About the Book
By the coauthor of the bestselling Love 'Em or Lose 'Em (more than 550,000 copies sold) and Love It, Don't Leave It (more than 100,000 copies sold)
Shows managers how conversation can make career development both more effective and a whole lot easier
Filled with practical tips, exercises, and advice to help managers get started immediately
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. 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 the perspectives of real managers and employees, this book proves that careers are best developed one conversation at a time.
The Enhanced Edition includes eight training videos (25 minutes) featuring the coauthors. It also offers an animation (2 minutes) to help readers share the messages of the book with others.
