Defining Progress in Talent Management

Keeping track of work performance helps an employer know their employee’s strengths and weaknesses. Talent coaches like Eyal Gutentag know the importance of defining goals and priorities each employee should achieve to become a more resourceful asset to their team.

Performance development allows employees to strive for certain objectives they are expected to master after a certain period.

Creative people want to quickly accomplish their goals. They will tackle issues that may relate to marketing or budgeting from a particular perspective.

Not all creative and talented workers make goals just for the money. Others love to please their managers or their clients. They want “see” the results of their work.

How to Spot Potential in Managing Talent

Would you know talent in someone if you saw it immediately? A few things to look for according to the Havard Business Review:

Ability – Are they able to learn? If you ask them to learn something will they be able to do it quickly?

Social Skills – Will they get another with others in the organization and with your clients?

Drive – Are they motivated to work until the job is completed?

Of course, one of the ways to learn this about someone is to hire them temporarily before making them permanent. This can be a win-win to both parties as they test the waters out.

Can You Hire Talent While Working from Home?

The best way to find talent if not in person is to do a video interview with them. You can use Zoom, FaceTime or Google Meetings to watch their body languages.

Some studies have found that the most trustworthy facial expressions involved a slight raise of the eyebrows and a slight smile.  When talking they should be looking at you with their eyes and not staring at you.

Lastly, watch their mouths. Sights like tightening the lips might be an indicator of distaste, disapproval, or distrust.

An open posture means they are friendly, open and willing to work! This is a success signal for talent management to take note.
