The availability of career path choices, and the resources necessary to achieve them, is correlated to employee satisfaction and retention.   This is no different for the MSL; however, their career pathways may not be easily discerned.   Successful MSL career development requires earnest self-appraisal, management commitment, realistic career path options, and a culture that embraces MSL advancement.

This interactive workshop will be facilitated by 2 individuals with extensive experience as both MSLs and MSL managers.  Format will be short didactic presentations interspersed with audience participation, culminating with a hands-on exercise dedicated to developing your own MSL career plan.

Upon the completion of this workshop the participants will be able to:

  • Define techniques to identify your strengths and weaknesses
  • Identify methods to learn about opportunities within your company
  • Describe various career paths available to MSLs, and the behaviors, competencies, and skills necessary to achieve them
  • Identify methods for securing management commitment to your career goals
  • Create a career development plan
