“Website(s) of the Week” is a weekly feature on the NWI Blog, highlighting information, individuals, organizations, companies, and services relevant to work and the workplace.
The approach of the New Year makes for a lot of resolutions, including promises to revisit work and career paths. The state of the economy is encouraging such reflection and planning, although not for reasons that make us happy. For some, a career planning coach or consultant may prove helpful. One good example of this is Dan King’s Career Planning & Management, Inc. (CPM). Here’s the link to their individual consulting practice:
Dan is the principal and founder of CPM. (He’s also on the advisory committee of the New Workplace Institute.) He has developed a special expertise in working with professionals who are considering career changes, including people between jobs and others Dan has called the “unhappily employed.”
CPM is hardly the only firm doing this kind of work, but I suggest its website as a very good example of what career consultants can offer individuals who are contemplating shifts in their work lives.
