June 2013 (avaliable through May 27th, 2014)
Program length: 60 minutes
Leaders of today and tomorrow must be better than the ones they replace because the challenges are greater, the speed faster, the competition tougher, and the marketplace increasingly global. The next generation of leaders must be agile, resourceful in the face of change, and above all, able to learn from experience. People with this ability perform well under first-time, challenging conditions. These people are learning agile.
In this program, Vicki Swisher, Senior Director of Intellectual Property Development for Korn/Ferry International and author of Becoming an Agile Leader, leads a thought-provoking, interactive discussion about strategies you can adopt to ensure that your succession pipeline is filled with high-potential employees ready to deliver growth for your organization in the challenging years ahead. Building on over 20 years of data on which behaviors predict leadership success, Korn/Ferry is the trusted partner top organizations rely on for research–based, experience-tested leadership development and talent management solutions.
In this session you will explore how to:
- Use learning agility as an input for differentiated leadership development and succession planning
- Distinguish between high potentials and high functional/technical professionals
- Develop learning agility through formal development programs and “assignmentology”
- Embed learning agility into the language of organizational leaders
