As baby boomers retire, the stakes are higher than ever for developing leaders in 2012. Learn how leading-edge companies are developing their high potential and emerging leaders and the major competency gaps these next generation leaders have to make a successful transition into the C-suite. We’ll share updated, research-based revelations from our recent Trends in Executive Development survey that provides a blueprint for learning professionals and leaders to develop their workforce for the future. This webcast will include the most significant trends in High Potential and Emerging Leader Development, the major competency gaps of next generation leaders, and which strategies work most effectively to accelerate development and prepare rising leaders for the challenges ahead. Finally, we will take a deep dive into and demonstrate how to develop the competency of Critical Thinking, a foundational skill for new leaders. We’ll end with a Q&A session with a senior line leader for a large publicly traded company who delivers best practices in driving learning throughout his organization.
