Career Advantage

Boost employee engagement and retention through powerful career conversations

Unlock the potential of your managers and elevate your company's employee retention and productivity with Career Advantage - the management training program designed to transform the way managers approach career growth conversations.

The Problem:

For ages we’ve known career opportunities are a top driver of engagement. Yet despite this importance, career conversations are one of the most elusive and underused skills in management today.

  • Career Conversations are hard.
  • Discussions happen annually, if at all.
  • Managers are waiting for the perfect plan to get started.
  • If managers don't know what's going on with their teams, they can't act.

The Avenue Solution:

  • Master Career Conversations
  • Empower Managers with Personal Insight
  • Break Through Resistance & Stalled Growth
