Advance Praise for Talent Wins:
Alain Bejjani, CEO, Majid Al Futtaim Group--
"Turning human 'resources' into human 'capital'--a prerequisite to win in this era of talentism. An inspiring read for those who are trying to make a difference!"
Ed Breen, CEO, DowDuPont; Lead Director, Comcast--
"If you believe you've read all there is about the role of human capital in propelling value creation, think again. Charan, Barton, and Carey have crafted their many experiences into a compelling and concise book that frames a 'people before strategy' argument that is refreshingly new and different."
Kenneth I. Chenault, Chairman and CEO, American Express; Director, IBM and Procter & Gamble--
"Engaged employees are the key to success in any business, and Talent Wins offers real-world insights on how to foster talent, inspire creativity, and lead winning teams for the long term."
Alex Gorsky, Chairman and CEO, Johnson & Johnson; Director, IBM--
"Talent is the difference between a good company and great company. And nurturing talent--helping people flourish--requires continuous action, effort, and work. It is critical to the mission and the aspirations of an organization that leaders be inventing, and then reinventing, the talent development playbook. Talent Wins helps you do just that."
Hein Knaapen, Chief HR Officer, ING Bank NV--
"This book gives compelling arguments for treating talent management as a crucial competency for any company that wants to succeed. The authors' proposed approach is a real departure from many accepted practices in talent management. Taking their recommendations to heart will significantly change the role of CEOs as well as the requirements for HR professionals in the future."
William McNabb, Chairman, The Vanguard Group--
"Business leaders have talked about the importance of people for years but often were vague about how to turn talent into a competitive advantage. In this new book, Charan, Barton, and Carey turn conventional views about human resources on their head and create the ultimate playbook for making human capital the ultimate edge for organizations of all types."
Alan Mulally, retired President and CEO, Ford Motor Company; former CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes; and Director, Google and Carbon3D--
"Talented people working together is the catalyst to deliver profitable growth for the benefit of all stakeholders. Talent Wins provides compelling strategies and tools to continuously develop the talent in your organization!"
Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft--
"Millennials will soon account for over half of all workers. They want to be not only more creative, productive, and collaborative than ever before, but they also seek a greater sense of purpose and a deeper connection to their company’s mission. Talent Wins implores senior leaders to know their employees as well as they know their finances and the capital they deploy."
Susan Peters, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, General Electric--
"With real-world experiences from broad industries, Charan, Barton, and Carey bring to life a game plan to identify and develop talent--and leverage that talent for winning outcomes."
Denise L. Ramos, CEO and President, ITT Inc.; Director, Phillips 66--
"A groundbreaking book for the next twenty years that focuses CEOs' attention on the strategic value of employees and the necessity of bringing HR into the leadership circle. A must-read!"

Ho trovato nelle pagine tantissimi spunti di riflessione e di miglioramento che mi hanno stimolato per creare il mio evento di team building, che a distanza di 3 settimane ricordo ancora potentissimo nelle emozioni che mi ha generato.
Uno dei concetti che più mi sono rimasti impressi è espresso nelle prime pagine: "devi gestire il tuo capitale umano come il tuo capitale finanziario".
Per gli autori che si sono impegnati in tantissime interviste ed esempi l'azienda deve essere guidata dal CEO che si avvale fortemente del CFO e del CHRO, chief human resource officer.
L'attenzione maniacale che va messa sull'allocazione del capitale, va posta anche sull'allocazione delle risorse umane.
Sono tante le domande che andrebbero poste, ma quella più potente pare essere "abbiamo le risorse umane per andare da questo punto dove siamo oggi a quello che abbiamo individuato voler esser domani?"
Spesso assistiamo a operazioni dove i capitali governano le scelte per poi accorgersi, solo dopo, che non c'erano le persone per eseguire quelle scelte.
Con questi concetti spesso ci si rende conto di necessitare di una talent first transformation, con annesso perfino il bisogno di una talent technology.
Viene sottolineato come sia necessario passare ad una nuova "TSR" definizione (da total shareholder return a talent, strategy, risk).
Il capitolo 3 è fantastico: mostra come creare una struttura più orizzontale e flessibile per connettere e moltiplicare i talenti, perchè una people first company dipende dal lavoro di piccoli e cross funzionali teams, supportati da "agility, platforms and meaning".
Il capitolo 4 è delicatissimo, reinventa tutto il settore HR, per farne un creatore di valore e un vantaggio competitivo. Vi lascio approfondire i concetti abbastanza forti direttamente nel libro.
Il capitolo 5 è un altro dei miei preferiti, perchè gli autori passano dall'organizzazione agli individui, proponendo una road map per far emergere sempre di più il talento delle persone.
E perchè è cosi importante? Perchè la guerra per i talenti non è mai stata cosi intensa.
Il capitolo finale è stata la mia "reason why" della lettura di questo libro: implementando i concetti del libro cambierai tutto rispetto a come tu "lead" (conduci).
Un libro dalla visione straordinaria che ho amato leggere e che vi consiglio fortemente lasciandovi questa domanda "Oggi che tutto il mondo ha scoperto grazie al corona virus di avere un bisogno assoluto di smartworking, la tua azienda ha le persone giuste per affrontarlo?"
