Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go 

Career Conversations Employees Want

In today’s business environment, talent is the major differentiator.  And developing and retaining that talent is one of the most significant drivers of employee engagement…which in turn is the key to critical business outcomes like revenue, profitability, innovation, and customer loyalty.

 Yet, despite the importance of career development, managers too frequently can’t find the time to make it happen.  Every day, employees who believe that their careers are not getting the attention they deserve make the decision to disengage – resigning to pursue other opportunities or (even more dangerous) staying and withdrawing their engagement, motivation, and enthusiasm for the work.

 So, what’s a manager to do?  Plenty…and it may be easier than you expect.  Quality career development boils down to quality conversations.  Improve the conversation and career development improves….along with job satisfaction, retention, and results.

About this Event

Whether you are a manager, employee, learning professional or consultant, Dr. Beverly Kaye will show you just how simple it can be to build career development into everyday work life – where it belongs.  Practical tips, research-based recommendations, and verbal skills are offered to make career development a lot easier and more effective.  This Executive Breakfast session will be an interactive dialogue with Bev and your fellow colleagues.
