The Talent War: How Special Operations and Great Organizations Win on Talent
In our modern business landscape, the war for talent is more complex than ever. You need to attract and retain the best talent for your organization to win, but without the right strategy or mindset, you won’t be able to compete. If your revenue is declining, you’re losing market share to your competition, or your organizational health is deteriorating, it’s time to evolve how you approach this never-ending war. After all, your PEOPLE—not your product or service—are your strongest competitive advantage.
The Talent War explores how US Special Operations Forces (SOF) assess, select, and develop their world-class talent. You’ll learn how to adopt a talent mindset, the single greatest weapon you can possess in the war for talent. When your organization reflects this mindset, you will hire, train, and develop the right people, and put them in the best positions to make decisions that allow you to retake the advantage and win the war.
