We partner with individuals who are committed to maximizing their value to their organizations through management and executive coaching. CDA coaches are informed by years of counseling experience and current best practices in organizational management and business. We draw from this knowledge in guiding our executive coaching clients as they assign and manage work, train and develop employees, provide positive and constructive feedback and communicate and network effectively with individuals at all levels of their organizations.
We partner with organizations to assess the multi-faceted career development needs of their employees, and to design comprehensive career services to meet those needs. We have created nationwide career counseling and coaching services using a variety of approaches, including in-person, telephone, and the Internet. We also work collaboratively with organizations to design nationwide career management and mentoring programs, and advise on recruitment and orientation programming and training and development initiatives, as well as outplacement efforts.
CDA has created comprehensive training and instructor materials used to train tens of thousands of professionals and paraprofessionals in the field of career development. We respond to organizational requests to design and produce specialized curricula. We also work collaboratively with organizations to craft training curricula on career development planning for employees, supervisors and managers. We also design, script, and perform in video productions on a wide range of career-focused topics.
Career Counseling / Coaching
Based on clients’ needs and goals, we partner with them to assess their interests, skills, values and preferences – through both established assessments such as the Strong Interest Inventory, SkillScan, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and through structured interviews and experiential exercises.
We then assist clients in exploring their career options, systematically researching alternatives, and making informed choices. We coach clients toward maximizing their career success by teaching them strategies for open and direct communication, time and task management skills, professional presence, and authentic interpersonal relationships.
