The Talent Edge
A Behavioral Approach to Hiring, Developing, and Keeping Top Performers
— Stephen McIntosh, Program Manager, Cicso Systems, Inc.
"I cannot afford to hire an employee that does not fit in or is less than fully productive. David Cohen has provided us in The Talent Edge a 'how to' which will ensure a successful hiring process. A must-read in today's competitive talent hunt."
— Robin Wohnsigl, President, Air Canada Technical Services
"Both impressive and comprehensive, The Talent Edge shows why David Cohen is a leading authority on behavioral interviewing. This is a book no one involved in the hiring process should be without. Outstanding in both its scope and practical application."
— Wendy Parkes, Senior Manager, Career Development, Emfisys Division, Bank of Montreal
"I shudder to think how much time, energy, and money is wasted by managers who still go by a 'gut instinct' when hiring people! I'm recommending The Talent Edge to all my clients. It's a solid, meat-and-potatoes book— straightforward, thorough, practical, and useful."
— BJ Gallagher Hateley, coauthor of A Peacock in the Land of Penguins and What Would Buddha Do at Work?
"In The Talent Edge, David Cohen demystifies behavioral interviewing, which is arguably the most popular selection screening tol used in North America. It is an engaging primer for the manager confused by his or her poor choices in hiring."
— Richard E. Boyatzis, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Organizational Behavior, Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University
"The Talent Edge is a sharp, thorough, and practical guide for line managers and human resources professionals eager to ensure they're getting the best and the right talent for their organizations. Cohen's approach is well grounded in research but is rich with real-world examples and immediately applicable tools for those engaged in the war for talent."
— Lori Byran, Consultant, and Former Leadership Development Manager for Hallmark Cards, Inc.
