Webinar on: Unleashing Leadership Potential:
Have you cracked the code yet?

May 16, 2019 | 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Identifying and developing a talent pool of high potentials represents a critical investment of organizational time and resources. However, studies indicate that the outcomes of high-potential processes do not appear to be meeting the needed demand. A recent global study concluded that only 18 per cent of HR professionals surveyed rated their organization as strong in its available bench strength to meet future business needs.

When we examine common practices for identifying, developing and engaging high potentials, we quickly see that, unfortunately, important decisions are often undermined by a lack of due diligence, unclear or ambiguous criteria, questionable accuracy and absence of a larger plan that connects high-potential selection, development and engagement to business impact. This webinar will address:

  • The lost promise of potential: what goes wrong in most high potential programs.
  • Best practices in identifying potential leaders.
  • Investing in the right talent – moving from event-based learning to learning as a journey.
  • Getting the most out of your leadership pipeline.
  • What can you do immediately to improve your hi-pot process effectiveness
