Julie Winkle Giulioni – Inc.’s Top 100 Leadership Speakers and Author of Promotions Are So Yesterday: Redefine Career Development. Help Employees Thrive     

The closer you get to the top, the fewer opportunities there are.
So, if people continue to define their career development by a
promotion, we have a mathematical impossibility. No wonder
there is dissatisfaction and disengagement.

Julie Winkle Giulioni is a champion for workplace growth and development and helps leaders optimize talent and potential within their organizations with consulting, keynote speeches, and training. Julie is the co-author of the international bestseller Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations Organizations Need and Employees Want. She is a regular columnist for Training Industry magazine and SmartBrief and contributes articles on leadership, career development, and workplace trends to publications including The Economist. Named by Inc. magazine as a Top 100 Leadership Speaker, Julie’s in-person and virtual keynotes and presentations offer fresh, inspiring, yet actionable strategies for leaders who are interested in their own growth as well as supporting the growth of others. Her firm, DesignArounds, creates and offers training to organizations worldwide and has earned praise and awards from Human Resource Executive magazine’s Top Ten Training Products, New York Film Festival, Brandon Hall, and Global HR Excellence Council. The time-honored tradition of defining career development exclusively in terms of promotions, moves, and title changes is dead. This outdated mindset leaves employees disengaged, managers disempowered, and organizations disadvantaged as they struggle to retain talent. Promotions Are So Yesterday focuses on the importance of career development through an easy-to-apply, research-based multidimensional career framework.

have them cost as little as possible.
