Talent Insider Monthly

September 2018

Dear Friend,,


One of the things we most enjoy is working with clients on their specific issues.  Over the last month we have supported a number of business objectives – from mitigating the risk of downsizing events, to targeted coaching for derailing leaders, to finding that “needle in the haystack” talent for clients who need help immediately.

In this most recent work with clients, the common element is good strategy and great people.  A great strategy will not be executed without the right talent, and the right talent will not have sustained success without a winning strategy.  To that end, we are sharing some insights on strategy and people.

From Outpost to Powerhouse  – this is a concise story of strategic execution. As the newest member of the CMP team, Colleen Brinkmann outlines the positive virtuous cycle of corporations and their social responsibility as the catalyst for the sustained growth of North Texas Food Bank.

Creating Core Champions  – how do you build sustainable employee engagement?  We go to the world of start-ups to get the answer.  This article provides a fresh and practical approach to engagement that can pay benefits immediately.

We also share the final two dates of an exciting Lunch and Learn series on the Future of Work, the MentorRings program (a proven program for emerging women leaders), and key groups and events in our communities. 

We do consider you a friend of the firm.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything we can do for you.

Much regards,

Joe Frodsham | President
