When considering a change, it’s important to think long and hard about what you really want to do. Be honest with yourself about how well your current job aligns with your ambitions.

Помнить, the world has changed, and digital literacy, collaboration, and a growth mindset are all important factors to consider. Также, review your online presence and make sure your Facebook privacy settings are tight and your LinkedIn profile is up-to-date.

Overall, this is a great time to think about a job that does more than just pay the bills. Look for a job and culture that aligns with the life you want. With so many openings, it’s a golden opportunity to find the right job for you.

Навыки делового английского 360 - Keeping your Career on Track 1

Добро пожаловать в Навыки делового английского 360 podcast for today’s lesson on keeping your career on track.

Today’s workplace looks pretty different from the one your parents toiled away in. Walk into an average office and you’ll immediately be struck by the fact that it only seems half full. Remote work – in one form or another – has become the norm. And the people themselves may look different. The baby boomers are retiring, and younger generations are entering the workforce, often with different values and expectations.

So now might be a good time to think about how your expectations have changed. How has your approach to your work and career evolved? Do you see yourself in a position to benefit from the current situation?

With the Great Resignation causing staffing shortages the world over, this is a great time to take stock of your career. You may be able to ask for more, whether that’s in salary, vacation time, benefits, or other intangibles. Competition for talent is stiff, and companies around the world are working hard to retain what they have.

Добро пожаловать обратно в Business English Pod для сегодняшнего урока по обзору прогресса в программа коучинга.

Вы ставите цели для себя? Более чем вероятно, верно. И это то, что мы много слышим о, особенно в новый год. Ставить цели это фундаментальная часть успеха. И если вы в тренерской роли, вы, вероятно, помогли другим людям ставить перед собой цели. Но настоящая работа не в установлении целей; это в том, чтобы следовать и вкладывать энергию в достижение этих целей.

И как чей-то тренер, ваша работа не выполняется, когда вы помогаете кому-то решить некоторые задачи. Следующим шагом является, что обычно означает сидеть с человеком, которого вы тренируете, чтобы оценить прогресс. Вы спрашиваете их, как идут дела, и слушать, как они описывают, что они сделали. Но иногда, человек на самом деле не прошел через. Что тогда?

Вот когда вы доказываете свою ценность, привлекая человека к ответственности. И это может включать укрепление ценностей вашей компании, как вы пытаетесь удержать человека к своим обязательствам. Конечно, человек мог столкнуться с барьерами, о котором вы можете спросить и обсудить. Все еще, эти барьеры не должны служить оправданием, и вам, возможно, придется немного подтолкнуть человека, чтобы раскрыть его потенциал. И, конечно, хороший тренер остается поддерживающим в течение всего этого процесса.

В сегодняшнем диалоге, мы продолжим слушать разговор двух адвокатов, Марион и Рэйчел. Марион была тренировка Рейчел, как она адаптируется к своей новой работе в качестве молодого адвоката.

BEP 353 - Business English for Coaching 2: Ставить цели

Welcome back to Business English Pod for today’s lesson on setting goals during a тренировка сессия.

You’ve probably heard that an important part of тренировка is listening and showing empathy. A good coach tries hard to understand the person he or she is trying to coach. That helps build trust, which creates a constructive relationship. But what is that relationship for? What kind of work does that trust allow?

Once you build a good relationship as a coach, then you can start talking about improvements. В конце концов, coaches don’t exist just to hear about people’s problems. Their whole purpose is to help people get better. And a big part of getting better is setting goals, which is something a good coach can help with.

So how do we work with someone on their goals? Что ж, that might start with asking about their motivation. В конце концов, goals have to be directed at something. If someone’s motivated by the idea of getting a promotion, then the goals have to relate to that. And that underlines the fact that they are the other person’s goals. We don’t set goals for them. We ask them about their goals. Then we can help them break their goals into smaller objectives.

Конечно, another important role of a coach is to give encouragement. So when we help someone set goals, we are in a good position to show confidence in their ability to meet them. И наконец, we might ask them about their next steps. Это, what are the concrete activities that the person will take as she tries to accomplish her goals?

В сегодняшнем диалоге, we’ll rejoin two lawyers: Марион и Рэйчел. Marion has been coaching Rachel as she learns how to be a better lawyer. На предыдущем уроке, we heard Marion trying to figure out Rachel’s challenges. Now we’ll hear her help Rachel set some goals.
