MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

Talent Trending

In discourse after debate, one trend dominates. It is an Us versus Them paradigm. In an ideal world, such a discourse must not exist, but a more collaborative approach. For that to happen, the first thing needed, is to understand the others’ perspective. One needs to see how others function, before allowing for any sort of hatred to boil over. Such tensions have recently surfaced in Ethiopia, Thailand, Canada, Mexico and in the USA. Once the other’s perspective is somewhat understood, those involve need to balance their drives towards power with some love. This will be a boon for companies’ talent management networks, while also boosting the collaboration drives.

It is a common trend among professionals across sectors, to worry about their future selves. They often try to take out time to do things that will help them out in the long run. This is a good strategy, but even better will be if one starts practicing about one’s future self, in the present itself. This is because one practically inculcates the habits and traits that one goes through and practices during the existing time period. No amount of specific management training or coaching sessions can solve for this experiential learning. A lot of this was found out during the several case studies in which the firm- Bregman Partners- was involved in.

But one must stick to the schedule decided. Many large corporations even organize corporate training sessions to cope with such issues.

A few steps have emerged which would help professionals identify the ways to rediscover one’s purpose at the work place. One of them is to bring the whole self to work. There are no areas of one’s personality that need be hidden from view. The person must also get on with making a list of things he/ she enjoys. One’s personality gets reflected in his/ her likes and dislikes. Some may enjoy practicing their hobby at work, while others may be most engaged for the corporate training programme held. One must never work in isolation, but understand where he/ she fits in as part of the bigger picture. The contribution will then be more holistic. Instead of trying to merely find one’s purpose at work, the pro might as well try funding the same. Thus, due respect needs to be paid to the fundamental aspects such as the paycheck.

There is a lot of talk these days on the work- life balance. However, a lot of this discussion is pointless, as these aren’t two opposing poles, as is usually presented. Rather, one brings his/ her entire self to the workplace. Thus, instead of balance, talent management professionals must seek to provide a work- life integration. This is when both work seamlessly together. There will be a lot of challenges along the way. It isn’t merely easy simply ticking off some boxes. One needs to work out the intersection between the career goals and the person’s life goals. A lot of things people work on beyond the workplace, need not be hidden from view.

The fields of wealth management and risk management have both been duly affected by the emergence of platforms such as Tolerisk, Riskalyze and Fina Metrica. Companies are now conducting intense analysis on how people react to risks. One such method is called personality profiling, based around the individual traits and preferences. This helps improve decision making and fosters collaboration. Another process is psychological consultancy, which is being used a lot in talent management. It measures several points in a person’s trajectory including social, ethical, financial health and career considerations. There is also the Cambridge Code, which is about assessing personalities more broadly. Risk- related behavior tools also help team leaders in conferring to themselves a sense of control.
