My co-host Annette Cataldi and I are delighted to announce that our guest speaker will be Jay Perry, who will be presenting: “Take Charge of Your Talent:
Putting the Keys to Talent Development in Your Hands “.

Program Description:
It’s time for a revolution in talent development. For generations, organizations have managed talent development. They’ve figured out who the HiPo’s (high potentials) are and focused resources on them. “Trickle down” talent development has shortchanged the rest and created a huge class of PoPo’s (passed over and pissed off). In short, scarcity thinking has limited what people and organizations think is possible.
Let talent bubble up. Shift from “trickle down” to “bubble up” talent development. That’s right; it’s putting the keys to talent development in the hands of the people who have the talent. This tracks a fundamental cultural shift of people taking charge of many aspects of their lives, from booking their own airplane reservations to buying and selling stocks. People want to be in charge of what’s important to them, when they have the tools to do it. So, how can “bubble up” talent development work for both employees and their organizations?
Use these 3 Keys:
Power up your talent story. The first key engages the fundamental source of motivation: employee self-motivation. Instead of viewing managers as “cattle drivers,” think of them as “catalysts” who act to accelerate thinking and precipitate results without taking initiative and responsibility away from team members.
Accelerate through obstacles. The second key transforms how team members think about obstacles. Indeed, as with sailboats that head up into the wind and travel faster than the wind itself, team members can leverage tools to turn obstacles into springboards for success.
Multiply the payoffs for yourself and others. The third key invites people to translate their knowledge and skills into enduring career assets.
Opportunities abound to unlock the talent within today’s workforce. The keys are at hand. The perfect moment is now.
