For a long time, people were seen to be as good as ‘married’ to their job or workplace for life – today employment and career represent more of a transient ‘significant other’. In the current time of economic globalization, an increase in precarious employment conditions alongside mass job cuts is becoming the norm. Entire sectors are disappearing while new ones emerge. For the individual this represents a whole new set of challenges – but also many possibilities.
Today it is more important than ever to take control of our individual career path and actively shape how we spend our days. To prevent a tendency towards simply adapting to outer conditions but rather promoting real personal and occupational development, we need to be able to understand biography for mastering vocational challenges. This we understand as living up to personal competencies, the ability to set individual learning targets and to grasp one’s own biography as a living process of development. It is also a chance to discover what societal needs there are and how these relate to individual abilities. We support organizations in setting up age and life-phase specific personnel and organizational structures as well as relevant operational skills management schemes.
We also accompany groups and individuals through change processes in order to empower them to shape their personal and professional life more confidently.
