Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
Dr. Edward E. Lawler III, noted author, leading management expert and distinguished researcher, will join host Michael Couch for the inaugural edition of The Voice of Business Growth series, live on Monday April 27th from 10:00-11:00 (PT) / 1:00 to 2:00 PM (ET) on VoiceAmerica's Business Network (http://www.voiceamericabusiness.com).
According to Dr. Lawler, many organizations acknowledge the importance of people but most do little or nothing to make them a source of competitive advantage. In his most recent book, Talent: Making People Your Competitive Advantage, Professor Lawler emphasizes that companies truly competing on the performance of their people need to adopt a Human Capital approach to organizing - simply doing better talent management is not sufficient.
Edward E. Lawler III was recognized as one of the leading management experts by BusinessWeek magazine. He is a Distinguished Professor in the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business and the Founder and Director of the Center for Effective Organizations (CEO). CEO has been recognized by Fortune and other publications as one of the country's top management research organizations. Lawler is the recipient of the top career achievement awards given by the Society for Human Resource Management, ASTD, WorldatWork, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Academy of Management. He is the author or coauthor of more than forty books, including The New American Workplace, HR Business Process Outsourcing, Treat People Right!, From the Ground Up, Rewarding Excellence and Built to Change. His writings have appeared in the Harvard Business Review, Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the Financial Times, as well as many academic journals.
Broadcasting live every Monday starting April 27 at 1:00 PM ET, The Voice of Business Growth with host Michael A. Couch will explore two fundamentals required for sustained business growth and success. The first fundamental is that wealth is generated from a robust strategy that is in sync with the marketplace and that focuses on delivering value. The second fundamental - if you don't get the talent right, your business will never fulfill its strategic potential. The Voice of Business Growth will explore these two tenets from the perspective of successful executives and expert consultants.
