The book addresses the new realities of the 21st century workplace, delivering a highly accessible toolkit. The authors argue that the traditional annual career development conversation is passé and should be replaced by multiple, shorter and more relevant conversations within the context of the day-to-day workflow. Building on the ideas introduced by Doug Connant and Mette Norgaard in Touchpoints, Help them Grow guides managers into this new system in several ways: first, by recognizing the opportunities for dialog when they occur during the normal course of business; and second through a set of tools and techniques to structure conversations that foster worker growth.
The key is to frame these conversations correctly. Help them Grow offers a simple yet compelling formula: insight lies at the intersection of hindsight and foresight. Kaye and Giulioni teach managers to notice critical opportunities for worker self-awareness through reinterpretation of past events and experience. True insight comes by overlaying an enlightened understanding of the past with the anticipation of the dreams and possibilities of tomorrow.
Help them Grow dispels outdated myths of 20th century career development, replacing them with strategies more relevant to the modern workforce--jettisoning a one-dimensional traditional career ladder and substituting a climbing wall, a powerful and nuanced metaphor that expands rather than limits the spectrum of possible conversations.
The book is filled with mind-enriching gems and is a quick and easy read. Anyone who invests a mere two hours with this book will be rewarded by a new framework for career development, leading to greater worker productivity, satisfaction, growth and retention. This is a compelling ROI.
If you want some very useful tips on how to do this ...
The nitty-gritty of this is that we know more today about what is effective and what is not effective when it comes to helping people grow and blossom. All we have to do is find the information, consider how to use it, and then do it ... fortunately, this easy-to-read book does most of the work for you.

I'm so glad I did--what a wonderful book. I look back and realize I've benefited from exactly the kind of simple, purposeful and powerful conversations and interactions Beverly teaches us to be having. A lot of time and effort could be saved by skipping all the strategic planning, budgeting, implementation and management of yet another complex iteration of development programs. I already have started to follow the simple, easy, effective and very natural interactions Beverly discusses--and they are working beautifully.
On an outing recently with a friend, her young son was concerned about what people were thinking when they saw him get confused and have a minor mishap. I overheard my friend quietly say, "Most of the time, most of the people around you are thinking about themselves, not about you." I was struck by that insight and decided to start trying to think about others more. Beverly's guidance leads me to the next natural step of conversations and interactions that "help others grow".
Finally, the greatest benefit of all may be the way this helps me grow myself, by more effectively growing others.
My only regret--I succumbed to buying this for my beloved Kindle, and now I must also get a printed copy to hilite, dog-ear, underline and circle.
