Why Career Conversations Matter

Office politics. Egos. Challenging economic times.

No wonder both managers and employees can find it hard to talk about career development.

What - or who - might you be missing?

  • Emerging talent?
  • Future leaders and successors?
  • Career development opportunities?



The Career Conversation Toolkit is a set of practical tools, developed by Antoinette Oglethorpe, for use by managers and in-house coaches.

It’s engaging, results-driven and designed to give you a quick and easy way to structure an effective career conversation.

Antoinette on career conversations

We all know it’s good to talk. It’s good to engage people in a conversation. To give people a voice.
So, why don’t we do more of it?
Effective career conversations have the potential to drive up levels of engagement and productivity within your organisation.
