How to Have a Career Development Discussion With Your Boss

  • Friday, December 10, 2021
  • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Zoom Meeting


Registration is closed

You are responsible for your own career development, not your employer nor your supervisor; therefore, you need to drive the process.  A career development discussion is not just about improving your performance for the next year or setting goals for your current position.  It’s about planning for the future, beyond your current position.  The purpose of having a career development discussion with your boss is to help you grow and develop to your optimal capability over time.  Some people are uncomfortable with this because they only want to talk with their bosses about their current position. 

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • prepare for the career development meeting
  • initiate the discussion with your boss, learn what to ask
  • close out the discussion with a plan.
