2/7/14: Top Talent Development Posts this Week

February 7, 2014 by Wally Bock

Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to pieces talent management takeaways from the Super Bowl, social media learning, how to drive away talent, and how learning is behavior change.

From Dr. John Sullivan: 8 Great Talent Management Takeaways From the Super Bowl

“A couple years back I was asked to outline ‘the future of talent management’ in a talk at Google headquarters. Then as now, I predicted that the future of talent management will follow the ‘professional sports model,’ which many of you witnessed during Sunday’s Super Bowl in New York.”

From Edward Cohen: Social Media Learning Model

“As an industry, we are making the same mistake we have made hundreds of times before, but we’re failing to recognize it: We’re trying to use a new technology within the existing paradigm.”

From Liz Ryan: Ten Ways Companies Drive Away Talent

“Talk is cheap. Attracting talented people into an organization and hanging onto them — now that’s another story.”

From Charles Jennings: Learning is Behaviour Change: why is it often so hard to help it happen?

“How many of us have tried regimes of dieting or increased exercise, or even keeping away from some stimulant or another for for a time only to fail to keep to our intentions after an initial few weeks (or even days). We return to previous behaviours far more easily than we’d like to think we do.”
