This session sheds a much needed light on specifically what managers can do – within the time-starved, priority-rich, pressure-cooker environment in which they operate – to support employees’ careers. And it comes down to this: engage in short, ongoing conversations with employees about their career options, needs, and passions. It’s really that simple... and that complex.
Bev & Julie will utilize research from her new book to demystify the current complexity surrounding the importance of the career conversation.
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.
