Relational talent management

Talent management has become ubiquitous, but many organisations do not understand the psychology of their most talented employees. Research highlights that most TM strategies and practices are built on toxic assumptions and consequently have shaky foundations. Karen Ward and Dr. Mary Jacobsen explore some of these assumptions, and advise that Talent Management needs to be done with employees, not to them.
