If talent management is a top priority, how much are you leveraging performance potential across your organisation?

 

Everyone has talent. Not everyone is clear what their talents and strengths are and how to capitalise on them. Critically for organisations, neither are their managers or HR leaders.

Realising strengths and the energy that fuels them is a clear and natural route to enhancing employee contribution, engagement and performance.

Research shows that when people use their strengths they perform better, achieve results faster and feel more resilient, satisfied, energised and engaged. Strengths use is a core predictor of workplace engagement, which in turn predicts increased productivity, higher profits, greater commitment and retention. A strengths-based approach to talent and performance management helps realise this potential and is the key to an engaged, high performing workforce.

We help you get the best from talent throughout the employee life-cycle by unlocking strengths performance and potential.

Organisations are increasingly striving for higher productivity, cost-reduction and results. A strengths-based talent selection and development strategy can help HR and business leaders realise the strengths of each person in the organisation as well as potential hires. This approach leverages resources and motivates performance, making people feel more energised and engaged in their work.

Performance management is often seen simply as dealing with disciplinary issues or poor performers. Many managers don’t like and avoid performance conversations. Too often they lack the skills, positive frameworks and motivation to do it well. Strengths-based performance management equips managers to manage the performance and motivation of each team member in an active, individualised and positive way.

It also yields exceptionally high returns. In a major global study, when people focussed on their strengths during appraisals, their performance rose a massive 36%. When they focussed on weaknesses, performance dropped by 27%.

When we help organisations assess strengths, optimise performance and design strengths-based talent strategies, we use Realise2, a next-generation strengths tool. Realise2 enables HR and business managers to support people to marshal strengths, moderate de-energising behaviours, minimise weaknesses and maximise strengths potential. Realistic assessments can also be made about job fit and deployment.
