 What's development got to do with it?

For many, this time of year is the annual look back at how you did and look forward to what you want to do. Whether your company engages in formal or informal annual reviews, many of us dislike the process.

One component of this time honored business tradition is setting development goals. For many managers, this is an area they avoid - either not knowing how to coach an employee or because there aren't any incentives for employees to achieve development goals. So these goals tend to become nothing - the employee doesn't grow, the manager is frustrated, and the employee leaves for other opportunities.

I'd like to challenge you this year to think differently about development goals.
