"What's in it for me?"
That's the question you should be answering for your employees when you make requests of them. That's being a career agent.
When you make requests, give feedback or coach an employee, you need buy-in from them. They need to know that what they're getting from their manager is going to help them in their career.
In our first episode, Kris and I will be answering questions like:
- What is a career agent?
- What steps do managers need to take to become great career agents?
- Why should you help employees grow and be more valuable in the talent marketplace?
- How will being a great career agent benefit my team and organization?
- What are the hardest parts of becoming a great career agent?
