Summary

Study after study confirms that career development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving retention, engagement, productivity, and results. Nevertheless, it’s frequently back-burnered. When asked why, managers say the number-one reason is that they just don’t have time - for the meetings, the forms, the administrative hoops. But there’s a better way.

Craptastic

Hope you enjoy listening to people read PowerPoint slides! Because that's all this "book" is. The reader also sounds slightly condescending. Or maybe that's how the text is written.

agony to listen to. a different narrator needed.

this narrator was very hard to listen to.

I didn't buy into this..... not believable. I did not feel that I learned anything. a lit of basic generalities and Made up acronyms.

I'm on the fence on this one!

Where does Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'm on the fence on this one! The ideas are nice but overall this book is did not moved me like other audiobooks that I listen to.

This is the first time I've listened to a book of this kind (management) so it's a bit interesting. But the narrator is really dry. I can easily mistake it to a machine trying to read a book.

Why is this worth the buy?
This is recommended in our company so I listened to it. This is important to our CEO so I have to read it and sort of get in his mind on how he sees professional growth.

I found gems here like:
Hindsight, foresight, and insight conversations. I like the tern mentworking and I found it really practical.

How could the performance have been better?

I think they have to re-record this book. They have to change the robot... sorry the narrator in this book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Hindsight, foresight, and insight conversations. I like the tern mentworking and I found it really practical.

easy read - lots of ideas

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

a good compilation of ideas based around a shift in mindset around how we see employees.
