Career Conversations

Talk. Create. Do.

Career Development

The word “Career” means different things to people.  Some people are ambitious while others have different priorities.  However, most employees want career development to help improve their prospects for pay, employability and job satisfaction.

Yet Managers are often unclear about how to have a meaningful career conversation with their staff.

Our Career Conversation training helps Managers motivate staff, unlock their potential and keep in-demand talent on-board.

It’s a win-win!

“Our Board and all of our Managers undertook Career Conversation Training with Personal Career Management. The resulting career conversations with the staff gave us much clearer information about what our staff wanted, in particular that while not all of our support staff wanted promotion, they all wanted professional development and that this would be a key factor in helping retain them. We’ve amended our development spend as a result.”

    Is the training delivered virtually or in person?

    We can deliver training virtually or in person.  The format will be different depending on the medium.

    How will this help if there are very limited opportunities for progression in a company?

    Regardless of the size of your organisation and its internal career paths, there are always career development possibilities which can be suggested which are meaningful to the individual and helpful for the organisation.
