<ping>! (Lotus Notes informs me of a new unread email)

Me: I have time to read one more.

<opens email>

Email: Congratulations! As a top performer, you have been selected by the Talent Management Group (Me: Who?) to attend an invitation-only workshop called 'Influence Skills for the Enterprise'. This is part of our corporate focus on talent retention. The cost of this workshop is paid in full by the Talent Management Group. Sign up now on the Corporate Learning website.

Me: Huh. Who is the Talent Management Group? Let me look up the sender on the corporate org chart.

<looks up the sender on the corporate org chart>

Me: I guess this is real. I'll sign up!

<look for the class on the learning site. it's not there.>

Me: <writes an email> Talent Management, the class Influence Skills is not listed on the learning site.

Talent Management: Please disregard email. Your inclusion in the distribution list was inadvertent.

Me: Oh.

My thoughts exactly.

Is your performance review this month? Guess you'll find out. FWIW, that's not what came to mind when I read the story. Just because you're not a "top performer" doesn't mean that they want to let you go. It read to me like a course they would send out to up-and-coming managers - they're the ones who need to be concerned about talent retention, not the talent itself.

The way I read it, this course is sent out to talent they wish to retain. But you could be right.

Same here, since I wouldn't have laughed if I thought it meant you weren't going to be retained.
