The Lonestar Veterans Association and CDR Assessment Group, Inc., are excited to offer the "Vets Coaching Vets" initiative. Together we provide authentic career development workshops for veterans. Far too often veterans spend too much time at job fairs or in resume workshops when they are not aware of their inherent capabilities and needs to assure sustained success and personal fulfillment as they transition to civilian life. Every job is not a career, and while taking a job to cover the bills is responsible, it is irresponsible to avoid the hard conversations about what direction to take. When you work an ill-fitted job, the effects can be devastating. That does not mean your true career fit will not have challenging days or tasks that you do not enjoy. The point is knowing where you want to go in your career and how you are going to get there. With that said, the "Vets Coaching Vets" initiative will pave the way to optimizing veterans career trajectory through our Veterans Authentic Career Workshop.
We have partnered with, CDR Assessment Group Inc., an industry leader in coaching and talent development services. Our veterans will get first-hand knowledge in using the CDR 3-D Suite, through a facilitated workshop and hands-on training aimed to encourage veterans with a coaching profile to develop and provide career coaching to fellow veterans.
Before this workshop, you will take an in-depth character assessment taking about 2 hours’ worth of your own time. The CDR 3-Dimensional Assessment Suite® is a revolutionary tool that equips leaders and individual contributors to dig deeper “beneath the surface,” beyond obvious observations. During the workshop, a CDR trained coach will review the results from all your tests to form an inside-out clear focus on one’s character traits, inherent risk factors, and drivers, rewards and motivational needs. These essential insights help one move forward faster to formulate an impactful action plan accurately. Following the workshop, we will pair you with a coach for 4 hours of individual executive level coaching that will span two months as your coach helps you build a career plan and work with you on executing it.
The coaching conducted is by veterans trained on the CDR 3-Dimensional Assessment Suite® methodology to explicitly allow for greater depths of conversation with veteran participants.
