What is the Career Strategy Road Map Programme?

The Career Strategy Road Map is a 8-week immersive program, designed by Protoscience in partnership with Strivin. Over the course of the program, career strategist Jo McCatty will guide you through your seven stages of career road map and daily practices. You’ll finish the course with a complete career roadmap, confidence in your pathway, and the opportunity to continue learning through peer mentoring or ongoing coaching.


Week 1 - Why do you want to be a leader?

Recruiters take actions in their role as  the business they serve are hiring or replacing people . It is expected that recruiters are to have an adaptive influential Leadership style vs the hiring managers level of maturity , appetite of the business to partner and whether recruitment is already seen as an asset vs order taker; This first session helps you to figure out your leadership style and evaluate that vs your remit, the sectors as well as the  people you supply or serve. 

This is the start of the journey to Leadership ; get clarity on the skills you have that form the anticipated success leadership profile.  You may just discover something untapped,  and what separates your leadership style vs others. Want to feel like a leader and actually be one? Proceed with curiosity to the next session.

Week 2 - Professional Story and models of inspirational leadership

Moving from session 1 the first part of this session is about crafting your professional story as a leader. If you want to be a leader you need to believe, think, speak and act like one.  You will start  to write, “It started when”….and then you will fill in the rest. Once you do this exercise it will leave you wondering why you had not thought of doing this before, especially after hearing so many career stories told in interviews you may have participated in.

In the second part, you will understand why the unique skills and attributes that make you who you are, need to be taken up a notch. As humans we always want to grow, do more, be more, & add more value. Growth is one of the top human needs. Identifying the things that you enjoy doing with your leadership skills, will give some scope in mastering influence with clients and candidates you liaise with. It will give you your why more clearly.

Week 3 - Personal Brand and your value proposition as a recruitment leader

What type of leader do you want to be known as  & who do you want  to show up as?

You may often hear about ‘personal brand’ and how important it is when working with others or getting to know others to build those effective long lasting relationships and networks.. This is the indicator to others of who you are as a leader, what you do and how they will then perceive you as a leader. Understanding the importance of this in your recruitment career is the output of this session along with some hints on how to enhance the two things that you need to keep updated all along your career journey connected to your personal brand. 

Week 4 - Finding your voice

How do you articulate your value as a  recruitment leader verbally?  Whether at a network event, hiring manager  meeting, a candidate engagement session. Do you come across the way you want to? Do you get to describe yourself the way you wish to be perceived? This session is not about singing. It focuses on connecting back to achievements, defining moments and big decisions by answering a series of questions selected  from an exhaustive list and then sharing it out loud. This is where you will learn why and how to prepare, practice and ‘perform’  authentically your proposition  to make sure you stand out – with your newly discovered leadership skills by simply being you with a big dose of self appreciation and  authentic self confidence.

Week 5 - Your Career Plan and Goals

A plan without a date and the actions towards this, is just an idea or dream.

How do you make sure that you take massive action when it comes to your recruitment career?

When you think of the types of responsibilities you want to take on, what types of skills you want to use, how you want to be striving to get to get to that next stage in leadership – you need a massive action plan. Your plan should be the incremental steps that lead to the big outcomes you wish for. In this session you will be given the Rapid Planning Method used, tried and tested by professionals in the leadership and self development space.

Week 6 - Leadership mindset & values as part of your plan

The 4 things you need to use and leverage as a leader – Focus, Consistency , Self Determination and being values driven. In this session we will recap on how your mindset plays the protagonist in positively moving yourself from an individual contributor to having  a seat at the leadership table on an ongoing basis , where you want it  to be.
