As managers, we are expected to hold career and professional development discussions with our employees, although many of us feel ill-equipped for these conversations. Are you unsure how or where to begin with your employees’ development? Do your employee development meetings produce the desired results?

This webcast, intended for managers and human resource and talent development professionals, will:

  • Identify steps to having a positive career and development discussion with your employees.
  • Identify the characteristics of an actionable individual development plan.
  • Explain how to lead successful development conversations, including addressing common challenges.

David Hosmer, author of the September issue of TD at Work, “The Manager’s Guide to Employee Development,” will facilitate this webcast, which will help you create positive, effective career and development plans with your employees.
