Managing Talent for Sustainable Business Results Workshop

To ensure the attainment of business goals, talent identification, development and management is necessary. Talents management is even more imperative, where an organization wants to ensure sustainable success into the future. A stringent talent identification and selection, robust development and effective talent management systems and processes are the way to go.

This course therefore aimed at introducing participants to talent acquisition and development strategies and provide some tips to enable an effective management of current talents within the business to achieve current and future goals as well as tap into the pool of talents outside the organization. The primary objectives of this workshop were to enable participants to:

  • Apply the 3 B’s model when deciding the talent strategy to adopt
  • Use the 9-box matrix when identifying talent for succession
  • Apply the 70:20:10 principle when designing development activities for identified talents
  • Utilize a variety of approaches when designing strategies to manage the different categories of talents
  • Apply the GROW model when coaching talents and direct reports

The workshop proved to be highly educational and interactive, fostering engaging discussions, individual and group activities, and role plays. These activities were designed to encourage participants to learn from their own experiences.
