What I learned!
Soon after taking the OD Career Calling Assessment and reviewing my customized report, I completed Level 1 of the OD Career Coaching program. Level 1 is a free, self-paced learning approach tailored to my unique OD Career Calling Preference, which helped me develop:
OD Career Vision: A vivid, compelling, and authentic statement regarding the type of OD career I wish to develop, based off my core values and purpose, as well as the core population I wish to serve.
Career Mission: A clear, practical, and engaging statement regarding the overarching objective of my future OD career, based off of the type of organization I wish to work for, my specific competency levels and interests, .
Career Development Strategy: A concrete strategy stemming from my vision and mission, to start developing my OD career today! My strategy includes steps that are specific, measurable, meaningful, attainable, authentic, relevant, and timely. I also learned key search terms and websites that help to tailor and optimize my job search according to my unique preference.
Steps for Action & Accountability: A plan for engaging with the OpenSourceOD.com online community of those who share my Career Calling Preference. I also learned specific steps to first multiply my career success by taking a Level 2 coaching workshop, and second, help others develop their own OD careers by completing the Level 3 workshop.
