In today’s business environment, talent remains the major differentiator. And, despite workplace uncertainty and volatility, developing and retaining that talent is one of the most significant drivers of employee engagement... which in turn is the key to contemporary business outcomes like resilience, revenue, profitability, and innovation.
Yet, despite its importance, leaders (especially given competing, high-profile demands) too frequently ignore the development imperative. And this comes with significant implications. Despite an uncertain job market, your best performers who believe that their careers are not getting the attention they deserve come closer and closer to making the decision to take their talents elsewhere. And given the number of organizations embracing remote work, their options are growing every day.
So, what’s a leader 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 follows... along with job satisfaction, retention and results.
Julie Winkle Giulioni demonstrates just how simple it can be and how to help leaders 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 session will help leaders at all levels:
• Unravel the connection been career development and business results
• Explore the factors (organizational and individual) that conspire to undermine career development
• Redefine what career development means today
