How to get ahead in your career - A personal development programme for those with real potential

"I never thought that I would be where I am today"

The aim of this flexible, interactive learning programme is to develop talented individuals to enable them to progress within their organisations and improve their career opportunities. The programme is designed for those who are not yet in management positions but who feel they would like to develop their leadership skills to enable them to take on more responsibility and achieve greater job satisfaction.

The programme focuses on developing the lifelong leadership skills that provide a platform for more focused learning and development as participants progress through their lives and careers. It is designed to provide a sound basis on which to develop the leaders of the future. Participants will be able to demonstrate informal leadership as a result of this programme, whether or not they are in management or leadership roles, benefitting both you as an individual and your organisation.

Trust, ethics, integrity, self-awareness, the ability to converse with others and to work effectively as both an individual or as part of a team, are all key elements that are required within businesses. To get ahead in your career, you will need to be able to demonstrate all of these qualities to enable you to stand out from the crowd. This programme will give you the skills you need to start you on that path and from an organisational point of view it is a good way to invest in and retain your future talent.

"Through the talent development programme that CHaRM introduced within my organisation, they helped me identify a career which I hadn't considered before. From learning that I enjoyed being an internal auditor, CHaRM suggested that I look into quality assurance and develop my skills to provide additional support to my organisation. We talked about how I would approach the directors about changing my role. I took up the role of Quality Manager and a year later we had successfully transitioned to ISO 9001:2015 and continue to engage all parts of the company so that we constantly offer quality products and services. I am really enjoying my new direction and the company has benefited from the dedicated focus I am able to provide."

  • More motivated individuals who aspire to management or leadership roles.
  • An increased skill and knowledge base within the organisation so that you are not exposed when key people leave.

Key learning outcomes include:

  • Increased self-awareness by discovering your own strengths, weaknesses and future areas for development and growth
