I’ve seen this fail so many times I can’t even begin to count them all. Mostly where they fail is that the career path is designed by someone who got where they are by taking path “A”, and so they design the same path for everyone else to follow. This is short-sighted for two reasons:?1. Not everyone is you. Not everyone wants to do the same things you have done or do now. (Over time those things you did 10-15 years ago may not even be relevant.)?2. That path winds to your job, so unless you are leaving, it has a dead-end built into it. Dead-ends cause retention problems.
So many organizations are looking for the next piece of tech that will improve their workflows and make their team more efficient when they could easily get the same boost, or more, by training their people to use the tech they already own.
Don’t assume everyone hears you the first time. It’s pretty unlikely.
