By 2025 27% of the working population will come from the GenZ population. When we look at the changing demographic, the age profile is shifting quite significantly. There is a greater influx of younger talent moving into the workplace and in years to come will be the future leaders of those respective organisations.
One of the greatest gifts and challenges however when working with young talent is the identification and nurturing of the skills and capabilities that lie within each individual. There are no shortcuts to development, some will develop quicker, some will possess natural ability or wisdom that belies their years. What is clear however, is that it requires great responsibility and commitment. A great example of nurturing and developing young talent is in the world of football, where talent can be signed or associated to a club from ages as young as 6 or 7.
In this episode we are joined by an individual who has devoted much of his career to developing young talent. Paul was a member of the Manchester United coaching team for over 25 years and was instrumental in the growth & development of several players who have gone on to represent Manchester United’s first team and win some of the highest honours in the game – including winning the World Cup with their respective countries. We will be tapping into Paul’s experience and his rich insights into the challenges and complexities of accelerating and nurturing the development of young talent.
