The Invisible Talent

The Invisible Talent (2020)

There is so much talent out there to be discovered. In every city, in every organisation, in every community, in every family, and in every person around the world, there is talent. Yet, the headlines, survey data, and many business leaders persistently insist that there is a shortage of talent in developed and developing markets, in small and large organisations, and in numerous industry sectors. 

There is simply no shortage of talent in the world, but there is a huge shortage of talented people who can identify talented individuals. There is a shortage of focused investment on developing technology that can truly facilitate talent discovery. And there is a shortage of authentic leadership desire to discover invisible talent to genuinely maximise returns.

Business leaders, HR professionals, investors, and talented individuals urgently need to resolve the challenge of visibility. Without transparent and innovative practices, the invisible talent will remain invisible, and businesses will remain inefficient for years to come. We need to leverage the invisible talent to take advantage of productivity and efficiency if we want to build more and better performing organisations in the future.

The Key Leader

The Key Leader (2019)

The changing nature of leadership is the focus of this book, providing insight into the new traits and characteristics that key leaders need to meet today’s challenges in an increasingly competitive market. The evolution of management roles in all entities – whether profit or nonprofit – demands new skills and talent to promote long-term growth and viability in an uncertain economic environment.

In conjunction with this requirement is the recognition of the need to hire the right leaders who meet the organisation’s needs, as well as the right talent at all levels who will engage with leaders and support their strategic efforts.

In highlighting the new face of leadership, this book provides practical points for maximising returns through a logical partnership among key stakeholders in any organisation.

6 Rules of Ultimate Workforce Efficiency (2018)

Getting your employees “on board” with the company’s overall mission and strategic goals is the focus of this book, leading toward optimisation of resources, budgets, and employee talent. Common sense decrees that without employees who are engaged and motivated – and aligned – with the company’s desires and needs, the organisation will not perform to its potential, revenues will falter, and market shares decline.

The challenge that such an alignment entails is ever-present and complex, though the difficulties it represents are not insurmountable. The book highlights practical leadership practices – a number of optimal approaches – that help to point employers in the right direction toward efficiency, productivity, and ultimate value for all stakeholders.
