Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations Organizations Need and Employees Want

Career development is ranked among the top global drivers for engagement and retention. Great leaders know that they can't take the development of talent for granted. Employees want their managers to understand their talents, challenge them, open channels for their development and link them to resources in the organization. They want someone to be attentive to their needs for growth. How leaders pay attention to and talk with the members of their teams is critical in the perception, feeling, and reality of whether the organization is concerned and interested in an individual's growth and career success. The audience will learn tips, tools, and techniques for positioning development as a key strategy for retention and engagement.

Love 'Em or Lose 'Em:
Getting Good People to Stay

Today's leaders need coaching that enables them to help their key employees thrive, constantly learn and give their "all" to the team and organization. Talent-minded managers know that if their organization is to be productive and competitive, they must not only "hang-on" to good people but also continually engage and develop them in order to meet constantly changing business needs. Faced with increased competitive pressures, many organizations are needing to do more with less, making the discretionary effort of employees willing to "go the extra mile" for the organization all the more important. The big question for most leaders is how to do this in a "no-time-to-do-it" environment. Love 'Em or Lose 'Em will provide practical, low cost, or no cost ways to engage and retain the intellectual capital in which your organization has already invested.

Hello Stay Interviews, Goodbye Talent Loss: A Manager's Playbook

Managers should routinely ask their best employees this simple question: "What will keep you here?" Unfortunately, most managers don't ask until they conduct employee exit interviews. By then, the question comes too late.  A Stay Interview is a one-on-one conversation with employees about what they care about most on the job, and how you can adjust or coordinate their circumstances to make them happier. Stay interviews can be used with talent at any level. When you deploy stay interviews correctly, they engage staff members and increase their productivity. Managers will learn the signs and situations that cause individuals to consider looking elsewhere for employment. They will also learn a specific approach to mining a conversation for no cost and low cost information that managers can apply to retain the critical talent on their teams.
