Our Unique Approach - The RECI® model

Navigation and wayfinding are powerful metaphors for the life journey that is your career.

At The Career Development Company, we help you navigate your career and find your way. We developed the RECI® model as our unique wayfinder solution. Four practical steps support individuals and organisations to make sense of career.

This systematic approach to career development draws on expert knowledge, clear thinking for solving problems, and a collaborative approach to support you to manage your career amidst life’s complexities.
