Help Others Develop Behaviours & Skills to Thrive in the Modern Workplace - Press Release

Developing Employability and Enterprise (9780749478476)3rd October 2016 - Developing Employability and Enterprise: Coaching Strategies for Success in the Workplace

Help Others Develop Behaviours & Skills to Thrive in the Modern Workplace

The world of work is changing at an increasingly accelerated rate, making it more important than ever for coaches, career advisors and educators to measure and develop employability for new entrants to the world of work and those finding themselves in situations where they need to secure a new job or even career.

Available today, Developing Employability and Enterprise is a complete guide to what employability looks like in the 21st century. The book shows how employability can be measured and how skills and attributes such as resilience, confidence, motivation, dealing with others, overcoming challenges and entrepreneurship can be developed through coaching and mentoring.

Supported by the latest research from academia, government bodies, and practitioners, Developing Employability and Enterprise brings together some of the most influential thinkers around the world to offer a new approach to career management that looks beyond simply offering advice on résumés and CVs, job applications, job searches and interviews. It offers practical guidance on what attributes to develop and tools for how to do this including assessment options, sample exercises, notes on how to use the concepts in practice and global case studies.

Advance praise for the book has come from Shane Mann, Publisher of Schools Week and FE Week, who has said that the book is ‘[w]ritten in a concise, conversational, accessible and persuasive way’, and that ‘it's like having a toolkit to employability success at your fingertips’. Similarly, Laura Jane Rawlings, Founder of Youth Employment UK (YEUK), has said that ‘Understanding how to develop the skills and mindset needed to improve success is key. Charlotte and Doug are experts in their field and have really got to the heart of the subject in this book’.
