Our Narrative Assessment System bridges latest career theory and thinking with a proven framework used successfully with thousands of clients from 80+ countries of origin. Brought to life by trained and caring career professionals, our approach helps clients get what matters from what happened to answer ‘What now?’ Our narrative method of practice is guided by the The Canadian Standards & Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners and more than 10 other theories and practices.
Our careers and lives go through cycles of stability and change. The CareerCycles Narrative Assessment System helps clients navigate these sometimes-difficult periods of transition and make clear, confident and well-informed decisions that lead to better outcomes, and happier and more fulfilling lives.
Our narrative system follows a two stage process, illustrated in the Model shown below.
Career & Life Clarification
Reflect on your past experiences to help you determine your strengths, desires, natural interests, and other important elements. Brainstorm relevant possibilities for your future and create a Career Statement that will help guide the next stage of our Narrative Assessment System: Intentional Exploration.
Whether the possibilities you’ve generated are a new career path, educational opportunities, entrepreneurship or something in your personal life we help you explore them before diving right in. This helps avoid investing time and money before ensuring your possibility is a good fit.
Our Narrative Assessment System has helped thousands of clients and is empirically proven to increase clients’ sense of hope, efficacy, resilience and optimism (read Retrospective Outcome Study in peer-reviewed journal article).
The CareerCycles Narrative System is delivered in our one-on-one Career Programs, through the Online Storyteller and in an introductory format through the Who You Are Matters! game.
