As talent managers, our goal is for our companies to manage their talent assets as carefully as they manage their balance sheets. We set our own agendas, conduct surveys and do a variety of activities designed to maximize the sharing of best practices and exchange of ideas. We focus both on longer-term strategic issues as well as shorter-term more immediate issues of prime interest to our members. Members are the senior executive leading talent management strategy; they are positioned at Corporate HQ (home office) in a Center of Expertise. Core responsibilities include several of the following topics, all of which we discuss during meetings:
- Succession planning
- Executive Development for the “top 200”
- Executive assessments
- Talent reviews
- High potential development programs
- Developmental movement/mobility
- Employee engagement
- Executive recruiting/retention/rewards

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the Council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of Council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.

- Virtual communities that extend learning opportunities through a variety of online forums and other resources
The Council offers a unique opportunity to have open, candid conversations with peers from numerous industries. I take home more gems from a single council meeting than I do from several conferences. More importantly, these gems have a person that I can call to explore the learning at a deeper level.
