Yet, despite the importance of career development, managers too frequently can’t find the time to make it happen. Every day, employees who believe that their careers are not getting the attention they deserve make the decision to disengage – resigning to pursue other opportunities or (even more dangerous) staying and withdrawing their engagement, motivation, and enthusiasm for the work.
So, what’s a manager to do? Plenty…and it may be easier than you expect. Quality career development boils down to quality conversations. Improve the conversation and career development improves….along with job satisfaction, retention, and results.
Dr. Beverly Kaye will show you just how simple it can be and how leaders can build career development into everyday work life – where it belongs. Practical tips, research-based recommendations, and verbal skills are offered to make career development a lot easier and more effective. This will be an interactive dialogue with Bev and your fellow HR colleagues.

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.
