ACTIVITY: Growth & Development Conversation Starters


The most effective way to improve growth and development is to simply begin with candid conversations about it with team members. 

Consider these conversation starters: 

  • Related to your career, where would you like to be three years from now? One year from now? 
  • What training and development do you think you need to accomplish that?
  • What experiences do you need to have to get there? 
  • Who would it be helpful for you to know as you’re on that path? 
  • How do you like to learn? Books? eLearning? Live training? Mentorships? Job shadowing? 
  • Are there specific things you think I can help you with this year related to your growth and development?
