Benefits of attending

Career conversations really matter!

Maybe you aspire to being the sort of people manager that your employees will remember? Someone who really helped them be their best? Countless research studies have demonstrated the power of giving employees personal attention and feedback about their hopes and aspirations and how this directly impacts on engagement, retention and performance.

Many managers however, find it a challenge to find ways of supporting the career development of others. Lack of time or not knowing the best way of doing it often gets in the way.

In this webinar Rosemary will share some tried and tested approaches that will help you to identify how you can support the careers of others in the context of your organisation and the wider trends in work and careers.

She will challenge the notion that ‘career’ is only about upward career progression and demonstrate the value of broadening what career means for different people and organisations alike including, ‘in place development’ ‘job enrichment’ and ‘lateral career growth’.

It’s all about the conversation

In addition, Rosemary will stimulate you to identify who in your team has the greatest need for a career conversation right now, and provide you with a ‘career conversation’ structure that will help you prepare for and get the most out of career conversations. This will include exploring your role as a manager, and how to surface creative ideas for developing others.

Equipping your employees to future proof their careers

Often managers feel that that they need to come up with all the answers when it comes to career development and this can be a real barrier. Instead you’ll learn about tools and resources that are available via CIH to help employees take more responsibility for their own careers including a new on-line careers course called ‘Be Bold in Your Career’>>.
