I like where I’m at and want to stay here

So you (or your employee) have found the right fit. You are happy where you are. You have the skills and enjoy what you do. You do not have interest in management. And you feel like this is a great place to work the longevity of your career until retirement.

Great, but how do you stay relevant and excited, and how does your boss ensure you feel valued?

It is to be commended, for those of you who work a career. In fact it is almost a novelty now days. Not all employees seek leadership positions or even have a career path with an upward trajectory. Some of the most valuable employees have determined exactly what they want to be doing, have developed the skills and aptitude necessary to succeed in the position, and are content with the status quo.

So if there are positives, what are the negatives?

In some cases continuing the same job may subconsciously may cause complacency. It also can be easy to disengage with other areas and employees in the company that may be growing. It may also be difficult for your boss to provide you with a feeling of value because of the continued investment into growth and new leadership in other employees.

The World’s commerce is growing at a never ending pace. Many CEO’s, HR departments and managers perpetually sit in a state of looking for new talent due to increased growth. There are still yet some companies that have a product or service that demands a talent pool and skill set that have been set for some time. And instead of the need for creating a new culture, it is important that these CEO’s, HR departments and managers keep their existing talent pool satisfied and engaged. So, what kind of development would be useful to these skilled individuals?

No Need for Continued Training? What can you do to stay engaged?

There is always room for personal growth and generally this is something everyone can find value in because it affects the work and home life.  By offering varied tools and thought provoking team workshops or _____ can keep these employees engaged in the group and inspired by growth.

Here are a few examples for beneficial tools:

  • Defining Personal Purpose and Setting Goals
  • Coping & Stress
  • Time Mastery
  • DiSC Behavioral Assessment

Employees; do not forget you are a valued member of the team, and Employers; do not forget to show these employees the love and keep them engaged beyond their daily tasks.
