Talent Quarterly exists to help business leaders make smarter talent decisions so they can build better talent faster. We provide provocative, science-based, insightful articles by global management thought leaders. We serve as an “honest broker” of ideas to ensure that management fads and their purveyors are called to task.
Talent Quarterly is a partnership between the Talent Strategy Group and Hogan Assessments. Our firms are passionate about intellectual honesty, rigorous debate and the power of ideas to improve corporations and individuals. TQ provides a forum for those beliefs.

Yet few companies see this as a key, global business opportunity.
Psychology is often accused of being little more than common sense. In a way, this is true: most of the psychological advice found in popular sources is intuitive and obvious. At the same time, however, that advice is often unsupported by any scientific evidence. This is particularly true for the self-help industry, which has hijacked psychology for mass consumption.
