The Venturist Prometheus Career Development Course
Regardless of the nature of the work we do or where we do it, it will probably occupy much of our waking hours over many years and will directly affect our satisfaction and our happiness. Something as momentous to our future as our career deserves careful thought and planning lest we find ourselves years in the future unhappy with where we are and baffled as to how it happened.
Many courses are available to help you with the mechanics of finding and keeping a job. These courses can be most useful, but they rarely cover the strategic side of career planning—deciding what you want your career future to be and what you need to do to get there. This program, “Supercharged Strategic Career Planning,” with its video lessons and planning material will guide you through the process of building a truly strategic career plan and will familiarize you with the Prometheus Strategy Process--a way of thinking, planning, and executing that will help you do any job better and differentiate you from your associates.
