Self-Motivated Personal Career Planning: A Breakthrough in Human Resource Management.
Walter, Verne
The author discusses major barriers which hinder the accomplishment of effective employee career management and presents Self-Motivated Personal Career Planning as a means to reconcile personal and organizational goals. The plan involves employee planners and management facilitators in a process of self-assessment and goal-setting, which capitalizes on the forces of one's own motivation to succeed in life and seeks to create an organizational climate of interpersonal relationships fostering personal growth and career development. Various steps are followed which lead to the composition of an individual's Personal Career Review and Action Plan Summary. The starting point for self-assessment is the construction of an autobiographical summary of educational preparation, work experience, and personal career accomplishment from analysis worksheets. Psychometric inventories are used for comparison purposes and the Career/Personal Development Profile is used for further specific self-knowledge. Participants then seek information and make predictions about desired or possible next career steps within the organization. The final step is directed toward goal attainment. The program was pilot-tested in 1975 with 80 administrators/managers/supervisors and 100 employees, as part of a company's affirmative action endeavors. A majority of program participants perceived it to be beneficial. (EA)
