| The Power Within - developing existing talent vs the external hire with Richard Lees
Many businesses often forget to look at the latent potential that their current team often holds.
It seems that many are all too ready to hire new rather than develop those already in the business, and have untapped or undiscovered capability. With the global movement of people and skills at a standstill, the skills crunch is going to be more evident - development rather than chasing a new hire will be more crucial than ever to the evolution of your business.
