At Talent Science Lab, we help people and organizations through applied research on talent management and career development. We focus on the people side of business - from employment to engagement, from potential to performance.
Maren Dollwet Waggoner is not only one of the most accomplished, sharp, and resilient professionals I know, she is also likely the kindest person you will ever meet. Maren's academic background includes a Masters in I/O Pyschology, as well as a PhD in Organizational Behavior from Claremont Graduate University. Today she lectures as an adjunct professor at CGU and serves as the Director of HR & Talent Management at Ticketmaster. I feel fortunate to not only consider Maren an inspiring role model but also a good friend. I am especially appreciative of her taking the time to share her wisdom with us in this interview. We touched on extremely timely topics--changes undergoing performance management, data analytics, her advice for aspiring HR professionals, and much more.
