Talent—and how companies attract and unleash it in a fiercely competitive world—is a key differentiator. The old reality that people need companies has been replaced with a new one: Companies need people. The war for talent has intensified. And the most effective weapon a company has is the ability to find, develop, and retain potential talent. Now is the time to invest in your leadership potential.
