Training and development of tomorrow’s leaders has never been more important. Many current leaders are close to retiring and organizations are unprepared for the transition to the next cohort of leaders. How can we prepare organizations for the future? What are some of the key skills missing in internal talent pools and how can companies better prepare them for success?

In this session, we’ll cover some must-have skills to develop the next generation of leaders to be better prepared to step into bigger roles, skills that today’s managers will need to succeed in the ever-evolving workplace.

Brain Exchange:

Come with your top tip, advice, tool and business cards to share with your colleagues during the chapter meeting and ring in the new year with teamwork, camaraderie and a spirit of learning. 90-second time limit. 

At this session you will:

  • Understand Changing Workforce Needs and How They Impact Company Growth
  • Learn the #1 Road Block to Developing Rising Talent
  • Identify Low-cost, No-cost Tactics for Building a Stronger Talent Pool from Within Your Four Walls
