Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast sofa by Claire Chandler, President & Founder of Talent Boost!

Now, with more than half of new leaders failing within their first 18 months due to a lack of preparedness, Claire Chandler is a qualified HR leadership expert who helps companies implement a repeatable, scalable system that turns new leaders into performance accelerators by helping them to find their "Why".

Claire fixes the “plug and pray” method of deploying talent so that companies can become revenue-generating machines.  Sometimes this can involve substituting what businesses perceive to be the "best" talent for the right talent!

The President and Founder of Talent Boost, Claire leverages over 25 years of experience in people leadership, human resources, and business owners to boost leadership alignment and effectiveness. She has extensive expertise in organizational effectiveness, executive coaching, leadership development, communication strategy, employment branding, succession management, employee onboarding and engagement, talent pipelines, and strategic planning.

Claire is also the author of The Whirlpool Effect: Inspire the FLOW that Boosts Company Performance and co-author of Leading Beyond A Crisis: A Conversation About What’s Next.
