Check In On Development Plans Before It’s Too Late

It’s well into November and time to have discussions about your direct reports’ development plans.  Even if you have been doing quarterly updates, this is the perfect time to check in to see how close they are to achieving their 2010 development plans.

Everyone wants to feel successful relative to their personal development and growth.  If it looks like a direct report may come up short on their development goals, see if there are some short term wins that could be achieved before the end of the year even if the ultimate goal is not accomplished.  You may also want to consider allowing some extra time or resources to allow the direct report to achieve success.

Imagine how a direct report will go to the wall for you when you’ve made an extra effort in helping them achieve a personal goal.

Empower the success of your direct reports by removing obstacles or deploying resources relative to their development goals.
