Learn about teaching with the ICCS
You can use the ICCS in graduate student orientation workshops, in specialized career development classes, or as an experiential component of courses in leadership, organizational behavior, or human resource management. In all of these, you can promote additional learning through our peer-coaching capability. Our focus group option provides a creative way to bring together students or alums with shared interests or circumstances. You can also use it to provide additional services for alums, either individually or in workshop groups. Our online platform supports you through the complete process from uploading a class list to helping participants determine and follow up on their individual action steps.
What our educators say...
I have used the ICCS extensively with executive students at both London Business School and IMD. It is the most effective tool I have seen for helping individuals help themselves along their career journeys. Rather than finding the "ideal box" for you to fit in, it helps you to map the space in which you will do your best work and develop in the ways most important to you.
The ICCS online system is an exceptional tool for better understanding one’s career motivations. The system provides participants with a thorough and practical means to make sense of their career aspirations, and in turn to take significant career development actions. I have successfully used the ICCS in both English and French since 2014 in my business school career management courses. The feedback from students is consistently positive, with many commenting on the clarity they have gained in managing their own careers.
We use ICCS in our Business Administration Masters of Science specialization in HRM. The peer-coaching tool is part of our Careers and Organization course and is used to highlight how individual careers can serve organizations, and how organizations can serve individual careers. Students love the experience, and it provides great input for follow-up sessions addressing meaningful work, talent development, and related topics. It also broadens the students’ awareness of workforce diversity beyond the usual indicators of gender, age and ethnicity.
I use the Spanish version of the ICCS with incoming MBA students at my university. Students choose their cards before starting the program, and work with a peer coach upon their arrival. They absolutely love it! It is a great way to set the scene for a program that will focus on their development as professionals, and not just on incorporating new knowledge. During the whole program the peer coaches keep accessing the website to track progress, share materials, and stay connected with an assigned professional coach. By the end of the program many describe their peer coaches as “a new sibling”.
