The Art of Job Mixology
Make Development Happen When Time, Ideas or Resources are Scarce
Our organizations are flatter than ever, which means fewer opportunities for promotion. So how do you keep your best people when they believe the only way to grow in their careers is to quit…often taking team morale, productivity and engagement with them?
Audiences of senior leaders and management teams will learn how to:
Make it easy for all managers and leaders to actively engage in talent development efforts
Unlock more creative and strategic job-related development opportunities for employees
Create an ongoing development process that fosters a culture of inclusion along the way
Kick Your Rut!
You CAN Fall in Love
with Your Job Again!
To leave or not to leave? That’s the question many employees are asking themselves all too often. They face a choice between staying…but getting stuck (or worse, checking out), or giving up and quitting.
But there’s another option. In the space between loving a job and leaving it, there’s job mixology: uncovering, creating and maximizing more opportunities for development right where they are.
Audiences of workplace professionals within organizations or as part of professional associations will learn how to:
Adopt an “intrapreneurial” mindset that accelerates professional growth
Uncover multiple, often hidden, development opportunities
Carve out more time for development
Build a broader network of champions for their efforts
Use Your Talent Development Process to Increase Inclusion
While diversity remains an important focus for HR professionals, more organizations recognize that fostering inclusion can be a more elusive goal. Making inclusive behaviors the norm, however, is difficult to compel.
It’s time to apply a fresh lens to the talent development process, one that moves beyond simply adding diversity- and/or inclusion-related goals to leaders’ development plans.
Senior leaders, HR/Talent Development professionals, and those in Diversity & Inclusion-related roles will learn how to:
Demystify the important difference between a D&I goal and a D&I focus
Incorporate inclusiveness into existing talent development processes seamlessly
Motivate employees to build broader, more diverse support networks to achieve their development goals
