Identify and Build your Leadership Talent for M&A Success

Those involved in M&A transactions understand the importance of leadership, though they often underestimate how critical the leadership aspect can be, and are unsure what can be done about it. A new research study examines leadership practices in M&A transactions that are drivers of deal success, including different aspects of leadership assessment, selection, and development initiatives related to M&A activities. The key leadership behavior and skills at each phase of the M&A transaction are also discussed.

Talent Management: Moving Individual Contributors into Leadership Roles

Comcast, like many other large companies, executes leadership development programs to support high potential talent in moving to the next level within the company. Although these programs are full of great content, they won’t achieve their goal if the right people, at the right time, aren’t selected

and the talent isn’t effectively deployed into new roles upon completion. In this session, Comcast will share the process they have developed on how to effectively move talent from the frontline into leadership positions. Some of the strategy’s components include talent reviews, participant selection process and broad-based succession planning (talent pools).

Onna O'Meara, Sr. Manager - Emerging Leadership, Comcast

An Approach to Coaching: Put That Hammer Down

"When you have a hammer, everything starts looking like a nail."  Solving stubborn performance problems, coaching “high potentials”, and supporting diversity requires a new paradigm for leaders to coach more effectively.  Kristi will walk through G3’s experience with converting to a strengths-based coaching model. The identification of individuals' personal strengths and preferences - through any number of proven assessments - Clifton Strengths, Belbin Team Roles, MBTI, and more - provides a unique opening for more inspiring, confidence-building, and effective development that encourages individuals to "put down that hammer" and expand their use of other tools.

Kristi Marsella, Vice President, Human Resources, G3 Enterprises

3:15 – 4:00 pm
Concurrent Session

Talent Management: Using HR Analytics to Drive Employee Engagement and Performance

The idea of employee engagement has been around for decades; both academic and applied research shows that employee engagement drives better business performance. However, taking data analysis and turning it into practical application has eluded many companies. In this session, you will learn how Shell translated HR analytics into meaningful actions that drive better business and safety performance.

Sue Lam, HR Diagnostics, Shell

Total Recall: Evidence that Film Improves Learning

SES provides reliable and secure satellite solutions, pushing through breakthroughs in connectivity and their impact for people worldwide.

Information retention is one measurable method to assess the effectiveness of a program. Using film in training is an effective method to maximize information retention… and accelerate your learning to 2020! This session will focus on research that found that information retention is significantly increased with the use of film. You will learn the key elements of the global study, gain an appreciation for which films may work better than others, and walk away with an evidence-based tool for using film in talent development programs.
