Men’s lives are changing fast in all sectors of employment and amongst those who are seeking employment. This workbook is for all men at work or seeking work: for men on their own, men in relationships and men as fathers.
This fourth edition of the Navigation Devlopment Workbook for Men has been extensively revised and updated based on the experiences of thousands of men who have successfully completed the programme and the changes that have taken place globally.
This workbook is an integral part of the Navigator Development Programme for Men. It covers realistic self-assessment, clarifying values, understanding the world of men in the 21st century and challenges the expectations of men based on historical roles. It involves setting a goal strategy that works, benefiting from coaching and support, taking risks and managing change.
This Navigator workbook is packed with ideas and practical exercises to assess yourself, identify where you want to go in life and then equip you with the positive attitude and many of the skills to get you there. Other men, who have successfully completed the programme, have written their stories and shared their experiences to inspire you to action.
