How to Develop Top Talent

Effectively developing talent (especially millennials) in a way that fits your culture and business strategy can be a challenge.

Done right, the benefits of effectively developing the careers of the top current and future talent within your organization can be massive:
  • Decreased attrition
  • Lower recruiting and employee relations costs
  • Higher levels of productivity and discretionary effort
  • Improved employment branding

The advantages to employees are just as powerful including higher levels of engagement, commitment, motivation, pride, and development. Successful companies take a three-pronged approach to career development that is aligned with their culture and business and talent strategies.

Developing Top Talent provides managers with a practical blueprint of their roles and responsibilities in developing the careers of their direct reports. It uses a proven four-step career development model and provides a career development toolkit to support employee assessments and career path planning.

Navigating Your Career gives individual contributors a proven process and critical tools for "owning" their own career development and having effective career conversations with managers and peers.

Career Development Coaching Certification prepares people to become an internal career development coach by providing the process and tools for working one-on-one with employees to help them clarify their natural talents and strengths and to facilitate their discovery of which roles might be the best fit for maximum personal and company productivity.
