Course structure

Lesson 1. What does talent management involve

21:43 min
What is a talented employee? There is no single answer to this question in the business world — all entrepreneurs and experts have their own stance on this issue. Nevertheless, in this lesson, we will try to provide you with the answer! You will learn what talent management is and determine its goals. Additionally, you will review the basic steps of talent management and learn how to assess your employees' skills.

In the additional materials, you will find a list of behavioural indicators that will help you determine the achieved level of competency of an employee or indicate the required level of competence for candidates for a position.

Lesson 2. Talent attraction

10:20 min
Almost no talent comes to your company for interviews, even though you have an established system for posting vacancies and selecting candidates. How do you fix this? View this lesson to find out. Moreover, you will understand what a talented candidate may be looking for when making a decision about applying for a job.

Additionally, you will study the main ways to attract talent to your company, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

Lesson 3. Talent selection

8:30 min
The most costly mistake you can make during recruiting is hiring a candidate who is unsuitable for the position in terms of their competencies, motivation and values. But how do you choose the right person from dozens, hundreds or even thousands of candidates and not regret it? This is what we will talk about in this lesson. You will learn what to do once the right candidates have joined your company. We will teach you how to select the best of them and evaluate the competencies that you need in your company.

In the additional materials, you will find a guide to the STAR method — a behavioural type of interview — and study the classification of methods for assessing competencies by category and measurement efficiency.

Lesson 4. Talent development

11:13 min
You already know that talent is not only about a person’s natural abilities. These are competencies that have been developed to a high level. But some people already have impressive starting skills, while others have to work hard to acquire them. So in this lesson, you will discover how to help any employee maximise their potential and become a talent for your company. You will realise what opportunities to give to those who have already begun to realise their talent, and how to unlock the potential of those who are not yet confident in their abilities.

Additionally, you will receive instructions for conducting one-to-one sessions, and you will find check-up statements that will help you learn how engaged in the business affairs your company’s employees are.

Lesson 5. Parting ways with a talent

10:16 min
Developing talent is no easy task. Along the way, some talent leaves the company. In this lesson, you will learn how to retain a talented employee if they want to leave, and how best to part with a professional if dismissal becomes inevitable.

In the additional materials, you will find basic questions to use in the exit interview.
