What’s the one thing you prioritize most in your leadership role? If it’s not talent strategy, it should be!

Leaders today are experiencing a war for talent - and retaining the right talent. And particularly in the HR/People space, talent and hiring decisions will always reflect on you, which is why I actually consider it the most critical responsibility for a leader. It’s the most important asset you can have as an individual, leader and organization and finding the right talent should be the core goal as we’re defined by the quality, success and growth of the talent we attract.

I’ve thought about what I would change about my early leadership skills and priorities, if I could do it all over again. So today, I’m sharing those tips and stories about being a talent contributor instead of a talent user, including: 

  • How you can distinguish yourself as the right talent
  • Principles for staying relevant in a world of vast change
  • Leadership competencies to keep in mind as you navigate the current talent war - no matter which side you’re on.

Over the next few months, I’ll be introducing you to a few of the most talented leaders I’ve had the privilege to know and learn from. I’d love to hear from you about where you are on your talent journey. Hope you'll join me for this episode!
