Make Talent Your Business
How Exceptional Managers Develop People While Getting Results
By Wendy Axelrod, Jeannie Coyle
Publisher: Berrett-Koehler Publishers
Final Release Date: May 2011
Pages: 210

Highly talented employees are the key to every organization's success. Yet despite their best intentions, for most managers growing talent while successfully doing their ‘day jobs' and staying on top of results seems like a pipe dream. But it doesn't have to be.

Wendy Axelrod and Jeannie Coyle show you how exceptional managers make this dream a reality. These managers go way beyond the usual coaching and performance management to integrate development into their everyday workflow rather than making it a separate “to do.” Axelrod and Coyle draw from their research with exceptional managers from companies like Corning, Microsoft, Siemens, Merck, and many more to illustrate five powerful practices that can be used in any organization, of any size, in any industry.

    Comments about oreilly Make Talent Your Business:

    This book will not apply to everyone in the same way, but there are universal insights. On an individual level, being happy in one's work, having goals, feeling a sense of accomplishment, and experiencing growth in new skills and experience--these things make for job satisfaction and productivity. The authors of Make Talent Your Business explore ways in which individual development can be fostered in a group or corporate business environment. The book encourages managers to take their eyes off the end-all goal of making money to "invest" in their employees. The actual "payoff" will be in satisfied and productive employees.
