About Talent & Potential

T&P are experts in 21st century talent strategy, talent pipelines, and self-driven careers and learning.

Our consultants work at Board level on talent strategy. We base our advice on cutting edge research into potential, careers and talent management. Based on this, we have designed innovative potential & leadership systems for several FTSE 100 companies.

T&P invests in great design, to get solid results for our clients. Our products get line managers to adopt high quality talent thinking; and individuals to drive their own learning and careers. For example, our work with Nationwide managers improved 5 key talent skills by 41-57%. Our talent management and career workshops get 100% Excellent or Good ratings, year after year.

T&P’s thought leadership has enabled one business to win the Personnel Today Talent Management Award. Another client was a Finalist in the People Management Award for best HR intervention of the year. In 2012 a client received global recognition, being granted the first-ever beacon award for People Practices by their world regulatory authority, with 2 out of 3 highlighted items being joint initiatives with T&P.

Talent & Potential was formed in January 2005, and focuses specifically on helping organisations retain, develop and get maximum value from their talented people.

There are 3 planks to our approach:

Designing 21st century talent processes

Whether it is a potential model to drive your talent process, or a set of tools managers can use to become true talent managers, we deliver excellent design that shifts attitudes, and reinforces the kind of flexible, intelligent, self-directed behaviour you need.  Clients use us to challenge accepted practice, innovate, and solve problems where there is no ‘off-the-shelf’ solution available.

Helping line managers become talent managers

A organisation’s biggest asset is its people, and getting everyone to fulfil their true potential is a big source of competitive advantage. We take the talent agenda out into the organisation, with toolkits and workshops that enable busy operational and functional line managers to become true talent managers. We have a proven track record in increasing 5 key talent management skills by 41-57%.

Helping people drive their own careers in your organisation

We are experts in career management, based on a lot of hard research into what people who drive successful fast-track careers actually do, day to day.   We help you retain your talented people by equipping them to drive a successful internal career within your organisation.

Our typical client is a large organisation facing turbulence or key talent issues, and looking for new thinking to make the most of their talented people. T&P has worked in virtually every sector, and in private, public and voluntary organisations. We have been retained by the two largest organisations in Europe, and a world-renowned UK financial institution.
