Reaching The Summit - Professional Development Market Trend



A 2005 talent management survey published by the Society for Human Resource Management contains some interesting challenges for organization leaders.

According to Human Resource professionals, the top four areas of improvement for their organizations’ talent management programs are:


  • ÚEncouraging career growth and development opportunities

  • ÚIdentifying gaps in employee competency levels

  • ÚCreating a culture that made employees want to stay with the organization

  • ÚBuilding a deeper reservoir of successors at every level

What can be done to address these needs? We must recognize that leadership is the # 1 productivity tool available to business today.

Resources applied to strengthen organization leaders can create development opportunities, improve retention and create successors through coaching and mentoring high-potential employees.

These activities can take on many shapes and forms and the reward to the high-potential employee can pay huge dividends.
