Many people work hard, accomplish much, and yet find themselves not getting the promotions they want, the respect they deserve, or the new job that they need. Previous courses covered the overview and the first two steps of the Road Map for Career and Job Search Success. This course focuses on the third step of the Road Map that helps you identify your “Red Lights” that may be derailing or impeding your career or job search.

We begin with reviewing examples of what they can be and suggesting that you personally examine yourself to see what areas may need improving. However, every company and hiring manager has different opinions and priorities for what really matters to them – and it may not be what you think. The challenge is to find out what decision makers think which is why we will introduce The Secret Formula, Level Two. This process will help you identify gaps that can be prioritized to help your career.

Finally, after understanding what you think are your Red Lights and what others think is important, we introduce an Advisory Program that you can use for either career success or the job search to actually solicit advice that can leapfrog your journey by months and years. By closing your red light gaps, as viewed by key decision makers with their priorities, you begin the process of revolutionizing your competitive edge – versus those who choose to “go it alone” and wonder why success is so hard.
