Personal Development Meets Talent Development:
How Measures Influences Individual, Team, & Organizational Behavior
Presented by: Al Adamsen
Duration: 90 Minutes
Millennials and high value talent regard traditional measures of performance, potential, and development as garbage; and they're right! Such measures, and the "insights" they generate, are garbage at best, and dangerous at worst. They're often unfair, misguided, draining, and often focus energy in the wrong direction. What can be done? What's better?
In this discussion, Al Adamsen will explore the convergence of an individual's personal development with how organization's systematically assess and develop their employees. Such a convergence allows for greater authenticity and, in turn, value for both the individual and the organization. In turn, workforce planning can truly happen, as can accurately identifying the levers of success and pitfalls of failure. The meta-framework described will be able to accommodate what's working well in your organization, while also offering alternatives to what's not working.
Come explore, share, and learn in this session. It's sure to prompt innovative, yet very feasible ideas and ways to moving forward.
