Become a Talent Talker
Great people developers take an interest in others, they recognise that they didn’t get to where they are on their own, and they want to “pay forward” the time that others have invested in them. Helping others unlock their talent and potential is an enormously rewarding activity, and it doesn’t take very much time, just the right attitude. If you look back on your own career and recognise a talent talker in your past, you owe it to them to become one yourself. If you don’t see a talent talker in your past, you need to look harder, because no one can make it on their own.
Getting managers to have development conversations is one of the most important drivers of unlocking talent and potential in your organisation. This book, and the TalentTalker.com application, makes it easy for any manager to sit down and have a development conversation.
Those conversations can be about improving performance, managing a career, developing leadership skills or formulating and executing new business strategies. Talking connects people, people who feel connected are more engaged, engaged people deliver exceptional results.
