Oscar Wilde once said
"To paint what you see is a good rule in art, but to see what is worth painting is better"
I think believe this quote can be equated to business and talent management.
"To recruit talent is a good rule...but to see what talent is worth recruiting is better"
Business never stands still, it continually evolves. Therefore you need to evolve the talent
- By continually stretching the talent within your organisation. Expand their experience, expand their skills, expand their thinking.
- By making coaching a central tenet of all managers and leaders...not delegated to HR.
- By constantly reading and learning to look for future trends, for talent that is writing about the trends, for talent that it creating the trends....and engaging them with your brand early.
