Across industries and organizations, companies face similar challenges on how to best meet talent needs for their organizations. At our most recent Leadership Development Conference, leadership experts and practitioners discussed research-based trends and pragmatic solutions to develop leaders at all levels. Yet, despite the intense focus and investment, the effectiveness of leadership development has been on the decline – even as its importance has grown.

Join us for this special webcast, which will share some of the best insights from this event. Using neuroscience, explore a next-generation strategy for defining, building, and embedding leadership skills across an organization. And then learn how top practitioners from McDonald’s and the US Olympic Committee accelerated the pace of leadership development in their complex organizations and transformed their managers into their best strategic asset.

Who Should Attend: HR practitioners from: for-profit, not-for-profit, and government agencies who are expected to build leadership capabilities and satisfy their organizations’ demands for “ready and able” leaders
