4 keys of Talent Management

The four keys of talent management

  • Select for Talent
  • Define the right Outcomes
  • Focus on strengths
  • Find the right fit

 Conventional wisdom encourages you to

  • Select a person … based on his experience, intelligence, and determination.
  • Set expectations … by defining the right steps.
  • Motivate the person … by helping him identify and overcome his weaknesses.
  • Develop the person … by helping him learn and get promoted.

 However, the revolutionary insight common to great managers is

  • When selecting someone, they select for talent … not simply experience, intelligence, or determination.
  • When setting expectations, they define the right outcomes … not the right steps.
  • When motivating someone, they focus on strengths … not on weaknesses
  • When developing someone, they help him find the right fit … not simply the next rung on the ladder.
