Career counsellors are often the first point of contact for students looking for career guidance and insights. This is where Wingfinder comes in useful as a starting point - career counsellors can use Wingfinder to help students gain self-insight and self-awareness to kick-start the career conversation.
Invite students to take part in a 1:1 Strengths Coaching to teach them how to leverage their strengths. As pre-work, the student completes Wingfinder to gain more self-awareness. Building on the student’s self-insight, you can coach the student on how to best communicate their strengths and weaknesses, illustrated by real life examples.
Ask students to send you both their Talent Passport and individual Feedback Report before the coaching session. The one-page Talent Passport summarizes their top 4 strengths and describes the behaviours that come naturally to the individual and the behaviours that might raise challenges.
The individual Feedback Report can be the focus of the coaching session. It elaborately analyses the student’s strengths split into the four key personality factors and includes a coaching plan. The following example feedback report is a great basis to learn how to interpret the report which can then be used as coaching guidance.
