Who is talentMN?

TalentMN provides inspiration and proven resources for people and organizations seeking new paradigms that can inspire a winning culture of clarity and success. We believe that digging into the foundational mission statements and rediscovering the building blocks that originally fueled the companies success is paramount. But this foundation needs to be paired with the realities of today’s workplace and workforce.

We need you. We need your honest voice. We need your ideas. Join our movement and together let’s re-imagine the way we foster, engage, and empower talent in Minnesota and beyond.TalentMN is a dedicated collection of change-makers that believe in disrupting the broken mold of out-dated people strategies.

Ultimately, We believe that people leaders deserve the knowledge and technologies that turn customers into champions, vendors into partners, employees into evangelists, and shareholders into flag-bearers.
