Pressure around talent mobility is intensifying with human resources leaders hustling to build greater and deeper leader bench strength. As many organizations have shifted their priorities and structures during the past several months, the need to discover a robust pool of diverse leadership talent to handle current and future challenges is increasing. Companies need to identify the best leaders for different contexts and new critical roles. During this session we will explore how to objectively identify a diverse leader bench to match the context in which leaders are now forced to operate.

During this webcast you will learn how to:

  • Identify the potential of current and future leaders against key contextual challenges.
  • Create leadership pipelines that are prepared for rapidly changing sets of leadership roles.
  • Match best-fit leaders into roles with increased precision and confidence.
