What ​is the Clear Direction Individual Contributor (Employee) Development Program?

The Clear Direction Individual Contributor Development Program is a 6-month program designed for employees ​who are not in people management roles. Employment testing for individual contributor development provides objective descriptions about the individuals' biases in their thinking, as well as the clarity within those biases (i.e., emotional intelligence) that allows for accurate decisions in their daily work and interaction with their peers and direct managers. By working through the Clear Direction Individual Contributor ​Development ​Program, the participant will develop greater self-awareness by working on personalized development suggestions and receiving ongoing reinforcement to encourage personal growth and development. The program can be coached by a certified ZERORISK HR coach or a train-the-trainer option for in-house coaching.

What are the benefits of the program?

  • Enhances self-awareness by addressing the source of the behavior (thinking) rather than the symptoms (personality) and provides personalized development content rather than a "one-size-fits-all" approach—if we want to change behavior, we must first change our thinking.
  • Provides practical development tips that can be applied in the work environment rather than in a classroom setting—knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
  • Stimulates and directs communication about relevant matters between the individual and his or her boss and team.
  • Provides ongoing reinforcement over the course of 6 months—learning is best if it is a lifestyle, not an event!
