I paid my money and took the online career anchors test I mentioned in this post:
It took about 15 minutes to complete and was in multiple-choice format.
Here are my top 3 anchors as reported by the test:
And here were my top 3 from a few years back while in paid employment.
The test results were included as part of a 6 page PDF report.
I also downloaded a 72 page workbook written by Prof. Schein that goes into additional detail on career anchors and their relationship with career development and the characteristics of jobs that attract or are a good match for our top anchor(s).
Since I’m now running a business, I will put completing this workbook on my own training and development plan; most likely to be done between Christmas and start of Japanese New Year Holidays.
And if I think there is interesting and useful material to share with you, then I’ll do so in a future blog update.
In the meantime, it’s back to focusing on the two primary activities of this business: sales and marketing.
Have you worked out what’s on offer yet?
