Workshop Session | Wednesday, June 27 | 5:00 – 5:45 p.m.
Track: Leadership Development

The promise of leadership potential has been lost. Too often organizations cling to exclusionary potential practices that leave them with dried-up talent pools. Find out how your company can surface, activate and accelerate potential across individuals and teams throughout the organization. Learn to focus development on high-value, transferable skills that get all associates in the game faster and enable them to quickly adapt to changing business challenges. Leave this session with a completely new strategy to really unleash all potential—the collective genius that delivers financial value beyond what each individual contributes.

What will you learn?

  • Conduct an audit of your organization’s leadership potential strategy.
  • Assess and alter your training strategy to surface, activate and accelerate potential to meet the new business context.
  • Accelerate development to get more people in the game faster.
  • Build transferable skills that enable employees to become more agile.
