The estimated audience of nearly 5,000 HRCI members will have an opportunity to understand the powerful way to recognize the distinction between knowledge, skills and talents. Knowledge and skills are the components of the iceberg one can see above the waterline and the understated talent factor is the information below -- something you cannot see when selecting and developing employees. Although talent is not as easily recognized on the surface, it is the most essential element to success in a role or position. By joining this session with Rath, audience members will learn the key areas of focus when identifying those most talented in your workplace - those top performers - and spending time with them in a meaningful way moving forward.
"I'm looking forward to being a part of HRCI's learning platform at a time when individuals are looking for more opportunities to enhance their knowledge around talent," offers Rath.
