Who is it for
This course is recommended for those responsible, or involved in, the talent management strategy in any organisation. As the title suggests, this is a progressive programme that deals with purposeful talent management strategy and culture change. Those seeking the fundamentals of talent management processes should consider CIPD Training’s certificate programmes and short courses on this topic.

You’ll learn how leading institutions and other authorities are evolving the talent management discipline, and be given the opportunity to develop practical implementation plans for your own organisation. You’ll come away with a sharper understanding of the links between talent management, positive psychology and performance. You’ll be able to share new creative ideas on talent management with other senior practitioners and managers, and define the immediate and medium-term benefits of maximising the use of talent.

The structure for Progressive Strategies for Talent Management includes:
  • A pre-workshop questionnaire to be completed prior to the workshop
  • Courses start with a 2-day workshop
The programme will cover:

  • Current thinking on talent management; the nature of talent, competence, skills, talent and strength, how talent management is currently defined, the limitations of current thinking
  • Progressive thinking on talent management; radical approaches by progressive organisations, playing to strengths and positive psychology
  • Eight steps to designing a progressive talent management strategy; philosophy and leadership for talent
  • The future of talent management.
Workshop day 1:
  • Business, talent management strategies and me
  • Pre-workshop review and discussion 
  • Evidence-based theories 
  • What are others up to? 
  • What is progressive?   
Workshop day 2: 
  • Growth mindset, maximising strengths and positive psychology 
  • Building a talent management strategy
  • Pulling it all together and action planning.

If you want to discuss talent strategy with progressive thinking and implementation techniques further, join us 4 weeks after the course between 12:30-14:30 in an interactive webinar.  Please call 0208 612 6095, if you would like to attend this.
