The Talent Delusion
The New Psychology of Human PotentialBook - 2017
"All organisations have problems, and they nearly always concern people: how to manage them; whom to hire, fire or promote; and how to motivate, develop and retain high-potential employees. Psychology, the main science for understanding people, should be a pivotal tool for solving these problems— yet most companies play it by ear, and billions of dollars are wasted on futile strategies to attract and retain the right people for key roles. Bridging the gap between the psychological science of talent and common real-world talent practices, The Talent Delusion aims to educate HR practitioners and leaders on how to measure, pre4dicxt and manage talent. It provides data-driven solutions to the common problems encountered with employee selection, development and engagement; and outlines how to define and evaluate talent; how to detect and inhibit toxic employee behaviours; and how to identify and harness leadership potential." -- Publisher's descxription.
