Why You Should Attend!



The nature and pace of work has changed, and mounting business pressures have made it risky to rely on a small set of high potential players to push organizations forward. Not only are many of these “hi-po” leaders facing unsustainable levels of stress and burnout, but organizations are ignoring their largest source of potential, which is spread out and hidden among your broader workforce not identified as hi-pos. Research also shows that while 65% of companies have high-potential leadership programs, 68% say they are not very effective. Perhaps the solution isn’t more leaders, but more leadership. 

This interactive session will challenge everything you thought you knew about leadership potential and start a discussion on a better approach. Join us as we explore: 

  • Why leadership potential isn’t what it used to be
  • Why high-potential programs aren’t working 
  • How to surface, activate, and accelerate leadership potential 

We’ll exchange stories and insights at Argyle Executive Forum’s 2018 HR Think Tank: Rethinking Leadership Potential, in partnership with the DDI team. Join Human Capital Leaders from across the nation to discuss better ways to unleash your organization’s leadership potential.

    read more »

    Session topics include, but are not limited to:

    • When it comes to potential, high-potential programs have been the go-to answer for the past decade. In fact, research shows that 65% of organizations have high potential programs, but 68% don’t think they’re working well. What is you/your organization’s view and approach on potential? What’s working, what’s not? 
    • Because the future has become increasingly difficult to predict and potential is less about a single role (e.g. next CEO) and more about their capacity to quickly accelerate towards a range of different possibilities, I’ve heard the question of ‘potential for what’ surface. In the past, this has rightly focused on potential to be a leader but going forward that might be too narrow. How do we start to expand our view of potential? 
    • In terms of unleashing potential throughout your organization, there are two populations that are commonly discussed in terms of untapped potential – millennials and diversity. What are you doing (or preparing to do) to maximize these people in your organization? 
    • What challenges are you facing (or what have you learned) about shifting the focus away from just talent identification to talent development and driving bench strength/readiness? 
    • How have you tackled measuring the impact or results of identifying and developing potential? 
    • How do you see the role HR and business leaders differ in terms of unleashing potential?
