Annual Performance Review
We continue our conversations around getting ready for annual performance reviews in our Coaching Café this week. Over the past few weeks, we’ve looked at key tips. Furthermore, a framework to set those conversations up for success. In addition, how to manage the trickier conversations. And also the performance development plan.
This week we focussed on having meaningful career conversations. And we welcome back our Resident HR specialist Paula Jones-Hunt and career expert and author Veronica Millen. Specifically, to share their years of experience around coaching and career conversations.
Why start a career conversation?
There are a range of reasons that people might want to engage in career conversations.
Often people think of career planning as having to climb a corporate ladder. Alternatively, getting that next big promotion. This might be accurate for some people. But for others, depending on your stage of life or career, perhaps you are ready for a career change? Or transitioning into retirement? Alternatively moving into a role or industry that will give you better job satisfaction? Not to mention more family friendly hours? There may be a range of different reasons for different people.
Importantly, if your team member comes to you to engage in a career conversation, it’s great to be ready to having a coaching conversation.
Understanding ‘career sweet’ spots
In the webinar, Veronica talks about career sweet spots. Furthermore, how to find out what your career sweet spot might be. The concept is featured in her new book ‘Career Agility’.
She explains that your career sweet spot is where your skills, interests and needs meet. Importantly, when you find the role that meets the needs of all three areas you have found your career sweet spot.
