🎯 Team Member Growth Plans


🎯 Employee Growth Plans

Author(s): Christian Scott & Blake Shalem

In our organization, we are committed to creating an environment where our staff will be able to achieve both their personal and professional goals. These growth plans are the first step to achieving that. We first have new staff fill out the entire growth plan with exception to any Pink boxes (for the People Manager to fill in) to understand who they are, what their values are the most important to them, what types of aspirations they have and what their expectations are for their professional growth. At the end of this page is the introduction guide we like to provide staff so the understand the importance of their growth plan. Once a staff member completes their growth plan we then fill in the manager notes to provide helpful and productive feedback. We will usually provide each staff member a suggested skill tree to help provide them direction on what skills and expertise to invest their time into. At the end we setup a an hour meeting to discuss the growth plan for each staff member, each quarter the or year the growth plan can then be adjusted and reviewed via the same process on a continuous basis.

💬 Employee Growth Chart Introduction Guide

Growth charts are one of the essential tools we utilize to build and adjust our personal and professional development goals, so we can clearly see our progress and ensure growth. This guide includes information and tips for outlining our thoughts and plans so we can think big.

Why is my Growth Chart important?

One of the core values of our firm is continuous growth and progression. We believe it is important to constantly challenge ourselves, fail, learn and try again with adjustments. It’s also very rewarding to look back on your goals and plans to see everything you have achieved. “Remember when you wished for what you have now.” We plan to revisit everyone’s growth chart and adjust as necessary semi-annually.

  • Personal Growth
    • Values
    • Family
    • Life Goals
  • Professional Growth
    • Skills (Hard and Soft)
    • Career Path

What’s the point?

Getting thoughts out of our heads and on paper allows us to organize and simplify our goals for clearer focus. This also ensures we are all on the same page in terms of our team member’s current skill sets, plans, strengths, and weaknesses.
