Allowing people and product to flourish
‘Are people in the function that is right for them? I want to know who is ready for a new challenge, another approach. In our company? Or a different path altogether? Let’s look ahead and make plans.’
You want to have a clear view of the qualities of your employees and the possibilities they have, in order to maximize use of their capabilities. Your employees want to do satisfying work, the ability to grow and build towards a promising future. Authentiek’s career guidance helps them figure out where they stand in their career, which direction their path is to take and how to go about achieving that goal.
Authentiek and your employee cooperate to find out his or her capacities, drives, interests, qualities, strong features and pitfalls. Questionnaires and role play exercises aid in this process. Character traits and professional interests are translated into concrete career choices and planning. Such a plan contains points to develop and career opportunities, as well as the steps that need to be taken in order to achieve goals that were set. Steps may include coaching or enrolling for further education, or even changing functions.
‘People who excel at what they do take pleasure in going to work. I want to see this pleasure in my workforce. Are they aware what their strongest facets are? Who can help them progress?’
Through coaching, Authentiek helps your employees to (re)discover and develop their talents and skills. A personal challenge that leads to increased self-awareness and better performing. We support your employees in assessing their ambitions, boosting their effectiveness and broadening their competencies, as well as finding more enthusiasm for their work.
Authentiek helps your employee to assert the goals of the coaching. With that a concrete plan of the content, method and duration of the coaching process is made. Each process is different as it is tailored to specific needs, but in general comprises 6 to 8 sessions, each lasting about an hour and a half. Coaching may entail discussions with the coach, discussing theoretical approaches and applying this in the actual workplace, role play exercises; it depends what the goals and the personality of the employee are.
‘We want to grow with the dynamic market. But not everyone agrees to that. If people opt for another route, I want that to be properly taken care of. A new opportunity for them will positively reflect on my reputation.’
Outplacement (redundancy management guidance)
Your company is in need of development: increased efficiency, stability or growth. It is likely that not all your employees want to partake in such development. Outplacement is then a good option, as it ensures development for both you and your employee. Authentiek helps them find a new position, or supports raising their profile or a switch in their career.
Together with the employee (in consult with the employer as well), we plan an approach, in order to find a satisfying new position. The plan contains de desires, expectations and goals of the employee. During the process we regularly see to it that we are still on ‘the right track’, or if perhaps we should adjust part of the plan or some of its goals.
We coordinate the entire process, starting with an extensive examination of a person’s capacities: their talents and knowledge but also their hidden or underutilized skills. Towards the end we offer support in finding and applying to vacancies. In the process we deploy the means which best suit a candidate, be that a development assessment, exercises, or coaching.
