Event Sponsor

Talent optimization enables your company to rapidly pivot in light of changing circumstances, so you can make tough decisions, fast and with confidence. While talent optimization is a solution for everyday business challenges, it is exceptionally helpful in times of uncertainty. We use the four aptitudes of talent optimization: Hire, Inspire, Design, and Diagnose to provide a framework on how to adapt your business and solve any business challenge. People drive your business - do you know what drives your people?

Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees will learn how to identify forces of disengagement among employees.
  2. How to understand more about what drives human behavior.
  3. Realize how those drives influence workplace behavior and become more self-aware leaders and individual contributors.
