    Beverly Kaye Explains How to Have Career Conversations Employees Want 

    Excerpted from their soon to be published book, Help them Grow or Watch Them Go, Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni help managers rethink career development through the human act of conversation. Their advice–don’t dwell on meticulous documentation; careers are developed one conversation at a time, over time. We at Career Collaborators agree, and we advocate building peer career communities to extend those conversations and build even more robust career conversations.

    Tough Love From the CEO of MKTG, Inc to Gen Y Employees 

    CEO of a top-notch marketing services agency talks about authenticity in brands and in character traits that will truly make employees special.  Charlie Horsey says, ” Kids love authenticity in brands. They can tell what’s real, and what’s put on. They need to recognize their authentic best in themselves and admire it in others. To that end, we’ve started a rewards program, and every quarter, our people vote on who they think most deserves to be rewarded for their service. Eight people are then rewarded with trips, and experiences that matter to them. We believe this peer-to-peer acknowledgement puts the focus on truly deserving employees. Additionally, the experiences they are afforded as a result of our rewards program will enrich their lives and ultimately make them better employees.” http://tinyurl.com/7pv64f6

    Gen Y employees in organizations would also value peer support for broader career conversations.  We think that creating Career Collaborators Circles can provide that additional support.  Learn more at http://www.careercollaborators.com

    What is a “career woman” and do you want to be one? 

    Anne-Marie Slaughter’s recent article in the Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2012/07/why-women-still-can-8217-t-have-it-all/9020/ continues to create conversations around the topic of career women in the workplace. Ruth Marcus (Washington Post) in another commentary on Slaughter’s article, quotes Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, Sheryl Sandberg, who advises women in the workplace to “put your foot on that gas pedal and keep it there until the day you have to make a decision and then, make a decision…That’s the only way, when that day comes, you’ll even have a decision to make.” In other words, there is lots of buzz about the right choices and behaviors, their implications and the consequences of career decisions for women in today’s workplace, but what is right for you? If Slaughter’s “sensible policy prescriptions” or Sandberg’s “push hard” advice leave you with more questions than answers, you might want to reach out to your network of peers, friend and colleagues who can help you reflect upon your assumptions and think proactively about your career choices–reach out (or form your own) peer career community and ask the questions that are important to you.

    We are building peer career communities 

    Our blog is about careers. We want to have a dialogue about questions such as:

    • What do people think about when they think about “my career”?
    • What is career development?
    • How important are collaboration and connection to career development?
    • How can organizations support employees’ career exploration?
    • How does employee career development lead to an organization’s need for finding the right people to perform the right roles at the right time?

    We are Career Collaborators® (www.careercollaborators.com) and we have lots of ideas to share with our readers. We want to engage and connect with you. Tell us what you think, and become a part of this online Career Community.
