We are blessed to operate across so many different countries with diverse cultures mostly in Africa but in Europe and the United States as well where the term Human Capital means so many different things to different people.
At Quazar, Human Capital is all about the development of talent as opposed to the management of Human Resources.
Paul drives our Human Capital output and his passion and purpose is ‘realising the talent in others’. Sounds kind of airy-fairy but as Paul notes “we all have the ability to be or do whatever it is in life that we want to do but in so many cases our socialisation and ego have driven down our own belief in our talent.
Developing people, whether though training, coaching, mentoring, advising or consulting is about exposing our people to the best of knowledge and ensuring that they are inspired to action. How are you inspiring your teams to action? If you are struggling to inspire yourself to action, change, betterment then it will never happen in your organisation, section, department or among your colleagues.
If we can ask the right question then we are on the way to getting the right answer and these nearly always come from within. Sometimes a quote will resonate with you and remind you that you are not alone – these two arrived in my inbox today:
“One of the most difficult things is not to change society, but to change yourself.” – Nelson Mandela
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” – Arthur Ward
We often demand of our society (business) to change without first changing ourselves and then we do it without inspiring teaching.
