Myers-Briggs Type Indicator:
Knowing your personality type, as measured through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument, can help you with career planning at every stage: from your choices of subjects and majors in school to choosing your first career, to advancing in your organization or changing careers later in life. Kristina is qualified to administer the MBTI, and you can request this instrument be given separately, or as part of your career counseling process.
How can you fully give your time and attention if you are drained by the frustrations of working together? True Colors helps you understand and deal with difficult people and teaches you how to tap into the strengths of differences to work synergistically as a team. When you can recognize the True Colors of others, you can understand how to relate to them better. You'll discover ways to motivate, encourage and communicate with even those you thought you could never connect with. Discover your True Color and apply it in your career exploration process and/or your current work.
Self-Directed Search (SDS):
The SDS can help you make the best career decisions wherever you are in your life. The SDS was developed by Dr. John Holland, whose theory of vocation is the basis for most career inventories used today. Dr. Holland’s theory states that most people can be loosely categorized into six types-Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional—and that occupations and work environments also can be classified by these categories. People who choose careers that match their own type are most likely to be both satisfied and successful. Your career exploration process can include this inventory. Kristina will discuss your results and provide matching career options.
Additional online assessments to supplement career exploration, such as the Career Interests Inventory, Stanford Career Development Center: Identify your level of career interests within several career industries, then you will be matched with possible careers.
