 Development that is meaningful to you can increase your engagement and help you achieve your goals.

 Development is: 

Employee-owned You own your development goal! It should be meaningful to you and the work you do.
A growth-mindset We learn and grow our entire lives.
Empowering It gives you the chance to seek new learnings.
A professional goal It is focused on becoming better every day, moving care for our patients forward.
Purposeful It is the result of reflection and discussion between an employee and leader about where you can grow in the coming year.


 There are many ways to continue to develop!

Leaders – this is a tool for you to help guide development on your team.






As a leader, you have a unique role in development.  Not only is your development important; you also play a role in supporting the development of your employees. We understand our leaders might struggle to find time to focus on their employee’s development. However, opportunities to develop exist in the work you and your team do every day.


Ongoing Conversations Development is continuous. Leaders can support development by engaging their employees in ongoing conversations.
Identify Opportunities Use the 70/20/10 model to help your employees identify on-the-job learning and development opportunities. Help connect them to others for networking.
Help Set a Goal Help your employee identify their strengths and areas of opportunity. Help them sort through what they’re passionate about and what they feel their purpose is.
Encourage & Empower Encourage and empower your employees. Find ways an employee can leverage a strength to advance his/her development.
Provide Resources Share resources with your team on a regular basis: articles, podcasts, opportunities for collaboration.
Remove Barriers Removing barriers is an important part of a leader’s role when it comes to employee development. Identify what is getting in the way and work with your employee to find solutions to move forward.
