Today's work environment is changing rapidly. Historical retirement programs offered to employees by their companies are being eliminated. It is becoming more important for the individual to begin to plan for the long-term using their own abilities and not relying on the benefit packages previously offered by the organization. Many individuals are opting to go into business for themselves or provide an organization with help based on contractual arrangements for their services.
If you are considering a career change, you may wonder what it would be like to be your own boss. Small businesses represent a large, fast growing sector of the economy. There are many kinds of small businesses: entrepreneurial start-ups, professional services, skilled trades, retail firms, and franchises. Often people who start a business continue in the same general field in which they worked previously or choose a field related to a favorite hobby or interest.
Although the idea of running a business may be very appealing, the decision to start a business should be made only after careful consideration. To make a well-informed decision, you need knowledge of your personal characteristics that might help you succeed in owning and running a business or might act as potential barriers to your success.
The entrepreneurial assessment and consulting can greatly help you understand your strength and weaknesses. This information will be invaluable in helping you with your decision to become your own boss.
Paladin Associates, an organizational development and career consulting firm and long time advocate of success through self awareness, has developed an entrepreneurship program that focuses on one's business strengths and weaknesses in both professional and personal areas.
Small businesses represent a large, fast growing sector of the economy. There are many kinds of small businesses: entrepreneurial start-ups, professional services, skilled trades, retail firms, and franchises. Often people start a business in the same general field in which they previously worked or in the area of a hobby. Many are forced to consider starting their own enterprises due to corporate cutbacks. In any event, one needs to have knowledge of his/her personal characteristics that will influence success or act as a barrier to success.
Through Paladin Associates you can determine both your personality tendencies and your interest level in a number of occupations as compared with people already running their own companies. Your personal styles related to work, learning, leadership, and risk taking will be compared with the styles of successful business owners. You can take this assessment on-line at your leisure. In addition to a detailed written report (20 pages) you will have consultation with Paladin Associates in order to help in your evaluation.
