As your organization’s leaders retire, are your future leaders ready? Have they mastered the skills essential for success in the 21st century workplace - critical thinking, leadership, and business acumen? In many organizations these skills are in short supply. Learning professionals have an opportunity to position their organization for success by developing leaders who possess good critical thinking skills and business acumen. This webcast will show training and development professionals how to develop these competencies within a strategic talent management program. We will share a model for integrating critical thinking and business acumen into corporate competency models and walk through two examples of how companies are building these competencies within their workforce.
Participants will learn:
Why critical thinking and business acumen are essential competencies of 21st century leaders and “building blocks” for other skills
How companies are building these 21st century competencies in their organization by seeing two examples
How these competencies can by developed at different leadership levels (e.g., individual contributors versus senior managers)
