There’s also an old saying:
YOU CANNOT RECRUIT ON BEHAVIOURS ALONE!!
You can interview John Wayne on a Friday then Woody Allen turns up on the Monday! This can be avoided as the interview is a masked and adaptive scenario. Or as a jobseeker you know you can do the job from a skills viewpoint however have a poor interview as you haven’t projected your natural talents the correct way, remember you need to connect dynamically with the interviewer, you can only do this as if you know yourself and know how to connect with another behavioural dynamic
Even if the suitable hire is achieved, things can change within the work environment.
The only constant in life is change.
Talent management is a constantly moving target that therefore constantly must be monitored. How do you monitor your talent as a company or as an individual how do you know, develop and nurture your own talent?
