Human Resource Audit is a process of accessing the quality and quantity (number) of staff within an organization and current practices with a view to detecting if it meets the requirements necessary for achieving its goals and objectives. It is “a comprehensive method of objective and systematic verification of current practices, documentation, policies and procedures prevalent in the HR system of the organization”. read more

Book Review: Talent Is Never Enough – By John B. Maxwell

Posted by | July 25, 2020 | blog

John Maxwell is one of my favourite authors. I love the practical application, unique perspective and depth of thought that characterise his books. I also enjoy how he uses real life stories to illustrate his message and drive home his point in all his works – at least the ones that I have read or listened to – including Talent is Never Enough.

The main message of the book is that while talent often plays an indispensable role in facilitating success, true success is rarely a result of talent alone. Rather, it is a product of many other factors. Talent is Never Enough calls on readers to enhance and maximise their talents by making 13 major choices which will move them from being talented people to becoming “talent-plus” people. read more
