LinkedIn Career Explorer – Helping Your A-Players to Visualize their Future (with or without you)

LinkedIn Career Explorer – Helping Your A-Players to Visualize their Future (with or without you)

Focus on PeopleLinkedIn is introducing its Career Explorer system (initially just to high school students, soon to everyone) that allows people to map out their next career move – and it likely won’t be inside your company. The economy is still anemic (and the psychology of many A-players still conservative). But now is the time to make sure that your A-player employees see a concrete path to more responsibility, interesting challenges, and more money. This does not mean you have to pay people more today. It means that you have to demonstrate that you’re thinking about your best people and figuring out ways that they can learn and grow in their careers by staying with your company. As I wrote in How to Hire A-Players www.howtohireaplayers.com too many executives take their best people for granted because they are good. Over the long haul, leadership means investing in your strongest people. Make sure they are with you by investing your time and thinking with them about the next step in their careers.

BTW, here is an article that outlines the new LinkedIn offering and its potential future impact on leading and keeping A-players http://bit.ly/cAE7Vd
