Giving the Gift of a Career: A roadmap for individually focused staff development
By Bill Hermann
Staff development as a process is more art than science. Many of us think of our career as a lifelong quest that may or may not always be satisfying or even rewarding. There may be fits and starts, ups and downs — it all varies by individual. Giving the Gift of a Career: A roadmap for individually focused staff development delves into the most frequent hurdles for advisors and leaders who want to create a well-defined, inviting environment that encourages self-satisfaction for individuals working in a team environment and growth opportunities for the organization as a whole. These ideas will be useful to anyone on their career journey: staff members who are looking for the guides and mentors who will help them succeed, advisors and leaders who want engaged and productive individuals on their teams, and organizations that believe staff retention and engagement will improve their long-term sustainability. They’ll also work whether your organization works remotely some, or all, of the time.
