EXPERIENCED. SEASONED. INDUSTRY VETERAN. LEGEND. PERHAPS SOME OR ALL THESE PHRASES CAN BE USED TO DESCRIBE YOU – BUT YOU CHOOSE NOT TO BE DEFINED BY THE PAST. YOU ARE LOOKING TO WHAT’S NEXT.
It can be freeing and scary all at the same time. Whether you find yourself here by choice or through unexpected events, we are here to help you find clarity and confidence as you define what’s next for you.
Crosworks has developed a proprietary program we call Next Chapter. At a time when doors are open to living your life differently, the program includes customized elements that will address the issues most important and relevant to you. Together, we look at your passions, values, and core beliefs to help you determine what’s important in your next life chapter. Using our CE Survey and the Birkman MethodTMwe construct a holistic and flexible life plan that integrates your work aspirations, life stage, family responsibilities, health and financial situations and personal development.
Your Crosworks’ career strategist will guide you through this process and help to identify obstacles and patterns of behavior that could be getting in the way. Together we move through an approach designed to inspire you to reconnect with lost or buried passions, as well as determine productive engagements and how you will measure personal success. You will create strategies and draft your plan, and we will provide you with tools and encouragement to achieve it.
