Today’s employees expect continuous learning and career growth. If they don’t receive the training they seek, they leave and their firms suffer. Organizational development consultants Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni show managers how to prioritize their staff members’ career development. The authors provide useful insights and offer lists of potential questions managers can ask to lead their employees through conversations based on “hindsight, foresight and insight.” Even though the book’s structure is choppy and the text relies on bulleted lists that hinder the flow, getAbstract recommends this concise manual. Managers and human resources professionals will find it helpful, as will those who are nurturing their own careers.
