Office politics. Egos. Challenging economic times. No wonder both 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?
Confident Career Conversations will give you the practical tools and skills you need.
In this practical and interactive session, we will explore the importance of career conversations and how to hold them so they engage and empower employees.
