"Career paradigms are rapidly shifting — work roles are being disrupted — you can't assume what worked in the 20th Century will work in the 21st." — Murray Johannsen

Skill mapping provides a process and a map — a way to figure out what to do now and in future. 

For we all want to get to the top, to create a better life for us, our children and our grandchildren. Not doing this means we are lost, likely to "die on the mountain."  

Today, you just can't rely on a university degree or corporate training programs to drive career success. Can you imagine how it would feel to realize you have wasted years on the wrong path? 

Each of us, entrepreneur, executive, student need a robust strategy we can execute on each month. You cannot assume what worked last century will work in this one.    

Skill mapping gives you the confidence — the power to know where you are going and how you can get there. It provides a path to follow and and the skills to build.  

So get ready to imagine your vision for yourself — your career, your business, and your life – yours, not the bosses, not the corporations, not the government, not your parents. Yours.

    Step 1: Craft Your Vision: Flesh Out The Four Roles To a Better Future

    This module is also currently available as a Self-paced Course OR with Coaching & Mentoring.



    Roles aren't just played in Hollywood and Bollywood. On the stage of work, you can be a bit player or a star. Imagine your future roles a future you define — not your boss, not your parents, not your university — you.

    See the Module Course Description 

    Step 2: Set-Up the Environmental Scanning Process




    Sure, you can surround yourself with a zone of complacency and now understand what's going on. But the world is stronger than your security blanket. You might as well know as to be ignorant.    

    Step 3: Identify and Prioritize Threats and Opportunities

    "Luck is what you call it when preparation meets opportunity." — Gen. David Petraeous, Frequent Saying, Washington Post, June 23, 2010


    You’ll be in the career slow lane if you can’t sense opportunity. Worse, you can lose what you have if you don’t deal with primary threats. Be a strategist — of your own career. 

    Globalization is not all peace, love and happiness. The evolving global economic structure has created a number of real threats and possible threats that will have to be dealt with and planned for. This section will look at existing threats and highly probable ones impacting global business.

    It was once said that opportunity is often masked as an insurmountable problem. Since there are no lack of problems in the world, we all must be surrounded by opportunity.

    Unfortunately, very few people know what opportunity is let alone sense it. To paraphrase a Winston Churchill hill saying, "The average man trips over opportunity, but quickly stands up and keeps going."

    Step 4Uncover Your Core Five Skill-sets, Your Virtues, Your Traits 

    “You get hired because of your strengths, fired because your weaknesses.” — Murray Johannsen

    You can't easily change your traits, but you can build your skills. Some skills are always in demand and always pay well. Paradoxically, these are often skills not taught in the universities.  

    In the Core Five model, every role has a unique set of five competencies. They are:

    • Technical. 

    • Leadership. 

    • Management. 

    • Strategy and Tactics, and 

    • Self-Mastery. 

    Be smart — build what the universities don't teach you but corporations want — and what your desired roles require  

    Step 5:  Determine Your Own Strengths and Weaknesses

    “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” — Sun Tzu, The Art of War

    “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ― Abraham Lincoln

    As Legacees founder likes to say, “Your strengths get you hired, your weaknesses get you fired." There’s nothing worse than being blind-sided; you can’t fix what you don’t know was broken. 

    And remember, no great dream is every achieved with the strengths you now have. Iif you see yourself as an unfinished work, as someone who doesn’t want the same job for 30 years, as a person who wants to move up the ladder of success, you better work on those weaknesses.

    Step 6: Take Action: Perfect The Art of Strategy and Tactical Execution


    Mapping. On the journey of life, you better have a map or you will always be lost. That's the purpose for the first six steps. 

    Once map has given you the layout and your destination, but one must choose from among different paths to get there. For example, skills needed must be built and ignorance diminished.   

    This is the Routing. Choosing the best path is not so easy when you have lots of alternatives to sort through.

    One has to figure out how this has to be done. Understand that there are others who can do your job and machines might as well so forever build skills. Don't stop  

    This is where assessments, a mentor, or a coach comes in handy — it’s vital to get feedback from an expert. They can provide specific details only someone who really mastered a skill is capable of knowing.

    And to make the course more enjoyable, there are:

    Memorable Quotes. Lots of them from the famous and the wise.

    Beautiful Images. Numerous paintings from the old masters. After all, eyes were not made to see in black and white.

    Faded Laurels. Skills have to be refreshed. It doesn't pay to rest on what used to work.

    Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men’s souls.” — Marcus Aurelius

    Success is more than just living in the present. Some people have dreams, but few have vision. Some simply live in the present; but others — they use the present to construct a better future.

    For example, birds exist day-to-day, squirrels store food in the summer for winter. And so it is with people. We best map out the roles we want to play on the stage of work. For we can be a star, but only if we prepare for it.

    You can choose to be a bit player on the stage of work or a superstar. But to be a star, you will want to learn skill mapping

    This module covers essential elements needed to stimulate foresight and construct a personal vision.

    The first-step is not easy for some. Why?  It calls for you to project yourself into the future using your imagination. If you somehow manage to get from K1 to 12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it. 

    The case can be made that formal education causes imagination to atrophy. Think back, in any of your classes at any time in you life, did a teacher ask to close your eyes and use your imagination? Most people cannot come up with one time — not even once in the many years of sitting in a class room. If you somehow manage to get from K1 to 12 with your imagination intact, surely college will destroy it. 

    But what was atrophied can be fleshed out. 

    A core part of this process is to define the key skill-sets required to play a particular role. But before that, one has to define your social roles. Three of them are future oriented, one is related to what you are currently doing.

    Step 2a: Your Current Role

    Step 2b: Your Next Role

    Step 2c: Your Dream Role

    Step 2d: Your After Life Role


    Roles aren't just played in Hollywood and Bollywood. On the stage of work, you can be a bit player or a star. Imagine your future roles — a future you define — not your boss, not your parents, not your university, you.

    Objectives:
    • Develop a deeper understanding of foresight
    • Practice developing a vision for your future.
    • Write out your Four Roles

A Word By Your Instructor — Murray Johannsen

I hope rather than just giving you a dull bio, that you don't mind my sharing a bit of philosophy. 

Honestly, I do enjoy the teaching. But the way it's normally done is pretty boring. What makes these programs exciting and worthwhile is coaching and mentoring in the level II learning programs.

In our weekly conferences, it's a joy to hear about how you plan on applying the theory, feel good about the joy of your success and feel sad at the failures (this is applied learning after all).

There are no grades but there is feedback.  If you have questions, feel free to Connect on Linkedin
