2018 HR Think Tank: Rethinking Leadership Potential
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.
