TIPS FOR CREATING A SUCCESSFUL 'TABLE'
FOR YOUR TALENT MANAGEMENT FORUM
* Do your homework. Bring data to reference,
success stories, updates to tax laws, etc. You may
never refer to them, but have them on hand.
* Prove your value. Understand your organizational
goals, so that you can be prepared to talk about
how you can influence the success of the company.
* Listen. Simple enough advice, but often forgotten.
* Encourage dialogue. Make discussions a
psychologically safe environment in which people
are willing to share.

* Be prepared to break the silence. Ask open-ended
questions.
* Don't fear feedback. Both positive and negative
are critical to progression.
* Don't get defensive.
* Own your seat at the table. Lean in, stay engaged,
and avoid distractions.
* Seek to understand every point that participants make.
* Prepare relevant questions in advance that will
generate dialogue.

"Once you begin making traction and operating
like a well-oiled machine, you will likely need fewer
meetings; monthly or quarterly may even be enough.
A lot of this will be determined based on your
company culture and how quickly you are looking to
impact change."

data. Use this opportunity to talk about the changing
landscape of immigration. Is this an opportunity to
help your company decide where may be the easiest
country in which to open a new plant, for example? Are
they considering an emerging market because talent is
affordable, but need to send some expats over? Often,
leaders don't understand how long it can take to obtain
work permits or that local and foreign hire rations exist
in certain countries. A global mobility team's expertise is
wide and often underutilized, and the wealth of knowledge across our supplier base and network is undiscovered. Educate and engage your business on the true
importance of successful talent management by keeping
your recommendations fresh and relevant."
A seat at the table, whether it be yours or theirs, is a
gift-an opportunity to influence and impact the success of your company, the success of your colleagues,
and your own personal success and satisfaction. With
an abundant opportunity to create your own table,
what will you serve? M

ENSURE YOUR TABLE STAYS FRESH
AND RELEVANT

Your mobility
team must be
aligned to the
organizational
goals and
build a
program that
supports
your company
culture.

You've built your table, you've determined the format
of your meetings, you've invited your guests, and
now it's time to ensure continued improvement and
innovation. Adding that regular polish to your table
so that it stays in smooth working order, and bringing
value to those who sit around it, is imperative to
establishing long-term success. Clontz recommends
that you "never get complacent. The world around
us is changing at the speed of light. A regular review
of your data and a listening ear will alert you to the
shifting needs of your organization. Stay alert. You
may need to refresh your policy. For example, do
you repeatedly get the same exception request that
is approved every time? Here is a great opportunity
to change your policy in a way that will positively
impact your employees and free up some of your
time-time you can use in more valuable ways. You
may need to rethink how you manage your suppliers,
too. Empower them, so that they become strategic
partners-a true extension of your team. Treat them
with respect; they are the front line and can make or
break an employee's onboarding experience."
Table getting a little worn? People aren't attending?
Topics are getting stagnant? Then consider inviting new
guests. A fresh perspective can be invaluable. Clontz
suggests, "This cannot be a conversation on just the
