Why You Should Attend!

Chances are good that you have everything you need to grow leadership greatness inside your organization right now. But if your organization is like many others, you might not be maximizing your assets. Looking across hundreds of succession systems, three things stand apart as “sleeping giants of succession” or the factors that enable or derail success in generating ready-now leaders.

We’ll explore these factors and exchange stories and insights at Argyle Executive Forum’s 2017 HR Think Tank, in partnership with Development Dimensions International. Join Human Capital Leaders from across the nation to discuss the three forces you can awaken to accelerate leadership growth.

The "2017 HR Think Tank: Awaken the Sleeping Giants of Succession to Accelerate Leadership Growth in New York" is proudly sponsored by:
