Introducing the ADESA Model:Assess, Differentiate, Explore, Scribe, Achieve

How it works, step by step:

Step 1: Assess: Find clarity regarding your core needs, talents, interests, and motivations.

This essentially means you need to take the time to get to know yourself, get a handle on what you’re good at, what you like to do, and what you really want. Assessments give you a way to organize, identify patterns, and discuss what you know about yourself, so you can relate this self-awareness to workplace possibilities. While these benefits are extremely useful in the career transition process, it’s important to emphasize that career assessments do not tell you what to do or be when you grow up.

There are a wide range of career assessments available to help you clarify what’s most important. To get the most out of career assessments, you may want to consider working with a professional career services provider. Good career service providers are qualified to administer a full range of career assessments to help you organize and discuss what you really want and find important for your next career decision.

Step 2: Differentiate: Create demand for what you offer that’s remarkable and unique.

This means you need to take the time to develop a clear understanding about all that you offer. You have natural talents and developed strengths that serve you well in your work. The question is how aware are you these attributes? It’s important for you to be able to speak with ease about the remarkable qualities you can bring to a new work experience.

To begin the work of identifying these qualities, ask people you know to tell you a story of a time they’ve seen you at your best. Review all the examples you receive from your friends and colleagues. Consider what themes emerge. Pick the example you like the best, and practice talking out loud about what that experience was like for you. You may wish to use these three questions as a guide:

What was the Challenge you faced? What Action did you take to address the challenge? What was the Result of your actions?
