GraemeCodrington – Yes, it will cost more

Recently, Dr Graeme Codrington was having an informal discussion with a number of accountants and auditors about creating an attractive corporate culture for attracting and retaining talented young people. He reflects on how (and why) many leaders believe that efficiencies and cost savings are primary motivators, and decisive factors in organisational developmental thinking. And he suggests that this is not only short-sighted, but also dangerous for corporate health.

KeithCoats – Whatever: Leading the Next Generation – Six essential things leaders need to know about leading TalentLeadership in today’s world is not easy. I suspect it has never ‘been easy’ but with the contemporary levels of complexity, connectedness and ubiquitous change these are indeed unique times in which to live and lead. The twin challenges that leaders face, that of leading diversity and understanding the inherent paradoxes, demands from leaders new mindsets that lead to new behaviours. All of this converges, like the Leader's personal perfect storm, when it comes to leading Talent or those we refer to as the 'Bright Young Things'. This article explores six keys to understanding and leading Talent. It may even shed some light on those 'Bright Young Things' who inhabit your household!

Barrie
Bramley
– They drive me crazy!

Boomers (in their 40s
and 50s) and Xers (in
their 20s and 30s) have
very different communication
styles and needs. In
the workplace, they
can drive each other
crazy. Barrie Bramley
provides some excellent
insights into why this
communication gap exists,
and gives some great
practical solutions
for Boomers and Xers.

Raymond
deVilliers
– Whining, Moaning
and Achieving: Dealing
with frustrated
talent in the workplace

In sessions that
we conduct on Talent
management with
both those who lead
talent and those
who are considered
talent everything
goes brilliantly
until the end of
the day when we
ask: "So, what are
you going to do
now?" At this point
there is generally
a throwing up of
hands into the air
and a frustrated
whining sessions
begins. What it
basically boils
down is the passing
of the talent 'hot
potato' from one
person or group
to the next. Executives
say HR has strategies
in place, HR says
it is the role of
line management,
line management
says that they are
disempowered by
top-down processes
or too busy with
operational delivery
to do anything differently…


As we facilitate
these sessions we
come in first hand
contact with the
frustrations that
sit in this space.
This article briefly
deals with the conversations
and frustrations
most commonly raised.
It will then propose
options and actions
that should be considered
by the various stakeholders
in this dynamic,
from executives
and other leaders
right down to the
talent themselves.

Aiden
Choles
– Assessing
Wisdom Continuity
within your
Organisation

Recognised experts
in any field
often rely on
nothing more
than a hunch.
Time (and hard
work by others)
typically proves
them to be right.
Where does that
innate gut instinct
come from? Can
you learn it?
Can it be transferred?
These are questions
that get Aiden
Choles interested
in investigating
wisdom continuity
as a critical
organisational
capability.
