In a prior post, I introduced the concept of talent development, and provided a worksheet that can be used to map out the specific growth of an individual employee.

Recently, I had the opportunity to help a law firm in Pennsylvania develop a strategic plan. A part of that plan included using the talent development worksheet to specifically hand off key tasks within the new plan. The firm has made dramatic progress on the key elements of their strategic plan by deciding who was responsible, and providing the guidelines for those individuals to take over a portion of the plan.

Inserting talent development into the strategic planning process can yield impressive results. Take the time to download this talent development worksheet and see what you can come up with. If you would like to talk more about talent development or strategic planning, please contact me. I’d love to help!
