Making a career change can feel like a risky thing to do.   And make no mistake, if you approach a career change without knowing yourself well it really is a risk! People who make career change without really assessing themselves and their personal values can turn an anticipated successful new career into a big failure. 

Knowing your personal core values is a very important step in making a career change successful. Conflicts between one’s personal values and decisions related to work may lead to dissatisfaction and failure. It is therefore important to really know yourself well and the best way to do this is through a personal core values assessment. Your core values are basically your motivating force behind the things you do. They are influential in most of the decisions and actions you make although you may not be aware of it.

If you have a better understanding of yourself and your personal core values, making a career change becomes much easier. Understanding your own core values is an essential element of the career change process. There are many ways in which you can assess your personal core values. You can take personality assessment tests and seek the help of a career counsellor who can guide you through the process of self realisation for a better career change.

The Core Values Index is a great human assessment tool which is proven to provide an accurate picture of a person’s innate, unchanging nature. Unlike other personality tests, the CVI provides a 94 percent repeat-score reliability. It examines a person’s innate preference instead of just his capabilities. The CVI is helpful in understanding what will give a worker fulfilment in the work he does instead of merely knowing his capabilities in doing a specific job.

By recognising your core values, you will be able to understand your core motivational drivers and therefore make better career choices. It is quick and easy and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Contact Clarity Career Management today to learn how you can benefit from the Core Values Index!
