Each week, Mike interviews provocative thinkers, innovators and troublemakers on his podcast, Between Worlds so I am delighted to be able to welcome such an experienced professional to the HR L&D Podcast!

Mike’s newest book, The Algorithmic Leader, presents a pragmatic guide for future leaders and is based on many of the fascinating people Mike has met and interacted with over the years from Jack Ma (founder of Alibaba) to Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn), as well as the next generation of entrepreneurs whose companies may end up shaping the future of the world we live in.

  4. How will AI affect Smart decision making?
  5. How will AI change people’s jobs?
  6. Discover Mike’s Vision for a “new leadership model” and the 10 principles every leader needs to know to survive and thrive in the algorithmic age
  7. What is, does it mean to be an algorithmic leader?
  8. Is it ever too late for an older “analogue” company to make the changes necessary to succeed in the algorithmic age?
  9. What will life like in 2030?

Talent Management

Talent Management & the Power of Conversations with Hesketh Emden – #002

Talent ManagementIn this episode “Talent Management & the Power of Conversations” of the HR L&D Podcast, I sit down with Hesketh Emden

Hesketh is a multi-award-winning talent management professional to discuss his experience in developing employee cultures, his passion for promoting and training the power of conversations and of course, to understand more about his learning and development design and strategy implementation expertise.

Hesketh has successfully headed and set up a broad range of public and private sector Learning and Development functions, from Commercial Union during one of Europe’s largest mergers, to the Metropolitan Police.   In 2011 he was recruited by NHS England to lead on talent management, identifying future leaders across London’s 70 NHS organisations.

As part of government health service reforms, in 2013 Hesketh was brought in to help create the brand-new NHS Property Services, a Limited Company owned by the Secretary of State. In this episode of the HR L&D Podcast, we discover how, despite 3200 staff being TUPE’d overnight, he managed to successfully implement a Talent Management structure that supported building a new organisation with a single culture where there had previously been 161 ways of doing things.   Inspirational stuff!

Aside from Hesketh’s passion to promote and train ‘the power of conversations’, we also learn more about his experience at award ceremonies.  Hesketh was a finalist in the CIPD People Management Award in 2012 – ‘Talent Attraction & Management’; was winner of the Charity Learning Awards in 2014 – for ‘Using e-learning to facilitate change’; Finalist of the PPMA Excellence in People Management Awards in 2015 for ‘Talent Management’ and winner again in the HR Excellence Awards 2017 – for ‘Best CSR Strategy’.  Hesketh is very modest when it comes to his own achievements, but I know that our listeners will be keen to find out more about the man behind the accolades.

In this “Talent Management & the Power of Conversations” HR L&D Podcast episode, we discover:

 

  1. Hesketh’s work concerning “the power of conversations” and how this work has evolved
  2. The biggest challenges to making this type of training ‘mainstream’
  3. The tools and processes Hesketh has used to develop successful large-scale talent management programmes
  4. His experience in aligning 161 organisations into one single vision and culture following a 3200 employee TUPE
  5. How Hesketh’s work helped contribute to £5m a year in productivity savings for the NHS!
  6. Practical steps for you to immediately implement so you too can successfully develop positive communications
  7. We learn about his passion for supporting a Substance Misuse Charity and his work concerning the “Lazarus drug”
  8. Hesketh’s view on the impact that technology is having on communications within organisations?
  9. Why every organization should consider entering an industry award.
  10. The main challenges currently affecting Talent Management right now
  11. The key things L&D & HR professionals should be doing now to prioritise and develop talent in their organisations
  12. The reason why all L&D, HR and Talent professionals should embrace communications training?
