Few companies teach facilitation as part of their leadership development agenda. And yet, if we want collaboration, if we want to grow teams, if we want to challenge talent in a meaningful way, then being able to get the best out of a meeting of minds becomes very important.

Coaching is a given in virtually every form of endeavour where excellence is the benchmark of success. However, research suggests that only about one-third of CEOs receive formal coaching. Coaching mastery draws on a robust coaching model, meaningful executive experience, cultural relevance, interpersonal sensitivity and mental agility. John Burdett explains the benefits of coaching and presents a 'Coaching the CEO' template.
To lead is to be in the people business - present and future. Talent management generally, and talent acquisition more specifically, are strategic. How do we define the qualities that shape the leadership we need? How do we start to create tomorrow's leadership today? John Burdett outlines the linchpin role that (the right) leadership competencies play in transforming talent management into a competitive advantage.
When the interviewee is truly a top candidate, both parties are being fully evaluated. Here are 10 candidate questions that you, as a recruiter, must know how to answer.
Although by no means replete, in some ways, the 10 questions outlined are an acid test of how prepared you are for the turbulent talent management path that lies ahead.
"With this article, we set out to show which mindsets and practices are proven to make CEOs most effective. It is the fruit of a long-running effort to study performance data on thousands of CEOs, revisit our firsthand experience helping CEOs enhance their leadership approaches, and extract a set of empirical, broadly applicable insights on how excellent CEOs think and act."
Recruitment has always been a battleground of sorts. Three issues combine to make it evermore so:
- Scarcity - the ever-increasing difficulty and, indeed, frustration of uncovering talent.
- Talent acquisition is part of a wider talent management system and if the other elements in the system (e.g., leadership development, coaching, performance management, a culture that supports team effectiveness) are poorly thought through, excellence in the actual hiring process is quickly lost.
- In a world unfolding faster than it ever has in human history, recruitment is, and must be, strategic.

There is one fact of life that is impossible to ignore - tomorrow will be (very) different. More specifically, the rate of change is getting faster - and about to get much faster. It is a matter of adapt or perish.
Flexibility, a flatter structure, enhanced freedom to act, and a laser-like business focus represent part of the answer. Being faster, however, is ultimately all about how people learn.
In this excerpt from the book 'The A–Z of Organization Culture', John Burdett explains why the speed of learning is quickly becoming the ultimate competitive advantage, and presents several innovative ways of introducing effective learning experiences into your organisation.
