It can be challenging to manage a team during tough times, especially your A-Team players. Uncertain times bring increased stress and low morale forcing your best talents to look elsewhere for jobs. So, what's the best bet for managers, supervisors, team leaders, human resources professionals, and executives to recover from uncertain times? Regardless of other priorities, you need to start making talent management your top business priority when you are witnessing instability.
Strategic talent management is simply a matter of anticipating the need for human capital and then developing a plan to meet those needs through employee engagement. Most people like a definitive yes or no; right or wrong; many people like to paint by numbers, to have it laid down in front of them, or they prefer to follow a step by step process - 1-2-3. How does this thinking fit with your ideas for talent management?
As leaders drive innovation and adaptation at relentless speeds, they must sustain a core enduring vision to help their organizations stay focused. To keep pace in a constantly evolving business world, managers often need to implement changes that impact their employees, processes, and products. How would you rate yourself in the area of change management?
When leading, especially during times of uncertainty and adversity, crisis and change, leaders should avoid showing signs of immaturity or lack of preparedness. Doing so will make your employees feel unimportant, unaccepted and insecure. Leaders set the tone, they always do! A positive attitude can neutralize chaos and allow you to deal with negativity as well as make the game-changes required for effective talent management.
Although organizations can't control the climate, they can build a strong ship, and staff it with a leadership team that can successfully navigate the ocean, even when one or more employees rocks the boat and tries to convince everyone else that there is a storm at sea. Uncertainty is challenging by definition, but everyone can learn to deal with it. It's becoming an increasingly important skill when facing recovery from uncertain times.
