As a manager, it’s your responsibility to guide your team through their daily tasks and help guide your team’s individual career goals. That can be more difficult than it sounds because what you might assume an employee wants from their career may differ from what they want. That’s why we developed this career plan template. The template can guide a 1:1 or be filled out individually by a manager to help track an employee’s goals, values, and more.
