Who is on Your Career Team?

RoadDon’t try to go it alone. Even Luke Skywalker needed a support team.

A strong team will help you to solve problems you can’t solve, they will have knowledge you don’t have, they will know people who can help you.

Make it Happen

Identify your ideal team of 6 to 8. It doesn’t have to be a real person, you could have Luke Skywalker or Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games.

When you have identified your team look at each one and say why you chose them.

Did you choose Luke Skywalker because he “will never turn to the Dark Side” or because he is powerful, loyal to his friends, and great at using a laser sword?

Identify the key characteristics of EACH team member.

When you have finished look at the list of team strengths you want.

Check out your family, friends, teachers, sports coaches, anyone who could become part of your career team. If you are missing any vital elements, ask around. One of your team will know someone who could provide that missing element.

Good luck with creating your team. Chairs coloured

A fantastic careers teacher may have changed my life. I've spent my career going from job to job. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing. I then became an English teacher. Teaching has been the foundation for a lot of my career. I went into TAFE where I designed participation programs, then into HR, then developed training programs for industry.  I taught e-commerce and developed systems to make it easier for organisations to work together. I kept going for scholarships and going back to uni along the way. At one time I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks, and discovered it was tricky having a conversation about THAT with anyone I knew!! I now focus on delivering information that helps careers teachers to be fantastic. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter.
