In this book, Andrew Benett explores how truly "talent centric" organizations thrive in today's changing economy. Based on original research and in-depth interviews with outstanding leaders of talent-driven organizations such as Zappos, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Nestle, Dow Chemical, The Motley Fool, AnswerLab, and more, Benett uncovers emerging trends and benchmarks and shows why it is so important to invest in and develop tomorrow’s talent. Readers will come away with a clear lesson: Talent is no longer something to be palmed off down the chain of command. It must be the top business priority of the most senior people in the company—including the CEO.
“It is a timeless truth known since the dawn of civilization that people matter most. High performance and good production are logical outgrowths of investments made in people. In the end, the difference between average companies and smart companies can be found in the manifestation of this truth: people first. Andrew Benett understands both the art and science of finding, nurturing, and sustaining talent for the good of the individual as well as for the entire enterprise. Anyone interested in being an effective leader can learn tremendously from this book.” –Eric L. Motley, PhD; Vice President and Managing Director, Henry Crown Fellowship Program, The Aspen Institute
