Career Conversations Workshop

Help your employees think about the future and develop professionally

This was an excellent workshop thanks to the toolkit and its set of questions.

Office politics. Egos. Challenging economic times. No wonder managers and employees can find it hard to talk about career development. We all know it’s good to talk. But let’s face it. Opening up a sensitive issue like career progression can weigh heavily on even the most experienced shoulders. Where should you start? What questions should you ask? How do you help employees develop their careers? How do you deal with some of the dilemmas that might come up? Our Confident Career Conversations Workshop will give you the practical tools and skills you need.

  • Have a meaningful career conversation in only 20 minutes without any complex process or paperwork
  • Help employees feel more positive and satisfied with their current role no matter what their ambitions
  • Encourage employees to take development opportunities that will help them and the organisation
  • Have conversations that make employees want to stay with your organisation rather than go elsewhere
