Let’s face the music, together:

Most employees are underwhelmed by the development planning process. Too often it’s not useful, uninspiring, poorly-informed, awkward and… avoided.

Frankly, it’s understandable.

Take an unclear employee, an important yet non-urgent conversation, a time-strapped manager, sometimes cumbersome HR systems and the writing is on the wall:

  • Non-existent or inadequate development plans
  • Lackluster employee-engagement scores
  • Constant “pushing” by HR during the development cycle
  • Lack of clarity into what your talent really wants professionally
  • Concerns about flight risk and retaining core (and millennial) talent

It doesn’t have to be this way.
