22nd Annual Leadership Development Conference

The Future of Leadership Development in a Rapidly Changing World
JUNE 09 - 10, 2016 | RENAISSANCE BLACKSTONE CHICAGO | CHICAGO, IL

MAY 05 - 06, 2016 | NEW YORK MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN | NEW YORK, NY


June 09 - 10, 2016

The war for talent was declared before the turn of century.  Companies, large and small, continue to grapple with attracting and retaining talent, and developing a future pipeline of leaders in a world that changes rapidly.  This session will focus on the approaches of several companies who make tradeoffs required between high Tech/High Touch and aligning their talent strategy with the strategies of HR and their respective organizations.

The trends in organizations continue to spark debate about how to best address talent needs. The pendulum swings from centralized to decentralized structures and putting resources closer to the business.  HR leaders actively balance strategic goals and tactical investments in developing a pipeline of leaders who can effectively create meaningful cultures and lead in the next decade.  Debate intensifies as cost constraints force organizations to reconcile the sustained impact of high-tech and high touch programs.  The Conference Board offers a unique blend of theory, data and practice to create a forum for meaningful discussion about the future of leadership development.

AGENDA
JUNE 09 - 10, 2016
RENAISSANCE BLACKSTONE CHICAGO

June 08, 2016

As demands from a diverse workforce evolve, stakeholders’ expectations accelerate, and more competitors disrupt business, organizations are struggling amid complex roles, unclear accountabilities, and poor leadership capability. The result? Strategies are not successfully executed; mediocre performance leads to poor results and disengages the workforce. Now what?

Many organizations are investing time and dollars to reinvent their approach to performance management. But executing strategy requires focusing on the leader’s role in creating a high-performance culture. Are your leaders unable to translate high-level strategies into specific actions for themselves and their teams in a sustainable way? Do they struggle to focus their energy on the right activities and at the right time to drive team performance? Are they developing team performance through coaching, timely feedback, and meaningful discussions on growth for the future?

To translate strategy into reality, you need an integrated approach to drive and develop a culture of performance and accountability. In this pre-conference seminar, learn:

• The 4 critical elements to ensure strategy execution: focus, alignment, engagement, and metrics
• The leader’s role in translating strategy into results—and the skills required to get there
• How leaders can engage in conversations with their teams to not just drive their performance, but develop performance and growth
