11:45am-12:20pm Leading Horses to Water: Guiding Business Leaders from Strategy to Critical Roles that Drive Talent Strategy

General Session
We often think Strategic Workforce Planning begins with identifying the critical roles. This is a trap that sometimes we fall into as Strategic Workforce Planners, where business leaders tend to lean on HR for accountabilities in ‘making it happen’. Strategic Workforce Planning is so much more than making our business leaders accountable for their talent decisions, and getting them to connect their strategic goals to what they need their talent to execute on, maximizing the probability of successful execution of their strategy.
In this session, you will learn:
  • Consider various approaches to bring our leaders along the journey.
  • Discuss approaches and tools to help tie the strategy to capabilities and critical roles
  • Learn how to create the ‘aha’ moments that lead to action and accountabilities by the leaders themselves
