    "Spotting-talent-is-one-of-the-essential-elements-of-great-leadership" -  David McCullough

    It is not news that building and developing top talent should be a critical priority for today’s successful organisations. Figuring out how to do it faster, better, and earlier may soon become a significant competitive advantage. It is so easy to get leadership talent identification wrong. Spotting leadership talent is a minefield, as it is cluttered with our…

    Managing diversity is defined as "planning and implementing organisational systems and practices to manage people so that the potential advantages of diversity are maximised while its potential…
