With the current job market being so uncertain, it’s a great opportunity to make a change, whether that means a new job in your current career track or a whole new career.

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. If you’re feeling unfulfilled, take the time to imagine what a more rewarding career might look like. If you’re not sure what that is, do some research and talk to people you know about what they do. The right job may be out there waiting for you, but you need to be able to recognize it.

When searching for a new job, don’t just focus on interests, kỹ năng, and rewards. Think about the kind of workplace you want and what a good work-life balance looks like. It’s also important to consider learning opportunities and advancement potential. Smart companies understand that people are looking for the right culture fit as well as suitable compensation and benefits.

Once you’ve figured out what you want, it’s time to update your resume and prepare for interviews. Make sure to include any new training, kỹ năng, and achievements. Nhớ lại, the world has changed, and digital literacy, collaboration, and a growth mindset are all important factors to consider. Cũng thế, 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.

Kỹ năng tiếng Anh thương mại 360 - Keeping your Career on Track 1

Chào mừng trở lại Kỹ năng tiếng Anh thương mại 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.

Chào mừng bạn quay trở lại Business English Pod cho bài học hôm nay về việc xem xét tiến trình trong một chương trình huấn luyện.

Bạn có đặt mục tiêu cho chính mình không?? Nhiều khả năng, đúng. Và đây là điều chúng tôi nghe nhiều về, đặc biệt là trong năm mới. Đặt mục tiêu là một phần cơ bản của thành công. Và nếu bạn ở trong vai trò huấn luyện, bạn có thể đã giúp người khác đặt mục tiêu cho mình. Nhưng công việc thực sự là không cần thiết trong việc thiết lập các mục tiêu; Nó theo sau thông qua và đưa năng lượng vào để đáp ứng các mục tiêu này.

Và như một người huấn luyện, công việc của bạn không được thực hiện khi bạn giúp ai đó quyết định một số mục tiêu. Bước tiếp theo là theo dõi, điều này thường có nghĩa là ngồi xuống với người mà bạn huấn luyện để xem lại tiến trình. Bạn hỏi họ mọi thứ đang diễn ra như thế nào, và lắng nghe khi họ mô tả những gì họ đã làm. Nhưng đôi khi, người đã thực sự theo dõi thông qua. Sau đó thì sao?

Điều đó khi bạn chứng minh giá trị của mình bằng cách giữ người chịu trách nhiệm. Và điều đó có thể bao gồm củng cố các giá trị của công ty bạn, khi bạn cố gắng giữ người đó theo cam kết của họ. Tất nhiên, người đó có thể đã gặp phải rào cản, mà bạn có thể hỏi và thảo luận về. Vẫn, những rào cản đó không nên dùng làm cái cớ, và bạn có thể phải đẩy người đó một chút để đạt được tiềm năng của họ. Và, tất nhiên, một huấn luyện viên giỏi vẫn ủng hộ trong suốt quá trình.

BEP 353 - Business English for Coaching 2: Đặt mục tiêu

Welcome back to Business English Pod for today’s lesson on setting goals during a huấn luyện phiên họp.

You’ve probably heard that an important part of huấn luyện 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. Sau tất cả, 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? Tốt, that might start with asking about their motivation. Sau tất cả, 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.

Tất nhiên, 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. Và cuối cùng, we might ask them about their next steps. Đó là, what are the concrete activities that the person will take as she tries to accomplish her goals?

Trong hộp thoại ngày hôm nay, we’ll rejoin two lawyers: Marion và Rachel. Marion has been coaching Rachel as she learns how to be a better lawyer. Trong bài học trước, we heard Marion trying to figure out Rachel’s challenges. Now we’ll hear her help Rachel set some goals.

Câu hỏi nghe

1. Marion hỏi Rachel về điều gì khi bắt đầu cuộc trò chuyện?
2. Mục tiêu ngắn hạn nào Rachel tự xác định cho mình?
3. What does Marion say she is “sure aboutand has “no doubt about?”

Chào mừng bạn quay trở lại với Business English Pod cho bài học hôm nay về English for coaching.

Everyone understands the importance of a good coach in sports, but what about a good coach at work? Trong thực tế, coaching is an important part of every manager’s job. Managing people isn’t just about telling them what to do and how to do it. A good manager helps employees develop and reach their full potential, just like in sports. And that requires an open and constructive coaching relationship.

Coaching involves an ongoing dialog between you and the employee. Together you’ll assess the situation, set goals, monitor those goals, and adjust your activities and objectives as you go along. Đúng, I said “together.The 21st century manager isn’t the same as the 1980s manager. The relationship is different. You have to be the boss without being bossy. You need to maintain your authority and the employee’s autonomy at the same time. That’s a fine line to walk.

Coaching often begins with a needs analysis. Đó là, you’re meeting with an employee to figure out what is working well, what’s not working at all, and what can be improved. That conversation will involve a lot of open-ended questions. It will also involve showing empathy, which is an important part of leadership.

When you talk about the employee’s performance, it’s important to give very specific examples of behavior. It’s also important to ask for their perspective on those behaviors. Cuối cùng, you want to get the employee to agree about what his or her challenges are. Only then can you move on to talk about solutions.

Trong hộp thoại ngày hôm nay, we’ll hear Marion, an experienced lawyer, coaching a younger lawyer named Rachel. Marion and Rachel are having an open discussion about Rachel’s performance, and trying to establish what her needs might be.

Câu hỏi nghe

1. Why does Marion mention her own experience at her first job?
2. What example of Rachel’s performance does Marion bring up for discussion?
3. After assessing the problem, what does Marion ask Rachel at the end of the conversation?
