7 elements to better understand why, how and what INDIVIDUALS do.
1. WHAT WE DO
INDIVIDUALS are independent career consultants, that you can share and discuss goals, challenges, meaning and aspirations with.
We have an extensive network of ambitious young professionals that we can connect you with through our 1:1 career sessions and mentor programs from Copenhagen to London, New York, Shanghai, and Singapore.
2. WHY TALK WITH US?
We often experience bias in opinions and guidance when talking with our employer, colleagues, friends or parents about goals and dreams for our life and career. As external consultants, with no previous perception of you or stakes in your career, we provide a new and honest perspective on your life’s direction.
Having an open and honest conversation about your needs and desires will increase your self-awareness and shed light on your strengths and limitations, enabling you to utilize your full potential.
3. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT?
We dare to ask you questions that will challenge you, in the way you see your life and career. We facilitate a space of reflection and new perspectives that will push your boundaries/limitations as well as provide you clarity.
You will not only strengthen your self-awareness, you will also strengthen your own articulation of what is meaningful to you, as well as areas for development and how to get started.
If you want something tangible, we provide an award-winning behavioral profile which can be a good starting point for the conversation and your development.
4. WHAT ARE WE GOING TO TALK ABOUT?
At the session we will cover questions such as:
- What do you spend your time on?
- What do you like to do and not do?
- In which direction are you heading?
- What are you biggest challenges?
- Do you have a plan?
- Is there a need for a plan?
- The connection between your career and private life?
- How can we strengthen that connection?
We are looking for the red thread in the things you say and do. Together with you, we will plan your next steps towards achieving your goals and a more meaningful life.
“The most important thing for me was to be able to talk and discuss about myself and my career with an impartial partner. A person who has no perception of who I am and can give perceptive which the persons close to you can not because of their perception of you. That is why, I found it very valuable that the purpose of the program is to reflect and talk about yourself and receive guidance of what your next step in your career could be!”
Max, Regional Director, Absortech
5. WHAT HAPPENS AT THE FIRST SESSION?
The purpose of the first session is to get to know you as an individual. Having a conversation about how we can help you and how you can benefit from talking with us. We draw the big picture together and set the direction of where to go from here.
6. HOW, WHEN AND WHERE
Get started by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
A session takes between 1 and 2 hours. We provide sessions every day including weekends both during daytime but also after “regular” workhours.
The session can take place at our office at Lyngbyvej 2, Vibenshuset or at 819 West Nanjing Road, WeWork. We can also come to you or we can meet at an external location
“When you have a busy week and a full workflow it can be difficult to find the time to reflect and take action upon your bigger ambitions and aspirations. What are my ambitions? Which goals should I perceive? This is what I use INDIVIDUALS for.”
Line, Director of Operation, China Experience
