Growing talent is a top priority for most companies, yet identifying sure-fire solutions is daunting. No wonder “growing talent internally” was the number one strategy cited by CEOs in The Conference Board CEO Challenge® 2013 survey, to address their top challenge: human capital. Many leaders are frustrated that their company’s talent growth has not kept pace with the needs of the business, despite considerable investments. Is there an overlooked and practical solution? Yes.

Join us for our August Book Discussion webcast as we welcome Wendy Axelrod, Ph.D. and Jeannie Coyle, Managing Partners of Talent Savvy Manager, LLC, who will discuss their book, Make Talent Your Business: How Exceptional Managers Develop People While Getting Results. Expect to learn why and how your managers are the ultimate resource for internal talent growth, using the work itself as the source of development. Wendy and Jeannie went in search of managers who were exceptional at developing their workforce (from companies such as Corning, Intel, Merck, Kraft, Siemens, Marriott, Microsoft, and Wells Fargo). Their book, Make Talent Your Business, offers the five practices that these managers have used, and that are currently being adapted by many other companies, to spur talent growth.

Brian Powers, Ph.D., senior fellow, human capital at The Conference Board will moderate this discussion, important to any business manager who is looking for methods to improve performance, increase engagement, and develop significant new capabilities in their employees.

Audience: Human Capital professionals charged with talent management, employee engagement, leadership development, strategic human resources, strategic workforce planning, workforce readiness, diversity & inclusion, or human capital analytics would benefit from this webcast.
