Research Lab Learning, development, and the strengths-based approach

Core issue is how organizations can optimally identify, use and develop knowledge, skills, and abilities of workers, building on workers’ strengths and self-initiated/directed learning.

Within this lab we focus on questions such as:

  • Which talent management approaches do organizations engage in and what are their effects?

  • How can organizations stimulate individual and collective strengths use at work, for example with strengths-based interventions?

  • How do employees manage their own learning and development in the context of their work and organization?

  • Which socialization practices do organizations engage in and what are their effects on employees and organizations?

  • How can organizations stimulate knowledge sharing, prevent knowledge hiding and enhance innovation and creativity to stay competitive?
