Do Talented Individuals Make Talented Teams?

2014 Talent Management Conference
Workplace Application: You will learn why and how to include diversity and inclusion in your efforts to build smart, talented, creative teams.

Not a lot of work is done today by working alone. More and more work is done by groups, teams and networks, but our conversations about talent (as well as our metrics and tools) are still focused on individual talent. Can we simply group talented individuals together and get talented teams? No, we cannot. Talented teams need to be able to harness their differences. This session will help you more effectively marshal your organizational resources toward building smart, talented teams. Learn how you can assist your HR team to better develop the kinds of talent your organization needs for competitive advantage.
