You know that if you expect your car to get you from here to there, reliably, it needs regular check-ups and maintenance. And, even though you may stretch the intervals, you know it’s something you need to do.
Why wouldn’t you get a check-up for your valuation career?
You’re relying on your career not only to get you from here to there, but to provide advancement and enjoyment along the way. Wouldn’t it be nice to know if you’re headed in a good direction, or whether – sooner or later – you’re facing a dead end?
Over the last decade, we’ve talked to hundreds of professionals about their career aspirations. We’ve been able to help them think about those aspirations in a real-world context. Our experience and perspective have proven useful in illuminating the way going forward.
This doesn’t always result in a move to a new employer. In fact, the majority of these conversations are with valuation professionals who are successful where they are and who simply have questions that need to be addressed, confidentially. As often as not, we’ll suggest ways to advance right where you are.
Compensation is the most common topic. In other words, “What am I worth?” Or, “What does a ______ earn?” You know from your own experience in the field that a reliable answer [Translation: What is my business worth?] requires a much closer look.
We start with our understanding of your practice and your role in it, and add the in-depth information we’ve gleaned from compensation studies, to paint a clearer picture for you. In those cases where your pay might actually be below your value, the obvious question becomes what can/will you do about it? We can help you evaluate your options.
Employers seem surprised that we talk with so many professionals who are satisfied where they are. So, especially if you put yourself in that category, here’s a question for you: What is it that if we saw it, you’d want to hear about it?
