One of the core pillars of any strong sustainable economy, whether within a company or on a larger scale, is when there is genuine opportunity for talent to grow and to challenge.
Failures in talent management are an ongoing source of pain for executives in all organizations. Over the past decade, talent management practices have by and large been dysfunctional, leading companies to lurch from surpluses of talent to shortfalls to surpluses and back again.
Today we face a new set of challenges as many are becoming very aware that we face new shortages in talent. Companies are going to have to work harder than ever to source and develop talent.
Over the last decade, the average age of a board director has increased by over a decade and this has naturally resulted in less opportunities. The average age of a CEO has increased by 15 years over the last 15 years.
There is a wealth of knowledge and experience which exists within every company today; arguably to a higher level than ever before. However, too often that knowledge is not passed down and research has shown that leadership talent is not breaking through as it once was and in fact, worse, research shows that talent feels often disengaged and lacking in trust in their own leaders.
There needs to be strong frameworks which both enable talent and also share that knowledge, pass it between generations.
