The time-honored tradition of defining career development exclusively in terms of promotions, moves, and title changes is dead. What lives on, however, are unrealistic expectations from this outdated mindset, leaving employees disengaged, managers disempowered, and organizations disadvantaged as they struggle to retain talent. The time has come to finally shed yesterday’s limited view of career development and find ways to enable the growth people and organizations need today.

The good news is that beyond, between, and besides the climb up the corporate ladder, there are countless other ways that employees want to grow. This session focuses an easy-to-apply, research-based multidimensional career framework. This updated framework features seven alternatives to promotions — contribution, competence, connection, confidence, challenge, contentment, and choice — all of which offer powerful ways to grow that, unlike promotions, are completely within a manager’s control.

By attending this session, you’ll expand how you define career development and help others do the same thing as they move beyond old 1- and 2-dimensional views to embrace a possibility-filled 7-dimensional approach to career development.


- Explore the causes and implications of today's most confounding career development disconnect

- Discover seven viable and valuable alternatives to growth beyond promotions/positions

- Identify your own personal interests and priority development dimensions

- Generate creative and cost-effective development experiences that help employees address development dimensions of interest
