We all have careers – whether we are self-employed or work for others. Our career is the tool we use to earn our daily bread. It is also the way society defines us whether we like it or not ….the first thing people ask as is “What do you do?’ A career serves as a means for self-expression and self-actualisation.

The Ant and the Corporation …. Talent Management Gone Wrong ….
