Description

Careers used to be predictable. There were ladders. Each rung led up the hierarchy. Then individual aspirations and company needs began to evolve. Old ladders became largely inaccessible. Some rungs disappeared, and the space between others shifted from steps to leaps. Today's marketplace demands an agile workforce. Organizational structures have become fluid and flexible. As a result, career mobility has emerged as essential for individuals at all levels. No longer is mobility just about physical movement or assuming the greater responsibilities that come with a promotion.

Career mobility today is about flexibility and agility. It is a rich mix of experiences, roles, assignments, and options. Savvy careerists have come to appreciate the ability and willingness to explore multiple opportunities and experiences. To succeed in a rapidly changing environment employees need to recognize when new opportunities for growth emerge and to be ready with options when others fade or change. Like the navigation systems we rely on to reroute our travels based on unexpected traffic congestion, shortcut options and last-minute detours, a career mobility mindset will provide a foundation for resilience in a changing world of work.

This session will open a new lens for managers and employees who want to make the most of the new career landscape.

Objectives:
  • Explore the business case for the new lens on career mobility.
  • Understand the opportunities available in organizations other than the traditional vertical move.
  • Practice four ways to do an "Enrichment Workout!"


About Dr. Beverly Kaye

Dr. Beverly Kaye is an internationally recognized authority on career issues and on retention and engagement in the workplace. She was recently honored with the “Distinguished Contribution” award by the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) for her groundbreaking and continued impact on workplace learning over the past three decades.

As founder and Co-CEO of Career Systems International and a bestselling author on workplace performance, Dr. Kaye and her team have worked with a host of organizations to establish cutting-edge, award-winning talent development solutions. Her first book, Up Is Not the Only Way, foresaw the effects that leaner, flatter organizations would have on individual careers and the subsequent need for workers to take charge of their own careers. She also developed learning solutions and systems for managers and employees to work together to help employees achieve their developmental goals. With the fourth edition of a bestseller she coauthored, Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em: Getting Good People to Stay (Berrett-Koehler 2008), Bev addressed one of the most pressing workplace problems of the 21st century: retaining and engaging employees. In her follow-up companion best seller, Love It, Don’t Leave It: 26 Ways to Get What You Want At Work (Berrett-Koehler, 2003), she shows employees how they can find greater satisfaction in their current work lives.

Bev is a Jersey Girl but has been living in the LA area for almost 40 years. (Still a Jersey girl!) She’s been married for 38 years to her ex – rocket scientist husband, Barry, and is mom to a grown-up daughter, Lindsey, and a grown-up dog, Roxy. She enjoys swimming laps in the summer, skiing in the winter, and breaking bread with friends all year long.
