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.

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.
