“Recruiting World Class Talent”, with Simon Hartley, MSc
How can you spot people who have the potential to become world class, before they reach the podium? Of course, it’s very easy to assess a person’s world class credentials as they’re being presented with an Olympic gold. But how could you identify them as they’re developing?
This is the challenge that many business and sporting organisations now face. Most now recognise that their people are their greatest asset. Therefore, attracting and developing the best people is becoming increasingly important and the competition is getting fierce
So, what can we learn about recruiting talent from world class organisations? How do elite sports teams identify, recruit and select the greatest talent? What do they look for? How do they assess whether a person has what it takes to become world class
During this session, Simon Hartley will share insights from the world of elite professional sport, Olympic programmes, Special Forces, The Red Arrows and many more. We will uncover the signs that help us to identify world class performers in the making. As always, we’ll help you to apply all of this onto recruiting for your organisation.
