Cincinnati-Based Human Capital Institute Launches New Certification Course on Leadership and Succession Planning
New course to help HR leaders accelerate leadership readiness with innovative approaches to succession and leadership development
CINCINNATI (May 24, 2017) - Human Capital Institute (HCI), an organization committed to continuous learning for HR professionals, today announced that its newest certification course, Leadership Development & Succession Strategist (LDSS), is now open for enrollment. The LDSS Certification Course will equip HR professionals with the knowledge, tools and resources they need to bolster talent pipelines for critical roles and better prepare for future business challenges.
“The availability of a strong pipeline of capable and ready talent is a strategic imperative for organizations wishing to grow or maintain a competitive advantage,” said Courtney Vital, Chief Learning Officer at HCI. “Skill and talent shortages leave the organization vulnerable to vacancies and present a significant threat to a business’s ability to thrive. The LDSS course is designed to help HR leaders align leadership readiness strategy with the business strategy, and build organizational capability and sustainment for continuous leadership development for all critical roles, even beyond the C-Suite.”
According to research from HCI and UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, 85% percent of strategic HR professionals agree that there is an urgent need to accelerate the development of their leaders. But it’s not just leadership--only 40% of senior leaders report that their current high-potentials can meet future business needs.
HCI’s LDSS certification course provides a framework for HR to align leadership readiness strategies with business goals, develop meaningful analytics, and build robust talent pipelines for future growth. This two-day training course is geared toward early- and mid-career HR practitioners and senior-level HR leaders alike who are looking to implement a new approach to the identification, preparation, and deployment of talent for critical roles. Participants will explore HCI’s seven-step model for leadership readiness, engage with case studies from leading organizations like Mastercard and GE, and walk away with the tools and resources necessary to enable practical and sustainable application in the workplace.
The course is also available through HCI’s Corporate Training program for organizations seeking to upskill entire teams on-site. Visit www.hci.org/ldss-course.
