Leadership and Business Roadmap – April 2023
“Your career is a journey, not a destination.
It's about the skills you develop,
the opportunities you seize,
and the impact you make along the way.”
WELCOME TO APRIL!
Since the covid-19 pandemic took hold of our lives and how—and where—we work, it’s become apparent that employee satisfaction is now more important than ever. We’ve all experienced The Great Resignation and Quiet Quitting firsthand, and both have shown us that employees need to feel engaged in their roles in order to want to remain working within their current organizations. One way to retain top performers is to encourage—and assist with—career pathing, that is, charting a course for the roles they see themselves taking on within your organization as their careers grow and develop.
And as leaders, how can we help employees navigate this process?
Sometimes it’s as simple as having a candid conversation and asking a few pointed questions. What do you see yourself doing a year from now? Or in 3 years? What’s something you’d like the opportunity to work on more? What skills would you like to develop that would advance your career?
As you explore this month’s new releases and our existing robust library of Leadership and Business courses, books, audiobooks, and book summaries, I invite you to think about how you will leverage them to map out your professional development goals or help your employees chart theirs.
Our commitment to providing valuable resources for business professionals never stops. Every month, we're thrilled to unveil a fresh batch of courses that focus on popular business skills. Don't miss out on the latest additions to our collection—take a look and discover new ways to enhance your professional toolkit!
