F. The Full Scope of the BG5™ Career & Business System Consultant Training Program:

BG5™ Foundation – The Fundamentals

The goal of the BG5™ Foundation Course is to develop the knowledge and techniques to help your clients recognize and utilize their unique individual gifts and talents in their careers and their lives. We’re in an era of individual self-empowerment, and many of the traditional methods of career coaching, and business consulting are outdated and no longer work. The BG5™ Foundation Course prepares you, and gives you language and tools needed for the careers and businesses of today.

The BG5™ Career & Business System method is specific to each individual, and defines a variety of key areas that serve the individual in search of a career, and businesses in search of the perfect employees and executive staff to fit their needs. We call this method the BG5™ Success Code, and the BG5™ Foundation Course will focus on how individuals can work with their personal Success Code in the business world.

Your goal in this first course is to create a solid foundation on which to build your ability in the BG5™ Consultant Certification to offer career and business analysis. (BG5™ Foundation Course is the equivalent of the IHDS Foundation Courses).

Semester 1 – Personal Operating Style

Each of us has a specific way that we operate, as individuals and when interacting with others in the business world, that is reflected in our Personal Operating Style.

During Semester 1 we’ll begin to uncover the components that make up this style:

  • Career Type (how do we express our gifts in the business world)
  • Personal Interaction Strategy (how do we best interact with others)
  • Decision Making Strategy (what is our best decision making tool)
  • Assimilation (how do we process information)
  • The Nine Functions (which functions define our consistent strengths)
  • Shadows & Distractions (where are we taken off track)

Semester 2 – Creativity Operating Style

Our businesses and careers are the result of our creative gifts, and each of us has unique contributions to bring to the world.

During Semester 2 we’ll discover the nuances of how to empower and validate these gifts in order to create and find work experiences that will be satisfying and fulfilling. The areas that we’ll explore, as well as practice synthesizing, are:

  • General Thematics (are we focused on Empowerment, Sharing or Support)
  • Strengths and Contributions (what are the gifts that we bring to the world)
  • Characteristics and Qualities (what is our unique expression of these gifts)
  • Public Role (how do we express and manifest our purpose in interaction with others)
