In the Talent Economy, managers must play an increasingly crucial role as stewards of talent. Despite this, most organizations fail to provide managers with the training, support, and accountability necessary to hire, develop, engage and retain high-performing talent. Organizations compound this problem by promoting employees into management roles regardless of their ability to be successful leaders of talent.
This Solution Suite is based on a webcast presented by Dr. Mark Allen, Ph.D., an educator, speaker, consultant, and author, in October 2014. In it, you will learn effective ways to hire and develop managers that have the skills, knowledge and abilities necessary to act as true “talent leaders” in your organization.
This Solution Suite will demonstrate:
- How traditional approaches to selecting and developing managers hurt employee engagement and overall performance.
- Why promoting top individual contributors into management positions is not one mistake, but two.
- The essential skills, competencies and behaviors of successful talent leaders.
- How to hold managers accountable for talent outcomes.
