Growing Talent for Succession: What Every Mid-Market Firm (and Larger Firms, Too) Should Know!
18 November, 2010 | ()
In turbulent times, strong and consistent leadership is more critical than ever…and developing your internal leadership talent pool is one of the most important strategies to drive the success of your business.
In this webcast, researchers and practitioners Barbara Galli and Eliska Meyers will discuss some of the highlights of The Conference Board’s recent report “Growing Talent for Succession,” with a special emphasis on the relevance of their findings for mid-market firms.
We will also benefit by hearing an anecdotal case study from Murray Ray, EVP and Chief People Officer & Laura Shirley, Manager of Organization Development of QAD Inc. They bring their experience in goal & competency- based development in a global, engineering based product company where development is in their DNA. Some questions to be addressed in the webcast include:
- Does your growing talent culture support the business strategy?
- Is your talent management centralized or decentralized? Can you be both?
- Transparency: To tell or not to tell?
Like all Conference Board webcasts, this will be an interactive event, with time to field questions from the listening audience.
Audience: Mid- and Senior-level managers responsible for Talent Management and Succession Planning strategies in Mid-Market and larger companies.
