20 November 2023

Lang EN Workshop language is English

Dr Ilaria Orsi ; Dr Caroline Betto Colliard


Have you already wondered about the values and motivation that guided your career choices? Would you like to be able to clearly identify your behavior? What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What are your dreams? And what strategies could you apply to develop and/or enhance your transferable skills?

Based on the TRIMA psychometric model and focused on your own experience, this workshop will guide you through the thrilling, inspiring and challenging process of developing your professional profile to improve your self-awareness and put luck on your side during the recruitment process.

The reflection will be based on the results of the TRIMA psychometric questionnaires, of the ipsative type, which document social styles (who am I? what are my preferences, my aspirations?), skills (what am I capable of, what are my behavioral patterns in the performance of professional tasks? What transversal skills have I acquired to date?) and your leadership style. The analysis and reflection will be accompanied by individual reflection, exchanges between peers, and reflection in pairs or small groups.
Learning Outcomes

At the end of the day participants will be able to:

• identify their aspirations, preferences and goals

• have a basis for thinking about future opportunities for professional integration and development • develop a profile of their cross-cutting skills and be able to use them in their professional file and in a job interview
• demonstrate his/her transversal competences through concrete examples
