Summary

Over and over, managers hear employees asking, "Do I have a future here?" Many managers and leaders struggle with the fact that they simply cannot deliver vertical moves or promotions, for every employee who wants, or even deserves that option.

Up Is Not the Only Way, introduces the concept of flexibility and agility and the multiple ways employees can grow, learn, and build a career, as the way to solve the problems of immobility, and retention. Managers need the tools for building rich dialogue about career mobility, and dynamic workplaces that demand resilient talent at all levels. The key is communicating effectively and comfortably around the topic of career options, that span a spectrum of employee engagement. From those who are ready and want to move, to those who are satisfied to stay right where they are, and even for those who have no idea what the next opportunity might be, this audiobook provides a way through these tough conversations. Up Is Not the Only Way, distills the solutions to complex issues involving engagement and retention, in a simple and practical way.

Enjoyable read

Purely personal opinion, I felt the reader was slightly over enthusiastic and therefore it felt a bit patronising in places.
It was helpful to understand that people have ingrained views on what careers should look like, I've always considered all options in my own career and didn't realise people could be so hamstrung. Some great messages here

Great read for HR, Leaders & Employees

This book has great content regarding career mobility. Promotions are only one path in the array of possibilities when it comes to steps in a person's career matrix. The career experiences they discuss are: enrichment, exploratory, lateral, realignment, vertical and relocation. There are plenty of stories and examples provided in the book that illustrate these ideas.There are also end of the chapter "Think about it" questions that provide a great framework for reviewing and reflecting on the chapter's content. The book opened my eyes to new possibilities and new opportunities.
