Skill Mapping: How to Define The Skills You'll Need for Future Success (Concentration: Skill Mastery)

  • 08-Nov-2021
  • Three Learning Options: As an online class, with a coach, or with a mentor


  • This is just like taking a regular on-line class.
  • This is DESIGNED FOR BUSY PEOPLE who can't devote the time needed for a normal class.

    You meet with your coaching for 30 to 60 minutes each week. Each module takes two weeks. Week 1 is the theory. Week 2 is the application.

    We start with Week 0 onboarding & orientation — so you get the most out of online learning. During Week 0 we also preview the class and allow for face-time with the instructor.

    You have a MONEY BACK guarantee. You can get a refund during the first two-weeks of class.

    SPREAD PAYMENTS OUT. If you join as an Academy member, you can subscribe and spread out the payments into 4 payments of $300 dollars.
  • Prerequisite: Option 2 Skill Mapping With Coaching

    WHY? There is an old saying that goes, "The best way to learn it is to teach it." And some people in your life deserve the personal approach.

    MENTOR ANOTHER with the help of a seasoned guide.

    PRICE includes you, AND one other (a family member such as children or grandchildren, a friend or a coworker). Learn it yourself and mentor another through the process and receive assistance from the instructor.

    TWO WEEK CYCLE: For each online module, you focus on the theory the first week. The second week? It’s dedicated to application and time for practice.

    CERTIFICATION: This also serves as the first phase in the certification process allowing you to use the content to mentor others. And contact us for information on installments and subscriptions.
  • We customize for organizations.

    The first three options are for individuals. This option refers to a group.

    If you have a group that could benefit from the class or a module of the class, contact us by filling out a contact form or email us at:

• 100 percent risk free. You have a two-week MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE on all programs.

• START ANY TIME on Self-Paced, Short-Courses and Customized Coaching programs.

• FULL CLASSES always start the following week of the public start date to give time to cover normal administrative items, introductions

• COACHING programs can be offered on a subscription or installment basis.

 It doesn't pay to be lost and confused, uncertain of direction, full of doubt over what work roles you want to play, and what mountain you want to climb on the path to career success. 


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.
