Spotlight Personality Profiling Tool

We are offering free access to the Spotlight’s personality profiling tool  for our Coming Ashore members.

In order to forge a successful path on the Coming Ashore programme, it is vital to have heightened self-awareness and clarity on your development when changing occupations.
Understanding your behavioural traits and how to channel them in a way that benefits you and your career could provide that all important advantage that is often needed to thrive in a role, or to help you get that role you want.
This tool takes you through a 15-minute development form testing your knowledge of your own ability on a plethora of work related tasks. The answers to these questions will highlight your strengths, risks, frustrations and challenges, building a comprehensive summary of your individual personality and style.
You can then assign yourself a development goal from your results and address the challenge you have set yourself by changing your behaviour accordingly.

Spotlight Review Service

You will be given a 30 minute Spotlight debrief per request. This would be an additional self-investmetn in your own personal development. While the Facet5 Spotlight report can be read without a 1:1 conversation with an accredited practitioner, a conversation and walk through the report will provide you with a deeper understanding and the opportunity to focus on key areas as you search for your next career move ashore. This would be particularly helpful in preperation for the Mentoring sessions. Cost- £100 per 30 minute debrief session.

(The Spotlight report is funded by the Coming Ashore programme and free to mentees, this debrief service is however payable to the mentee at a significantly discounted rate)
