Promega takes a relational approach to employee development that uses a series of conversations to recognize employee strengths and encourage growth based on employee interests. Since growth starts from the inside, we have shifted from the more standard manager-driven review process to one that starts with the employee. These conversations facilitate individual development plans, personalized growth goals and listening sessions to understand what our talent needs to keep them with Promega.
Leadership Training and Employee Development
All Promega employees have access to development services including talent management resources, personality/leadership assessments, coaching and consulting. Courses available either to managers or to all employees include:
- Coaching for Leaders
- DiSC personal assessment and communication classes
- Transformational Leadership
- Leadership Conversations
- Influence Without Authority
- Conflict Management
All Promega managers have also been invited to join a new interview training to learn about our recruitment philosophy, review recruitment best practices, and dive deeper into our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as it relates to recruitment.
I am so grateful for this mind-bending experience. I made “To Do” notes to myself during the progression of the day-long event, and followed through with expanded attitudes and directed actions, built upon the course’s concepts. I feel I’ve been changed for the better in many wonderful ways.
