Working on the System
People are easy to see. Systems are hard to see. On top of that, most organizations have a strong focus on individual performance—in job descriptions, assignments, evaluations. It is easy to overlook the enormous impact the system can have on people’s ability to do good work. I’ll share some ideas on visualizing the system…so you can start working on it. I’ll open it up so you can share what you’ve done to improve the system.

Career Development Conversations
Sometimes, people equate career growth with better assignments and promotions. However, there isn’t an infinite supply of either of those. So how do you support development for everyone—not just those who qualify for a promotion? By facilitating reflection and helping people connect with what matters to them. I’ll share some ideas, and, of course, answer questions.
I’ll share some ideas, then open it up for your questions.
