Join Dr. Beverly Kaye, an internationally recognized authority on development, retention and engagement in the workplace, and her co-author Julie Winkle Giulioni, an award-winning instructional designer, as they share findings from their new book Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations Employees Want.

This session sheds a much needed light on effective methods and specifically what managers can do – within the time-starved, priority-rich, pressure-cooker environment in which they operate – to support employees’ careers and enhance organizational performance results.  A panel of internal HR leaders will share their perspectives, recommendations, and lessons learned.  You will walk away with practical tools, implementation suggestions, and a new simplified model that will help managers from your organization: 

  • Understand the perceived barriers faced in holding career discussions
  • Gain perspective on alternatives to the career ladder
  • Learn and practice an approach to growing in place
  • Apply a new focus on the individual development plan
  • Follow a model to the career conversation
  • Dialogue with internal practitioners about their best practices
