2017 Learning and Leadership Development Conference

Coaching the Workforce through a Business Evolution

September 18-20, 2017 | Chicago, IL

2017 Learning and Leadership Development Conference

We ask a lot from our leaders. Because most are promoted based on their achievements, seniority, or desire to advance in the organization, often there is little consideration given for their competencies in leadership skills and managing people. Effective leaders are no longer the “smartest people in the room” but are those who drive collaboration, coordinate workflows, and motivate the smartest people to their full potential.

Learning design and real-time access to information has never been more important in driving the organization forward. Curating relevant and timely information in combination with effective leadership coaching provides a solid basis for any organization to become agile and ready for a changeable marketplace.

This specialized conference will address the challenges of change, shifting culture, content curation and new leadership criteria and development — the critical parts every organization needs to compete in today’s marketplace.

Organizations are concerned about their leadership bench strength. 85% agree that there is an urgent need to accelerate the development of their leaders. Yet, less than half of respondents report that their companies have a formal process for developing high-potential employees. Get started at HCI's Learning & Leadership Development Conference.

Why Should You Attend?

Unless your current learning and leadership programs are directly tied to solving current business challenges, you may be doing more harm than good. Research has shown that high potential programs that consistently keep leaders away in classrooms or create projects that are unrelated to current business challenges significantly reduces short term performance, program engagement/retention, and provides no long term benefit.

HCI believes leadership development and learning programs must now be dynamic in their approach to nimbly shift direction, and manage the constant change that directly impacts strategic business challenges. This specialized conference will address the critical parts every organization needs to compete in today’s marketplace:

  • Challenges of change

  • Shifting culture

  • Content curation

  • New leadership criteria and development
