Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations that Organizations Need and Employees Want

Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations that Organizations Need and Employees Want

By Julie Winkle Giulioni

Pre-approved for HRCI and SHRM credits.

In today’s business environment, talent is a 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, productivity, customer loyalty, quality, and cycle time. Yet, despite its importance, leaders too frequently ignore the development imperative. Every day, employees who believe that their careers are not getting the attention they deserve to make the decision to leave.

Some resign to pursue employment in organizations that offer greater opportunity. But the more dangerous group stays and withdraws its engagement, motivation, and enthusiasm for the work. So, what’s a leader to do? Plenty... and it may be easier than you expect. Quality career development boils down to quality conversations. 

Julie Winkle Giulioni demonstrates just how simple it can be and how to help managers 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.
