Talent Management: Leveraging Your Organization's Greatest Asset 


Most executives would state that their people are the company’s greatest asset. But do they behave every day as if that were true? Organizations that truly have a Talent Mindset do, and in this session we will discuss exactly what it means to have a Talent Mindset and how that can result in competitive advantage.

Talent management has been defined as “an integrated set of processes, programs, and cultural norms in an organization designed and implemented to attract, develop, deploy, and retain talent to achieve strategic objectives and meet future business needs” (Silzer & Dowell, 2010). It has been depicted by the Human Capital Institute with this diagram: 


Among the topics we will explore in this thought-provoking keynote session are:

  • How to have a talent mindset that permeates the organization
  • How to think about talent acquisition as a strategic priority instead of a tactical, seat-filling function
  • How to ensure that you get a return on investment for all learning and development programs
  • What really is the job of the manager and who should be the managers in your company
  • How to hold people accountable for talent results
  • How to best leverage the knowledge in your organization
  • How to unleash the creativity in your people and truly become an innovative organization
