    Key to good talent management

    Key to good talent management
    • Create your strategy in accordance with your business needs. It sounds like a given but it is not always done.
    • Take into account not only your high potentials but also your high professionals-they make the organisation work.
    • The faster you can show success, the greater the acceptance and momentum
    • Be rigorous. Come up with a system and stick to it. If you change it every year, people get confused.

    • Put your attention on what the other person is actually saying rather than on the person themselves or what you think they might mean by their words

    • Visualise
    • Believe what the other person is saying
