Having Career Conversations

12 November 2019

Listening, encouraging two-way meaningful conversation will assist in identifying and nurturing talent.  Encouraging the team to identify what their career ambitions are and to establish a plan to achieve them, will heighten engagement and performance.  Career conversations can help avoid inaccurate assumptions, and curb frustrations.  This session will equip participants with a toolkit that enables them to conduct genuine, meaningful and effective career conversations that are both motivating and meaningful for all involved parties.

Following the session, participants will be able to:

  • articulate the worth of ongoing career conversations to retain identified talent
  • identify the various types of talent in their team
  • adequately prepare for the 3 key career conversation types to ensure meaningful outcomes
  • use conversation prompts to explore key considerations: motivational factors, obstacles to growth, goal setting and action plans
  • use strategies to engage and involve team members for ownership of career progression
  • identify attitudes to uncertainty, change, and opportunity
  • address learning needs/gaps to develop the individuals’ capability
  • gain buy-in for change, development and improved performance
  • utilise advanced questioning techniques & listening skills to ensure effective communication
  • ensure these career conversations result in clear action plans.
  • seek buy-in from key stakeholders to ensure outcomes of action plans are met.
  • create pathways in co-operation with staff that enable career progression within the business, improved retention rates and higher ROI
  • be more responsive and adaptable to marry the needs of the business and the career aspirations of talented team members
