Transform Talent Development: Leverage the New Breakthrough Role of Managers
Enormous efforts and resources are invested in Talent Development systems that are underperforming – falling short of achieving the talent quotient that gets competitive results. Significantly stepping up the results of Talent Development efforts requires equipping managers with breakthrough practices and tying their efforts into the heart of your talent strategy—a low cost, high value approach overlooked by most firms.
Our research with exceptional development managers (from companies such as: Adidas, GlaxoSmithKline, Siemens, Corning, Kraft, Genentech, IBM, and Intel) revealed five practices these managers use to drive rich development that goes well beyond coaching, performance management and training. Their new blend of management work, which simultaneously gets results and develops staff, is deliberate, resourceful and continuous.
