Leadership demands today are incredibly dynamic. Unfortunately, the quality and quantity of leaders available are not sufficient to meet global marketplace demands. Worse, traditional leadership development is designed to work in homogenous and predictable environments, neither of which are applicable in the current work and macroeconomic environments. There are myriad leadership gaps that need to be filled, and we need a deeper, more impactful approach to leadership development to prep talent for the uncertainty and complexity they must deal with.
In this webinar, Sounding Board Vice President, Kevin Rockmael, and Megan Wang, CEO for theboardlist will help learning, HR, and talent leaders understand:
- What are the leadership gaps companies are facing today: talent development, retention and engagement, diversity and representation, succession planning, strategic thinking, etc.
- Why do learning and talent leaders need to prioritize identifying and closing these gaps?
- What types of development offerings talent leaders should adopt to develop the new breed of leaders businesses need
- Why leadership coaching, governance exposure, and board service should be evergreen facets of your formal leadership development strategy
