The idea of creating a professional association dedicated to the needs and interests of the talent acquisition community has been debated for a long time. And a number of organizations over the years trying to address this need have come and gone. Turns out, it's not so simple. In fact, it's really hard!

However, there is light at the end of this proverbial tunnel for all you recruiters looking for a place to call home. It's called the Association for Talent Acquisition Professionals - ATAP -- and one of its founding members and acting executive director, Ben Gotkin is here to tell us all about it.

Welcome to a special Leadership Edition of TotalPicture Radio. I'm your host, Peter Clayton. How to Come to Terms with the Emotional Aftermath of the Election is something many of us, myself included, are struggling with.

Several days ago I called my good friend James Mapes to get some advice and hopefully. coping strategies. We had been planning to get together to record and interview regarding his new book.

I met James about 10 years ago when I was hired to film a presentation he gave at Lincoln Center in New York City. He is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, and personal performance coach. 

His latest book IMAGINE THAT! Igniting Your Brain for Creativity and Peak Performance was released last month.

Strategy That Works - Interview with Paul Leinwand

  

How Winning Companies Close the Strategy-to-Execution Gap

Published on April 05 2016

When it comes to evaluating job candidates, every survey of CEOs I've ever seen list leadership potential as the number one attribute they look for. However, two-thirds of executives say their organizations don't have the capabilities to support their strategy.

In a new book published by Harvard Business Review Press titled Strategy That Works: How Winning Companies Close the Strategy-to-Execution Gap co-authors Paul Leinwand and Cesare Mainardi explain why. They identify conventional business practices that unintentionally create a gap between strategy and execution. And they show how some of the best companies in the world consistently leap ahead of their competitors. 

Welcome to a Leadership Channel Podcast on TotalPicture, this is Peter Clayton. Joining David Dalka and myself is Paul Leinwand, principal architect of capabilities-driven strategy and Global Managing Director with Strategy&, PWC's strategy consulting business. Paul is also adjunct professor at Northwestern University's Kellogg school of management.

Based on new research, the authors reveal five practices for connecting strategy and execution used by highly successful enterprises such as IKEA, Natura, Danaher, Haier, and Lego. These companies:

• Commit to what they do best instead of chasing multiple opportunities
• Build their own unique winning capabilities instead of copying others
• Put their culture to work instead of struggling to change it
• Invest where it matters instead of going lean across the board
• Shape the future instead of reacting to it
