    Career conversations are now a must more than any other time in our history. When we think about McKinsey's latest research showing 41% of people are actually leaving due to a lack of career development and advancement. Coaching career conversations is about coaching and developing talent for the present and future. We need to find out what people want to do, what motivates them, what they like, what they potentially dislike. We need to have these conversations proactively not reactively.

    We all know that we're busy and we have many things to do, yet often what comes at the expense of this is our conversations with our people.

Let's just assume they don't have great conversations, but they have the conversations nonetheless. This would still lead to greater talent development and retention versus doing nothing. Having coaching career conversations is about asking people what motivates them, finding their motivation, and helping them get to an ideal destination of their liking, not just simply what the boss or the organization wants or expects.
