Being open about career goals and aspirations

When I talk to team members about career goals and aspirations, I make it clear that I’m here to support them in achieving their goals. I’m also up front in acknowledging that this may mean growing into a new role on the team, moving to a new role in the company, or even finding a new opportunity outside of the company. This last one usually gets me a raised eyebrow or a question along the lines of, “are you trying to get rid of me?” 🤔
