BE Safely BOLD? 5 handy tips as Chairman of John Lewis says forecasting is the key to talent management success

Has HR lost it's strategic confidence? - 5 tips to be safely BOLD!

The Chairman of John Lewis talks about the future of recruitment and talent management.


Charlie Mayfield talks about the need to forecast and fear of the future is causing inertia.

I say Bold is the way to go, but WHAT MAKES BOLD a SAFE BOLD NOT a CRAZY BOLD?

When you:

  1. YOU KNOW YOUR BUSINESS CAPABILITY EXTREMELY WELL
  2. YOU KNOW YOUR CUSTOMERS AND THE MARKETS YOU SERVE INSIDE OUT
  3. HAVE YOUR FINGER ON THE PULSE - GLOBALLY AND LOCALLY
  4. YOU HAVE THE BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE TO MAKE GOOD BUSINESS DECISIONS USING SOLID DATA INSIGHT AND TRENDS
  5. YOU HAVE A GREAT NETWORK OF DIVERSE BUSINESS CONTACTS IN DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES - YOU WORK IN PARTNERSHIP

Safe cannot be 100% guaranteed. This is the challenge for conservative HR professionals, so for me...the BRAVE try and BOLD wins the day. That's the choice and sign of a great HR LEADER.
