Career Path Appreciation (CPA) / Modified Career Path Appreciation (MCPA™)
The CPA is a one-on-one interview during which the participant has an opportunity to explore and reflect on his/her career, aspirations, the type of work he/she finds challenging and stimulating, and elements of work that frustrate him/her. The CPA Practitioner arrives at an understanding of the type of work that challenges and stimulates the participant at present (we refer to this as FLOW) as well as how this is likely to develop and mature over time. In summary, the CPA provides information about how individuals prefer to approach work and decision making, and how this will change and develop in the future (up to the age of 70), within the context of different themes of work.
The outcome of a CPA is a mutual recognition of the current scope of a person’s ability to make decisions (their current level of capability) and of their potential longer-term development (growth curve), using the The Matrix of Working Relationships (MWR) ©BIOSS as a theoretical framework.
The Modified Career Path Appreciation (MCPA™) is an internet-based version of the CPA that can be completed on line. On completing an online questionnaire, a telephonic interview follows to validate results. This validation session can also be done face-to-face.
