Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Study after study confirms that career development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving retention, engagement, productivity, and results. Nevertheless, it’s frequently back-burnered. When asked why, managers say the number one reason is that they just don’t have time—for the meetings, the forms, the administrative hoops.

But there’s a better way. And it’s surprisingly simple: frequent short conversations with employees about their career goals and options integrated seamlessly into the normal course of business. Beverly Kaye, coauthor of the bestselling Love ’Em or Lose ’Em, and Julie Winkle Giulioni identify three broad types of conversations that will increase employees’ awareness of their strengths, weaknesses, and interests; point out where their organization and their industry are headed; and help them pull all of that together to design their own up-to-the-minute, personalized career plans.

Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go is filled with practical tips, guidelines, and templates, as well as nearly a hundred suggested conversation questions.

Synopsis:

Career development is a responsibility that managers know they should do—and frequently even want to do. Despite that, it’s always getting back-burnered. There are lots of reasons. But the #1 reason managers give is that they don’t have time. Don’t have time for the meetings. The forms. The moving people around like chess pieces. But news flash: employees will leave if they aren’t developed.

In this book Bev Kaye and Julie Guilioni invite managers to re-frame career development in such a way that responsibility rests squarely with the employee and their role is more about prompting, guiding, reflecting, exploring ideas, activating enthusiasm, and driving action rather than actually doing all the work.

This happens through the simple act of conversation. And career development conversations can be easily integrated into the normal course of business, not separated out as a special task. Kaye and Giulioni identify three types of career development conversations and provide questions, templates, tips and tactics for having them. Managers can stop worrying, avoiding, delaying or taking on too much responsibility for their employees’ career... and just start talking.

Kaye and Giulioni identify three broad types of conversations that have the power to motivate employees more deeply than any well-intentioned development event or process. These conversations will increase employees’ awareness of their strengths, weaknesses, and interests; point out where their organization and their industry are headed; and help them pull all of that together to design their own up-to-the-minute, personalized career paths.

Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go is filled with practical tips, guidelines, and templates, as well as nearly a hundred suggested conversation questions. Illuminated with stories, quotes, and the perspectives of real managers and employees, this book proves that careers are best developed one conversation at a time.

“Should be the career conversation bible for busy leaders!”

—Marshall Goldsmith, author of the New York Times bestsellers Mojo and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

“This is the best, most comprehensive resource available. It’s perfectly relevant for new supervisors, senior executives, and leaders at any level.”

—Sharon Silverman, Vice President, Human Resources, Macy’s

“Every manager will find this short book to be long on practical ways to make career development happen.”

—Jack Zenger, CEO, Zenger Folkman, and coauthor of the bestselling The Extraordinary Leader and The Extraordinary Coach
