  • Executive Buy-In Resources People to select Why?? As HR pros we need to move from (1) talking about what were and are, what we hate, do not have control over… And transition into what we want to be and what we DO and ACT
  • People want to mix in strategy and metrics when Leadership is really about providing people the environment to allow them to do their best work and for you to get out of the way!
  • How we connect and tie to the organization and you
  • CEOs are not the only leaders - When I hear “what are they thinking” I ask: “Are you a part of the organization CEO story I asked the question - Are leaders born or made?
  • Activity: Move to 3 parts of the room Roll up a piece of paper Question: Are leaders born or made? If they are born why have training If they are made then how/who decides which people get what opportunities.

  • Presentation/Talk Disclaimer
    • Leadership is a broad and evolving discipline that has many definitions and perspectives. If you were to do a query on the topic you would literally find thousands of definitions, approaches and studies supporting and dis-proving each distinct concept.
    • Among the over-arching ideas are NeuroLeadership, Primal, Authentic Leadership, Corporate and Non-Profit Leadership, Citizen-based leadership, etc. etc.
    • With this talk we will discuss approaches, recommendations and practices to help begin to create a leadership development based program. This presentation is meant to give insights into these ideas as we all should be aware that there is no one silver bullet. Each organization will need to define what outcomes and goals should be accomplished.
    • * When attending this session understand that the slide order is a guide and may not be followed as the needs of the audience may move in various directions. I cannot guarantee that after leaving this session that you will receive all the answers. What I can guarantee is that you will leave with at least one practical idea on how to begin and/or ReThink your Leadership Development efforts!

  • LOOK AT DATA?
  • Organizations with the highest quality leaders were 13 X more likely to outperform their competition in key bottom-line metrics (i.e. financial performance). Comparison : When leaders reported current leadership quality as poor, only 6 % of them were in organizations that outperform their competition .
