Project HEADWAY: Talent Management Is A Personal Responsibility
This presentation is supporting material for this video.
When we talk about talent management, we often identify the work that organizations take on to develop and ensure availability of the skillsets and capabilities that they need to thrive in the future. That is all well and good in ensuring the organization has the competencies it requires. In this day and age, however, we all need to be responsible for our own talent management.
The idea of talent management presumes someone else taking responsibility for our skills development, our assignments and our career development. There was a day and an age when that was reasonable, appropriate and even valued. We don’t live in that time anymore. Each of us needs to take responsibility for where we are, what we are doing and where we are going.
We need to be identifying and building our own talents to ensure we are positioned for the roles we want in order to succeed and thrive. We need to be identifying the opportunities that are available to us, and the pathways and strategies by which to attain them. We need to take a critical view of our skills and capabilities, and identify what we need to develop, what we need to emphasize and even what we need to play down.
You have a whole career ahead of you. To manage it well, you need to know where you are, where you are going, the gaps you face and the opportunities available to bridge them. This webinar provides you with the grounding and guidance to manage your own talents, and to take charge of your own progression.
