Masterclass - Talent Liberation by Dr Maggi Evans
Presented By School of Business and Economics
About this event
Talent Management is now a core part of business vocabulary and we continue to be warned of a scarcity of talent that will bring dire consequences. Can Talent Management help us?
We suggest that Talent Management as practiced in most organisations is not fit for purpose. It is driven by an underlying assumption that talent is scarce; it is based on narrow views of future organisational needs and individual motivations. A more dynamic approach is needed. One that harnesses more of the talent that is lying dormant and that recognises the real challenges facing organisations and individuals in this changing work environment.
In this engaging and thought-provoking event, you will hear direct from the authors of a highly acclaimed new book, ‘From Talent Management to Talent Liberation’. You will hear how Talent Liberation brings new conversations around talent, challenges current assumptions and poses very different questions. This opens new ways of thinking about current and future talent challenges, creating practical ways to limit risk and increase competitive advantage.
Maggi Evans is an experienced consultant with international experience across a wide range of sectors, who is passionate about liberating talent in ways that benefit the individual and the organisation. She brings together research and practice to develop practical ways for organisations to drive competitive advantage through their approach to talent.
Maggi will be joined by co-authors John Arnold Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Loughborough University and Dr Andrew Rothwell, Director of MSc Human Resource Management programme at Loughborough University
