    Recent trends in the world of work are placing extraordinary demands on the ability of organizations to quickly evolve.  Talent is at the heart of this evolution and is widely recognized as the key differentiator. Identifying and preparing high potentials is critical, but development programs need to focus on more than leadership. Making career development and mobility an integrated part of your process is the key to driving the most value from your pipeline development efforts.

    Millennials are not a problem; they’re a marketing construct. Young people today are no different than they were throughout history – challenging the status quo, questioning authority and seeking to make their mark. In this session, we’ll debunk the myths that keep corporations in a frenzy. We’ll focus on how to hire, view and treat millennials. Here’s the kicker: it’s nothing you shouldn’t already be doing for the smart, independent talent across your company.
