We make it way more difficult than it needs to be, don’t we? It’s a universally accepted tenet that our ability and willingness to develop our people may be the most important investment in time and resources we have. And our employees agree…they are literally craving more development, so why do we consistently fall short?

Join me for a conversation with Julie Winkle-Giulioni, author of the international best-seller, “Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go.” Jules and I talk about the different dynamics in training and development that continue to develop in a pandemic world. Is the focus still on promotions and “the climb” up the ladder? What questions should you be asking? Are you curious with your people, do you stress the importance of communication?

Authentic leadership and genuine conversations are needed now more than ever with a virtual workforce and personal security waning. Zoom, GoToMeeting, Skype, et al have brought us into the homes of our employees, but may be robbing us of the non-verbal cues we rely on when we communicate.

Take a listen, subscribe to the podcast (and this ol’ blog) and meet some of the amazing people behind the curtain of Human Resources.
