Basic Rules For Growing Your Talent

Growing your talent is a full-time responsibility that must be shared by everyone, and there are some basic rules to follow to get it right.


Talent Management is not an HR responsibility – it’s a Leadership responsibility.

Be attentive to the development curve of your talent and understand the constant balance between Skill and Challenge. If you mke the challenge too much for the skill level of the individual they will feel fear and anxiety, yet if you don’t challenge them enough for their skill level they will become bored and experience apathy.

Learn and understand your talent and help select the right situations that will help them grow with the right level of positive fear.
