We write a lot about transforming your talent into A-Players, but that takes more than technology; it takes a commitment to doing the work day in and day out. To help you be the best talent management professional you can be, we’ve created a giant resource pack you can download and take with you.
While printables, guides, checklists and more might seem to undermine our commitment to going paperless, sometimes you just need to map things out. In fact, using handwriting to remember important information can help you retain that info even longer.
- Write it down again and again. Repetition of the process will reinforce your learning.
- Increase your memory by as much as 70% when you go through your notes within 24 hours.
- If you are a morning person, aim to refresh difficult material early on, as your brain is less tired.
- Reading and re-reading material is likely to result in a disappointing 20% retention.
- Use mind maps if they help you to remember facts. This is an excellent way of visualizing how various bits of information fit into a concept/plan. They are also more fun to create than simple notes.
Our mega bundle of printable templates, guides, worksheets and checklists can help recharge your talent acquisition process or talent management process fast and help take your sourcing, recruiting and performance management from good to great. Real guides written by real HR professionals are just the thing you need to start planning for 2017. Grab them all in one huge download and refer back when you need to, or take just one at a time to tackle specific problems you encounter every day.

Unmet Goals = Unrealized Potential
Is your company great at setting goals and far less effective at meeting them? It’s likely because you don’t have the right strategy in place. We’ve boiled goal-setting down to a science (no really, check out our software) and have distilled some of the key factors into this easy worksheet. If you have employees who are not meeting goals, try this. Unmet or Neglected Goals? Put Them Through This Process.
