Career Assessment Workshop: CareerLeader

How often do we take the time to bring a clearer vision to our career dreams? Join the Wharton Club for a special opportunity to take the CareerLeader Career Assessment Tool and discuss the results in an evening workshop!

No question, these are challenging times for all professionals. But whether they are good times or not, how often do we take the time to bring a clearer vision to our career dreams? On Wednesday, January 7th, the Wharton Club of Northern California is pleased present Sasha Grinshpun, who will lead us in a workshop on how to get to that clearer vision. Moreover, each attendee will have the opportunity to take the CareerLeader career assessment prior to the event and then discuss their results on this evening.

Considered to be the most respected and comprehensive business career assessment tool in the market, CareerLeader is currently being used by over 400 top companies and universities around the world. The assessment tool is the product of 25+ years of research by Dr. Timothy Butler, the Director of Career Programming at HBS. Dr. Butler's latest book is Getting Unstuck: How Dead Ends Become New Paths (Harvard Business School Press, 2007). He has co-authored with James Waldroop two other books, Discovering Your Career in Business (Basic Books, 1997) and The Twelve Bad Habits that Hold Good People Back (Currency Doubleday, 2001).

A thorough review of CareerLeader and discussion of assessment results will be given by Sasha Grinshpun, a local consultant who has years of experience working with Dr. Butler and CareerLeader. The review and discussion will include:
  • A customized professional report, including scores along 3 critical elements of career development (interests, motivators, and abilities).
  • Recommended specific career paths that are likely to be your best career path matches, and why you match well.
  • Understanding key elements of corporate culture and how you will fit in with each.
  • Recognizing and helping you to cure your career "Achilles Heels"
We are also pleased to announce a rare discount for CareerLeader for those attending the Career Assessment Workshop. This is a members-only event, and each member may bring up to one guest. Registrants will have a link emailed to them a few days before the event so that they will be able to take the CareerLeader Assessment.
