How do the online tutorials work?
The Work You Want tutorial is designed as a weekly online video course. Every two weeks we email you a new tutorial which includes a video accompanied by: (1) templates, exercises and worksheets you can use to directly apply what you have learned in the tutorial; and (2) a list of references and additional external materials to provide you with additional inspiration.
Are the online tutorials live?
No, this is an online course - no traveling is necessary. Even better, the tutorials can be accessed from any devise from the comfort of your home or office, or during your commute on your phone or tablet. The course comes with lifetime access, so you will always be able to access the material wherever and whenever you want.
Do I get the entire course at once?
No, you receive a new tutorial every two weeks over the course of 8 weeks. This structure is intentional. Our goal is to get you results and based on the experience of our clients, we know that results are much better when you spend time to reflect and thoroughly complete the exercises provided.
To keep you motivated, we will continuously email you inspirational materials to help you advance at the pace gets you the best results.
How much time does it take me per week to do this course?
Good question, we don't know. Based on the experience of past students, we believe four hours per week is a reasonable average. However, this amount varies significantly depending on how much time you have already dedicated to exploring your career targets and personal aspirations, and how much time you are able to dedicate to the task. Globally speaking, the more time you put in, the faster you get results.
Does Work You Want cover job contracts, remuneration options, and taxes?
No. The focus of WYW is to help you understand what you want to do and then guide you to finding and getting your dream position. If you haven’t already completed this process, we believe starting from a basis of contractual topics misses the key questions that get you to the bright future you seek. Additionally, contract, remuneration and tax related questions are typically dependent on your specific context, e.g., country or region in which you are located.
Are there other options that help me to get work I want?
You could do a top-tier MBA and use this as your platform to change your career. That will easily cost you at least €100.000 and a minimum 12 months – not including the preparation.
You could hire a top-tier coach – if you find a good fit, coaches can be a helpful guide in self-exploration. This is why we include the option of mentoring as part of the tutorial (30 minutes free and options for further sessions). The advantage to our mentors verses a classical coach, beyond price, is that our mentors are trained in our unique methodology, allowing you to work independently on your schedule and supplement with 1:1 sessions with your mentor whenever you want. We exclusively work with mentors who are active professionals in their own right to ensure they are able to guide you from real world experience.
You could approach a colleague to mentor you or ask your HR department. Before doing so, however, it is important to consider whether this could negatively impact your career. Working with current colleagues to help your “move on” to your next challenge carries inherent risks. Often it is difficult to receive independent advice under such circumstances.
You could hire a headhunter because they have “jobs on offer” at any time. This can be a fast option, but the goal of a headhunter is to fill the positions they have, not focus on understanding your individual needs and searching for opportunities that match. Once you know clearly what you want, reaching out to headhunters to identify potential opportunities is appropriate, but it’s not the way to identify your dream job.
You could try to do it on your own – investing significant time on how to do that and finding the right materials to guide you along the way. That’s what we did when we started to build this course and we can assure you it takes a LOT of time and effort.
WYW is all about helping you get work you really want and our participants are focused on achieving a true understanding of what will make them happy and taking the necessary steps to get there. However, if you believe one of these other options works better for you, then we encourage you to do that.
