WHY THE SCIENCE OF PEOPLE IS YOUR KEY WEAPON IN THE WAR FOR TALENT

All organisations have problems, and they nearly always concern people: how to manage them; whom to hire, fire or promote; and how to motivate, develop and retain high potential employees.
Psychology, the main science for understanding people, should be a pivotal tool for solving these problems – yet most companies play it by ear, and billions of dollars are wasted on futile interventions to attract and retain the right people for key roles.

Bridging the gap between the psychological science of talent and common real-world talent practices, The Talent Delusion aims to educate HR practitioners and leaders on how to measure, predict and manage talent. It will provide readers with data-driven solution to the common problems around employee selection, development and engagement; how to define and evaluate talent; how to detect and inhibit toxic employee behaviours; and how to identify and harness leadership potential.

Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic is a rare voice of reason in a field where most people talk gibberish
Lucy Kellaway, Financial Times
This is the book I want to hand every manager I've ever worked with who mistakenly assumes "give me 5 minutes with a candidate and I'll tell ya if they are a good hire." Every chapter is filled with quotes, findings, and ideas that I want to post on Twitter and share with the world
Dr. Todd Carlisle, VP of HR, Twitter
A must-read for leaders and HR professionals who want to apply science to drive better business outcomes, and for individuals who want to better understand and leverage their own talents
