Manager as a career coach

Fifty percent of employees will look for interesting or meaningful work in their next job. Not a promotion, or their manager’s job; not large financial rewards, but a role that works for them. Although most understand that they need to own their career, it is up to the organisation to be clear on its business strategy and the skill sets needed. Managers play a critical role as enablers of career mobility. They have the practical responsibility for aligning employees’ aspirations to the changing demands of the business. Managers are the link in helping individuals understand what he or she does well and what they need to do to adapt. It is therefore critical for managers to be fully equipped to have meaningful career conversations.
