Career Plans and Employee Expectations

Learning objectives

If needed, set appropriate expectations with employees regarding their career plans

Course overview

Everyone creates desires and expectations for their career. We think about where we want to be and what we want to do. Although we may not have a complete plan, we usually have a general sense of direction, and do a pretty good job of considering our skills and expertise when planning a move. Yet sometimes we get off track. It's not uncommon for a person to desire a career move that's unattainable, whether it's due to the wrong skill set, inexperience, or a lack of expertise. Yet the person still wants to make the move. Unfortunately, if an employee is focused on a role or position that is out of reach, frustration can set in, often leading to a decrease in engagement and performance. This course will help you manage expectations regarding career moves, and teach you how to be proactive to refocus an employee in the right way, ensuring the person continues to be engaged and contributes to the company. By completing this course, you will know how, if needed, to set appropriate expectations with employees regarding their career plans. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute).
