The People Cycle

The people cycle is a model for aligning the way that you build a high performing culture within an organisation.

Simply, you attract the right people, develop them to behave in the right way and align them to build the right culture.

The cycle feeds back on itself when your culture defines who the 'right' people are, because cultural alignment is a far better indication of success than the criteria that most companies' hiring managers recruit for.

New Review for Genius at Work

Genius at Work takes a fresh look at how to build an effective and committed workforce. Through relevant case studies Peter Freeth illustrates a sensible and engaging way to maximise the existing talent within an organisation rather than relying on the constantly changing trends of business and talent management theories.

The theories and case studies Peter uses in his book demonstrate to be highly practical with a very positive impact and outcome. I would recommend any HR professional who is looking for insight into building a talent management strategy to read Genius at Work.
