Person-Centred Career Conversations – for team leaders (Cohort 11)


This session is suitable for all team leaders (clinical and non-clinical) across the North East and North Cumbria health and care system. If you have any queries about your eligibility to attend, please get in touch


Are you a leader or line manager working in health and care? Do you have staff with underutilised skills and experience, who would benefit from being re-energised in their own development? Perhaps they’ve reached the mid-point in their career, and aren’t sure what’s next? 

According to Manpower Group, the impact of having a career conversation with an individual can be huge:

  • 76% say they feel more engaged in their work
  • 75% say they are happier in the work they do
  • 73% say they are more likely to stay with their employer

What is a ‘career conversation’?

A career conversation is not a performance review or appraisal – it’s an honest, open discussion between employee and manager which supports the employee in developing their goals and plans.

The session will cover:

  • Why focus on career conversations
  • Meeting individual needs with career conversations
  • 3 Key Skills for any career conversation
  • Preparing effectively using a conversation framework
  • Practice using real life scenarios

In having career conversations with staff, leaders and line managers can begin to understand the work and life challenges individuals face, support their overall wellbeing, and can help to give individuals new purpose and feel a stronger sense of belonging. Staff can feel re-energised and re-engaged, ultimately improving patient/service user care.

The session will take place via Microsoft Teams, and a link will be emailed to registered delegates a few days in advance.
