Product description

From the Inside Flap

Leaders and managers of all stripes require new ways to tap into the unique talents and strengths of each employee in order to respond to a work environment driven by globalization, technological change and shifting demographics. Human equity, created by Trevor Wilson, is a bold new management model that goes beyond a group focus to individual differentiation, beyond diversity to talent differentiation, and beyond recognizing human capital to maximizing human equity.

Wilson's unique approach will benefit anyone who needs to engage human potential, including organizations facing significant skills shortages due to retirements, managers looking to leverage each employee's unique talents, and leaders aiming to substantially improve employee engagement. Human equity draws on the rapidly expanding field of positive psychology to enhance not only self-actualization for each employee, but also results for the business overall. Readers will learn how to increase employee engagement by building on each employee's innate strengths, unique abilities, personality, attitude, life experience, and virtues.

The Human Equity Advantage outlines eight core competencies that will guide leaders to create work environments where employees are valued because of, not in spite of, their individual differences and each person can be recognized and developed to strive for their highest potential. Readers will also have access to a complimentary self-assessment on these eight competencies, as well as a discount on a more detailed Equitable Leader Assessment package to compare their scores to the norms of a global database—a total $100 value.

The Human Equity Advantage gives you a fresh approach to employee engagement and talent optimization through a diversity lens. Never has there been a more important time to truly invest in your employees' talents. Never has there been a more important time to create more equitable leaders. Never has there been a more important time to understand The Human Equity Advantage.

From the Back Cover

Praise for The Human Equity Advantage

" Human equity challenges the boundaries of current thinking on diversity and inclusion because it represents a natural evolution from focusing on organizational barriers to empowering the individual and the organization collectively. By creating a platform where each person and organization can determine whether a person's unique skills and attributes are appropriately aligned and fit with the organization's objectives, it provides a real breakthrough strategy that will also address diversity fatigue."
—Stephen Shea, Managing Partner, People, Ernst &Young, Canada

" Trevor Wilson's experience and knowledge shine through in this important contribution, offering fresh perspectives focused on the value of equity in support of optimizing human capital—a must-read for leaders and other stakeholders."
—Dr. Fiona Bartels-Ellis, OBE; Global Head of Diversity, British Council

" The Human Equity Advantage is a must-read resource for leaders and managers who want to move past tired lectures about diversity and into a model that focuses on how to leverage the unique talents of every individual in their organization."
—Shelton J. Goode, Manager, Diversity & Inclusion, Georgia Power Company

" Wilson's human equity model advances diversity, crystallizes it as a manifestation of strengths of character that foster well-being, and imbues life with meaning and purpose. Intellectually stimulating, Wilson has crafted a holistic endeavor that explores, expresses, and enhances the very best attributes that make our work and life worthy of living."
— Tayyab Rashid, Ph.D., C.Psych, Health & Wellness Centre, University of Toronto Scarborough

" As Trevor explains, being inclusive starts with leaders going back to basics and remembering that people are individuals first and part of a group second. Our actions should value and respond to the needs of each individual to help them develop and contribute to their full potential and be all they can be."
—Bill McFarland, CEO and Senior Partner (Canada), PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
