Executive Career Development – How To Use Your Network.

When it comes to Executive career development chances are you will hit a glass ceiling at some point in your career. Your networking skills are the key to breaking through the glass ceiling and taking your career to the next level.

Our research has shown that 75% of our executive network finds their next move through a direct contact. In most cases the roles were never advertised and the successful candidate was approached direct with a tailor made opportunity. So how can you ensure that you are the one tapped on the shoulder next time?

Q Consulting Group run quarterly advice sessions, aimed towards executives who are looking to make the next step in their career. In the session we reveal the latest research on hiring trends and lay out exactly what boards are looking for in leadership hires.

Why executive careers stall and what you can do about it.

So far all sessions have had 100% attendance rates by executives with very hectic schedules. So why the big interest from everyone? When we sat down and analysed the feedback from the participants, it became very evident that senior executives are in desperate need of help and guidance to improve their career development and networking skills.

We have tailored the sessions around executive management to provide practical strategies on:

  • Career management, creating a fulfilling career.
  • Identifying future trends and emerging markets.
  • Creating an effective networking strategy.
  • How to build relationships with key decision makers.
