Topic: From a Pair of Hands to a Whole Man

Talent Manager is to establish a system for the corporation to recruit and retain a whole man rather than just a pair of hands. In the phase of recruitment we select hands ¡V the candidate¡¦s qualification, ability and competence. Retention is a period when we focus on the man¡¦s mission, vision and values to test the alignment between the person and the company. A whole man is someone who understands his environment and helps the company to achieve result. We introduce a R3 formula (Recruit x Retain x Result) to talent manager for a sustainable development of an organization.

Topic: Managing and Developing Talent Through Change

Successful business strategies are built on managing three important elements effectively, namely products/markets, processes and people. Organisations generally operate in some state of perpetual change but it is usually only when change becomes significant that the importance of giving equal weight to all three elements becomes clear.

Change is always associated with some form of restructuring. In some cases organisations may need to become smaller, in which case decisions must be made about who stays and who goes and on what terms. In other cases, change may required by growth in which case some people may not have the skill and or motivation to take on further levels of responsibility. All of these issues must be carefully managed because without the cooperation of the relevant stakeholders the best intended plans will probably fail.

Contemporary management theory stresses the significance of products/markets and processes in developing strategy but often fails to give due consideration to people issues. As a result universities and business schools often produce graduates who know something about the management of tasks but far less about leadership or, in other words, the management of people.

The positive aspect of leadership is that it can be learned and developed thorough training, mentoring and, of course, daily practice. Understanding what good leadership is and what qualities make a good leader, is the essence of good management and therefore of sustainable business success.

Should employees have their say?
