Promotions Are So Yesterday
The time-honored tradition of defining career development exclusively in terms of promotions, moves, and title changes is dead. What lives on, however, are unrealistic expectations from this outdated mindset, leaving employees disengaged, managers disempowered, and organizations disadvantaged as they struggle to retain talent. The time has come to finally shed yesterday’s limited view of career development and find ways to enable the growth people and organizations need today.
The good news is that beyond, between, and besides the climb up the corporate ladder, there are countless other ways that employees want to grow.
In this talk, Julie Winkle Giulioni offers an easy-to-apply, research-based multidimensional career framework. This updated framework features seven alternatives to promotions—contribution, competence, connection, confidence, challenge, contentment, and choice—all of which offer powerful ways to grow that, unlike promotions, are completely within a manager’s control.
Participants will expand how they define career development and help others do the same thing as they move beyond old 1- and 2-dimensional views to embrace a possibility-filled 7-dimensional approach to career development.
Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go
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, 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 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. 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 managers build career development into everyday work life-where it belongs. Take-aways include tactical tips, research-based recommendations and verbal skills that make you more effective.
