About the course

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to upgrade your talent strategies in line with progressive thinking with this two day course.

Progressive Strategies for Talent Managementis a facilitation –style two-day workshop which examines established best practice in talent management and the associated limitations and opportunities for more progressive strategies. You’ll gain an understanding of strategies that focus on positive psychology, inclusiveness and the establishment of talent-centred cultures.


You’ll learn how leading institutions and other authorities are evolving the talent management discipline, and be given the opportunity to develop practical implementation plans for your own organisation. You’ll come away with a sharper understanding of the links between talent management, positive psychology and performance. You’ll be able to share new creative ideas on talent management with other senior practitioners and managers, and define the immediate and medium-term benefits of maximising the use of talent.
