2 Days Advanced Seminar on 
Talent Management via Strategic Talent Acquisition and Retention 
(Facilitated by: Prof. Dr. Lee Karling)

The phrase ‘the war for talent’ was devised by McKinsey and Company in 1997, and has today become a buzz word for progressive organizations keen on building, maintaining, and enhancing their pool of talented and high achieving employees. Over the next 20 years, the biggest challenge for these progressive organizations would be on how to attract, retain, build, and improve these talents to drive organization performance. Unfortunately, although talk is rife, reality is totally different.

 Many organizations are still unprepared to invest (financially, generally, but also mentally) in activities that are necessary to nurture and groom these top performers to go beyond their limitations. Some organizations opined that just merely pumping in money to buy talent would be adequate, and go into shock when the talents purchased falls flat on expectations! What went wrong?

This workshop will provide information and strategies required to attract, build, retain, and enhance existing talent to move them to a higher level so to ensure continuous performance at the highest possible level. However, it MUST be understood that talent management is NOT the sole responsibility of HR, but, for Talent management to be effective, ALL line management must be held accountable.

Delivery Methodologies: Lecture, group discussions, hands-on analyses

Course Objectives: 
At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to:
    1. Provide information on what talent management is and the
        reasons for organizations to focus on talent management

    3. Have In-depth awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the

       on the key areas.

        winning the war for talent

Mon & Tue: 9 – 10 July 2012 
2 Days Advanced Seminar on 
Leadership and Organizational Behavior                                      
(Facilitated by: Prof. Dr. Serafin Ngohayon)

Human resources comprise the most important element of an organization since it is the people within that make the organization run, perform and achieve its goals. The increase or loss of capital resources, the maximum utilization or destruction of the equipments or material resources and the maximum use or disuse of technology are all dependent on the people managing/ handling them. The direction of the organization is determined and delivered by the navigators of the organization- the people assets.

Hence, the task of the leader/manager is to harness the potential of each and every member of the organization, to elicit dedication and commitment among them, and to guide or lead them to desired goals. The direct relation of employee performance and motivation has well been proven, as seen when well-motivated employees bring the organization to success while the reverse, its doom. To emerging leaders, the knowledge, understanding and the implementation of the dynamics of human behavior will ensure the success of an organization, business or even personal undertakings.

This course covers the entire dynamics of human behavior in organization. Specifically, it will tackle how human behaviors are formed, exhibited and how they impact on the overall performance of an organization as it strives to reach its desired state. Employee motivation, theories and models of motivation will be discussed vis-à-vis the organization’s development direction. Leadership and supervisory behavior will be expounded as the main catalyst of an organization’s development. Organizational Development as a holistic tool of instituting development initiatives in an organization by harnessing the behavior of people will be highlighted to challenge students, leaders and would be leaders to give importance on human behavior in organization.

Course Objectives: 
At the end of the course, the students should have:
    1. Gained a deeper and wider understanding on the dynamics of
        human behavior in organizations;
    2. Known and internalized how human behavior in organizations are
        shaped and influenced by the factors within the organization and
        vice versa;
    3. Improved their knowledge, skills and competence as leaders
        Human resources comprise the most important element of an
        organization since it is the people within that make the
        organization run, perform and achieve its goals.

1 Day Advanced Seminar on 
Human Capital Development - Design and Analyses                      
(Facilitated by: Prof. Dr. Lee Karling)

When organizations flounder within the global business environment, many begin to realize that the internal human capital pool is inadequately developed to meet the challenges of the millennium. This is because when the economy goes into recession, human capital development will often be required to take the back seat as the organization focuses on cost-cutting measures. Unfortunately, such strategy will often lead to an even faster downward spiral for the organization as human capital development is even more crucial during recession.

Course Objective
The objective of the module is to provide the tools to HR Professionals to allow them to analyze performance gaps in order to facilitate the development of human capital

Delivery Methodologies: Lecture, group discussions, hands-on analyses

Brief Module Content:
• Understanding the need for Human Capital Development
• Using appropriate tools for identifying human capital development
  needs – the use of performance gap analyses (Previous term: TNA)
• Providing the HR Professional with the right tools for conducting the
  performance gap analyses – to determine whether a training or
  non-training solution is required
• Understanding the human capital development cycle for short-term
  and long-term learning and retention
• The design of annual development plan focusing on three types of
  competencies: core, tasks, and generic
• Scheduling of human capital development activities to cater to
  organization needs

Friday, 13 July 2012 
1 Day Advanced Seminar on 
Human Capital Development Assessment and Management    
(Facilitated by: Dr. Lee Karling)


One of the oft-cited reasons for management and HR practitioners in general to shift the focus of the organization away from effective and relevant human development activities is the lack of assessment to provide evidence of the effectiveness and contribution of the human capital development endeavor. Consequently, HCD is not being given appropriate attention, thereby leading to a lack of talent pool for many organizations. A strong competency-based organization would be more appreciative of the value of HCD as the use of appropriate measuring and assessment tools can assist organizations in achieving more effective ways of recouping the investment in its human capital.

Objective: this module follows through from Module 5 to provide the tools required for assessing the effectiveness of human capital development strategies and to allow the HR Professional to better management the strategic development of human capital

Delivery Methodologies: Facilitation, group discussions, development of appropriate tools via practical exercises

Brief Module Content: 
• Differentiating the tools for human capital development – the use of
  training, coaching, mentoring, and facilitating
• Determining the need for the assessment of human capital
  development
• Recognizing differences between formative and summative
  assessments – using both
• Summative assessment: Kirkpatrick’s Model VS Others
• Understanding the step-by-step assessment of human capital
  development endeavors using Kirkpatrick’s model
• Learning the other methods of assessments: DOE
