Bob Bennett, Vice President, Human Resources and CLO Global Organizational Learning Development and Services at FedEx Express
Are you a believer that leaders are born, or that they are ‘made?’ While both approaches have their proponents and critics, it is important to recognize that there is no one person, initiative or action that will ensure success.
Perhaps that’s why we find most Companies are so concerned with what is considered to be an impending ‘brain drain’ set to occur when the Baby-Boomer generation retires. Many are looking to the ‘best and brightest,’ implementing programs to develop High Potentials within their organizations to lead them into the future, while others are striving to find new and better ways to train current and future employees most effectively.
With team members in more than 220 countries worldwide, FedEx Express clearly understands the critical role of learning and leadership in a company’s success. Join Bob Bennett, Chief Learning Officer of FedEx Express, for a discussion on how business results are impacted by the knowledge, actions and leadership of every employee within a company and why it’s necessary to provide continuous learning opportunities that are practical and meaningful. To whom you provide this, how it is done, what areas are emphasized, and how they are emphasized will most definitely influence the success of these efforts and consequently the success of the business. It is imperative we understand the strategic objectives and leverage all programs and resources to shape a culture that delivers.
Key points will include:
- How to recognize business challenges, gaps and opportunities
- Why it’s necessary to develop ‘leaders’ on all levels throughout the organization
- How to integrate all efforts into a comprehensive culture that delivers
