Facilitated by Susan Thomson, ActionCOACH

Presentation Description

Ever get the unexpected call that one of your top people is leaving? Someone you had big plans for? Hint: It’s probably not about the money. Or the hours. They’ve stopped learning, and with that they’ve stopped growing. Don’t just take them through a canned professional development process—take them through a personal and professional alignment that helps you both understand their values, motivations and where they’d like to play a role. The purpose of the roundtable is to share best practices in coaching employees to re-engage and be excited to participate over the long term.  

Attendees will:

• Understand the importance of tying personal values to organizational plans and development
• Learn a proven approach that can be used in succession planning and career planning
• Be able to walk a high potential employee through their own roadmap—including both strengths and self-sabotaging behaviors
