John Michel's curator insight, January 25, 2013 10:02 PM

Getting the most from your team is important all the time; but when the economy is weak, it’s even more critical. You can’t solve talent problems by throwing money at them, swapping in “better” talent at higher salaries. No doubt your employees are stretched tight, but many of your top performers would probably admit to feeling underutilized. Their workloads may be at capacity, but they’re sitting on a stockpile of untapped—or, even worse, thwarted—ideas, skills, and interests.

Sandeep Gautam's insight:

Hi Folks,

Pls consider following my new scoop.it topic 'Flourish Mentoring' as I will be curating workplace and leadership related articles under that topic from now on. I'll be using the 'positive psychology' topic more for basic research in positive psychology and applications to say school settings, but all  applications to workspace settings will now be covered under 'Flourish Mentoring'.  

 

thanks,
