The Four Conversations
Ready to improve the engagement, performance, readiness, and bench strength of your team?
You know why developing your people is important. The Three Kingdoms Program is the HOW!
In this third and final installment of the Three Kingdoms, you'll learn how the do's and don'ts for conducting conversations that guide and support your employees through the development process. In particular, we'll look at the:
Engage Conversation: You'll broach the subject with your employee and gain agreement to the process.
Align Conversation: You'll discuss your employee's aspirations, reflections, and self-assessment, explore the possibilities, and define some high-level development goals.
Plan Conversation: You'll work your way towards specific development targets, then brainstorm milestones, tasks, resources, and timeframes to flesh out the game plan.
Check-In Conversations: By following up frequently--both informally and formally--you'll create a culture that encourages development as a business priority.
