Many of my consulting clients have found the following exercises valuable:
The Values Analysis
Use the Values Analysis Exercise to identify what’s truly important to you and make decisions that will increase your chances of a match between your career and your core values.
The Dream Job Analysis
After completing your Values Analysis, completing a Dream Job Analysis will help you flesh out a vision for the career you’re trying to start, grow, diversify and/or reinvent.
The Satisfaction Analysis
The Satisfaction Analysis can help you identify how to increase your career satisfaction by assessing what you want more of and less of as well as what you want to stop and start doing.
Decision Making Exercises:
A Pros/Cons Analysis is ideal for making difficult decisions that involve a lot of factors, like changing your job, career or major, moving to a new city, going back to school or transferring to a different one.
A Decision Matrix helps you simplify complex decisions by evaluating the criteria that influence the decision and prioritizing them so you clearly understand which truly tip the scales one way or the other.
The Brain Dump
If you are feeling overwhelmed, paralyzed or unsure where to start, the Brain Dump Exercise helps you get moving by getting everything out of your head and into a system that will allow you to organize and prioritize.
