“All of us do not have equal talent yet all of us have an equal opportunity to develop our talents.” – Ratan Tata
Talent is a special, unusual, natural ability or skill to do something well. Talented person is a person of exceptional aptitude and a considerable genius, having an obvious elegance or knack to accomplish a particular task.Talented person is a possessor of positive characteristics. Without difficulty and swiftly he can learn from the situations or from the environment and succeed in his goals quicker than the one who is not. The more he’s talented, the greater will be his achievements. It’s the talent that paves you the ways illumining for a while the all enveloping darkness, while leading you towards success. Nonetheless, this quality can be prolific and rewarding if you determine your strength with your goals while developing your abilities.
Indeed, every human being has talents, what needs to be done is that the talent should be made conspicuous and abilities should be developed. A person who discovers his talents can succeed by determining his strength and ability with his goals and the one who fails to do so cannot. Discovering the talents is treading towards the path of success and being disinclined to do it is to deprive of success. Another important aspect is the development of abilities based on the assessment of existing strength and weakness, so that one can achieve his goals on the basis of his developed abilities. We must know the fact that a gem also needs to be carved and polished for use as jewelry and decoration. Once a person discovers his potential and develops his ability, there is no looking back. He will find his own ways and means.
Thus, discover your talents, realize your strength, release your potentials and meet the opportunities, showing appreciation that they are there to allow you to develop more in the work place. It must be noted that one of the significant objectives of Human Resource Talent Management is to promote potentials of the employees.
There is no denying the fact that success or failure of a business pivots on the quality as well as the extent of relationship it preserves with its people. In view of the above, talent management is implemented, so that the talents of the employees may be retained, their latent abilities be enhanced or brought to the limelight, while giving a boost to the business. It also refers to the process of developing and integrating new workers, developing and retaining current workers, and attracting highly skilled workers to work for the organization.
What is talent management? “Talent Management is a set of integrated organizational HR processes designed to attract, develop, motivate, and retain productive, engaged employees. The goal of talent management is to create a high-performance, sustainable organization that meets its strategic and operational goals and objectives.”
Talent management is also a process of developing and nurturing the talents of the employees, improving their skills and knowledge while constantly building their organizational competencies.

It is through the process of talent management that an organization may be benefited from developing and retaining the employees and it benefits the employees while developing their skills, so that they can meet their goals. Besides, the organization can save a great deal of money by not only retaining the talents of the employees, but also increasing their performance while implementing performance management process. By doing so, production and efficiencies tend to be increased and the employees will get satisfaction. This is how the concept of talent management has a good cause for the total organizational development.
