As a Leadership Coach, I enjoy my work with business people who are eager to improve how they lead and how they get results at work. I know the desire for Coaching is often created when people receive honest performance feedback or are engaged in an internal development planning process. Therefore, why would I say that career planning programs are best kept to oneself, when they often bring me new clients?
Let me distinguish between performance development and career development. Most internally-driven programs focus on ways to make you more valuable to the company.
