Leading Edge Consortium 2021

Leading Edge Consortium 2021: A Virtual Event

Workshops: Sept. 30 thru Oct. 2  |  Consortium: Oct 7 thru 9

Talent is the number one stress point globally for CEOs with talent shortages being acutely felt across all industrial sectors, according to the Conference Board (2020) C-suite Challenge. The need for leadership development has never been more urgent. To survive in today’s environment, organizations need skillful and dynamic leaders and organizational capabilities different from those that helped them succeed in the past. Yet, what skills and how best to develop leaders for an uncertain future is the subject of many current debates within organizations, consulting firms, and academia.

SIOP is hosting the 2021 Leading Edge Consortium (LEC) on Leading Edge: Leadership Development to explore these crucial business challenges.
