Course Overview

Many loyal employees will stay with an organisation for years, however,  even the best employees can let their effectiveness start to stagnate. Without giving these people new roles, providing them feedback, developing new responsibilities, or training them to take on new skills, organisations are leaving these valuable employee-resources untapped.

Employee development is vital for succession planning. A succession planning strategy will ensure that corporate knowledge is maintained within the organisation and that new leaders emerge with the necessary skills and experience.

During How to Develop Your People’s Skills, you will learn how to effectively develop the skills of your current team members, including how to get them to define their career goals and outcomes. You’ll also learn how to empower one-on-one conversations about their ongoing development, opportunities for enrichment training and how to work with your people to create individual development career plans.
