This session will present key topics from the recent research study, Leaders Developing Leaders, which was developed in partnership by HCI and LHH. Through surveys and thought leader interviews, this research study has uncovered leading-edge findings on the topic of Leadership Development in the modern organization. Specifically, this study examined the “demographic gift” of seasoned leaders postponing retirement, and helped determine what the role of those leaders should be in developing new, emerging talent. The research has
also uncovered key barriers facing talent management practitioners today and has presented some recommendations for how to effectively remove them. The format of the session will be a combination of a presentation of key findings and statistics as well as a panel discussion with select thought leaders who contributed to the research itself.
Among the issues that will be discussed:
How Leadership Development programs have been impacted by the “Great Recession”
How organizations are leveraging seasoned leaders to serve as teachers and coaches for emerging leaders
What programs, systems, and processes should be in place to select, prepare, assess, and recognize leaders who effectively develop emerging leaders
