Talent Development. It’s moved beyond being a buzz phrase and become something that companies must focus on in order to survive in the 21st century. Talent development executives are being tasked with developing the next generation, opening doors to the C-suite, and ensuring that corporations are poised for long-term success by investing internally into their people.

Internal talent investment is a very positive move – one that we support here at Weaving Influence – and one that more companies and C-suite execs are getting on board with as the benefits are recognized. So if you’re excited about developing the next generation, but you’re stuck on finding resources that you can share, you’re going to enjoy today’s post!

It Started with ATD

Most of you reading this are probably well acquainted with ATD (formerly known as the American Society for Training & Development – or ASTD), but for those of you who might not be familiar with them, here’s the quick version. The Association for Talent Development (ATD) is a professional membership organization supporting those who develop the knowledge and skills of employees in organizations around the world. They provide content (research, books, events, etc.) for the talent development profession, and NOW… they provide something more.
