Succession Strategies: Building Your Leadership Bench
Registration Will Open Soon!
The global environment is shifting faster than ever before. Business objectives change frequently. Knowledge work is increasing, and organizations are more matrixed and interconnected. With these new realities, leadership requirements are changing as well. For example, 31% of leaders are in newly created roles and all must be prepared to manage increasingly wide and frequently changing responsibilities. Despite significant time spent on high-potential development and succession management processes, only 28% of current leaders were pre-identified in a succession plan, and only 25% of organizations report they have the leadership bench they need, making succession management a foremost concern of today’s boards.*
The 10th Annual SIOP Leading Edge Consortium will be held October 17-18, 2014, at the Intercontinental Chicago O’Hare and is devoted to topics that are core to effective succession management, such as how to:
- Strategically align succession management with the organization’s goals and future direction, making it a business imperative
- Effectively manage succession globally
- Identify and develop high-potentials
- Build talent pools that are strong, broad and diverse
Make plans to join your colleagues in Chicago for a 1 ½-day event to learn about the latest insights and strategies for managing today’s high-potential and succession challenges. It is an opportunity not just to hear presentations but to exchange ideas and best practices with respected peers in an environment designed to foster learning and networking.
The consortium includes lunch on Friday and Saturday, breaks, and receptions on Thursday and Friday evening. Registration fee is $495 on or before August 29, 2014. After the early registration deadline the cost is $575.
