Career Warriors® is a specialist consulting business that provides career, behaviour and business interventions to Corporations, Business Schools and Individuals.
Career Warriors® was established to help mid-career professionals anywhere in the world find careers that matter to them and to develop their careers to make their best contribution.
At Career Warriors® we recognise that a career is not a single decision, but a series of choices and actions as the workplace changes and as we change. Careers are no longer linear or even predictable. Employers can no longer, even with the best intentions, provide guarantees of lifelong employment. Nor are they able to provide the financial security they did before. Career ownership, change-fitness, self-sufficiency and resilience are the new imperatives. When the organisation changes, many good people are left with CVs and training allowances, but no plan to move forward.
The so-called soft skills in the workplace are no longer soft. The adage that we hire people for their skills and fire them for their behavioural faults turns out be true more often than we admit. Emotional intelligence, leadership, ownership and accountability are all translated into behaviour. And we call them soft? Developing the ability to think, to manage your emotions and behaviour in the workplace are career promoting competencies. To empower others to focus, get things done and achieve results is how business works. Those who can manage themselves, build productive work relationships and get results will always be sought after in the modern workplace.
Career Warriors® is committed to support careers holistically. We believe that careers are not just a choice or a qualification, but a place of contribution, of personal fulfilment and of creating value. We believe that work is not just what you do between weekends. It's what you do to make a difference and to earn a living as you do so.
Career Warriors® does not use any psychometric testing, but rather uses processes, systems and skills to help individuals make choices and take action in their work lives.
Andrew Bramley heads Career Warriors®, a business he established after nearly 14 years as Andrew Bramley Career Consultants. He has worked with businesses across South Africa and presents public workshops on Career and LIFE/Work planning at the University of Cape Town's Graduate School of Business and the University of Stellenbosch Business School. Andrew has an MBA from the University of Stellenbosch, where he achieved distinction for his thesis 'Career Management, the key to peak performance'. He also has a B.A (Law and English) and a Diploma for Educators of Adults from University of Cape Town. He has held specialist and general management positions in business for nearly fifteen years and now travels widely to share learning with other consultants internationally. He has received generous teaching and mentoring over many years from Dick Bolles, author of What Color is your Parachute, which remains the best-selling job hunting book in the world. He has worked with John Webb in Germany where LIFE/Work planning programmes are offered through German Universities to continuing education students. Andrew’s work on behaviour comes from many years of work and mentorship from Lidia Vosloo, a Clinical Psychologist and the Doyenne of Executive Assertiveness in South Africa. His facilitation of her work for individuals, teams and organisational culture has become a premium offering to corporations and is life-changing for many people. Andrew is a popular speaker at career and business events.
Career Warriors® is dedicated to helping people find work they love and to take responsibility for their careers, their behaviour and ultimately, their lives.
