Leading or Lagging: Career Conversations and the Development Plan Checklist

In People Development

From an interview with Bridget Beattie, Executive Vice President Asia Pacific Middle East at Right Management, L&D Professional  highlights the need for employers to balance the lead indicators of career development conversations with the lag indicators of performance reviews:

It’s got to be all about the lead indicators rather than the lag indicators … Performance reviews are a lag indicator because it’s too late when they happen. But career conversations are a lead indicator, and the things that really drive engagement are lead indicators.

The Experience Driven Development team has made an Individual Development Plan Checklist available which helps bring together these career and performance conversations.
