New Leadership Book from The Encompass Group CEO Paints a Picture of the Evolving Employment Landscape and Turns it into “Art”

The ART of Talent, written by John Luke Spitler, guides companies on how to navigate the future of the workplace

DALLAS--()--John Luke Spitler, an accomplished entrepreneur, leadership expert and founder/CEO of a leading people-optimization firm, The Encompass Group, knows firsthand about talent strategy and business culture after more than 25 years serving companies across nearly every business sector to favorably shape the future of employment. With a passion for helping leaders create purpose-driven companies, Spitler turned his expertise and knowledge of the “artistry of the workforce” into an actionable, new book, "The ART of Talent” to explore the unprecedented factors reshaping the employment landscape.

This insightful new book explores the radical changes shaping the workforce and offers a roadmap for organizations to not only survive but thrive in the wake of drastic change. Spitler outlines how the resulting shakeup will affect the marketplace for decades to come but does it in a new and engaging way. Using analogies from the world of art – from Renaissance portraiture to Broadway musicals – Spitler creates an inspiring narrative filled with practical insights that can greatly benefit organizational leaders, hiring managers and human resources professionals.

“In a time fraught with labor challenges, every company leader and talent professional must read this book to intentionally move their organization beyond the science to the ART of talent management. John Luke beautifully weaves insights about various art pieces into potent lessons that emerge as the foundation for any sustainable talent management strategy—thoughtfully told, powerful, and essential,” said Kim Burak, Chief People Officer for CityVet.

“A ‘perfect storm’ is here when it comes to the employment landscape. Millions of employees are quietly quitting while demographic changes diminish the labor pool yet countless organizations are not ready for the workforce aftermath that will affect the marketplace for decades to come. This book is designed to help readers navigate the new marketplace with confidence, equipped to take their organization to new levels of excellence,” said Spitler.

The book encourages employers to recognize the unique artistry each employee brings to the workplace, align acquisition and retention efforts around shared purpose and values, and cultivate a supportive culture in which workers can flourish. Spitler shows readers how to adjust to unprecedented factors and provides actionable strategies for organizations to adapt and succeed in the new employment landscape.

With a blend of insightful analysis, practical advice, and real-life examples, "The ART of Talent" is a must-read for executives, HR professionals, and anyone interested in understanding and adapting to the future of work.
