  • LDL is an 6 month learning process for high potential leaders at TJX who are positioned to succeed to the VP level. It will be a metrics driven program linked to tangible results; it will accelerate leadership readiness of the individuals AND add business value. Specifically:Project teams will be sponsored by Division Presidents and chartered to work on business imperative projects.Talent Leads will coaches teams through learning process and beyond.Participants will develop skills in the areas of business & financial acumen, interpersonal competence, strategic thinking, leading change, spanning boundaries, and self awareness. Participants will work in teams with a business case simulation over the course of 3 rounds.Participants will develop a close network of trusted peers across the business with whom they will collaborate, share new ideas, and learn insights regarding the business.
  • And to wrap up today– I’d like to point to the Harvard Business Review…and a recent HBR article titled Why Sustainability is the Key Driver of Innovation.The piece was written by the great business strategist and author, C.K. Pra-ha(accent)-lad — who sadly died last week. He argued thatthe current economic system has placed enormous pressures on our planet while catering to the needs of only about a quarter of the ppl in the world. That traditional approaches to business will collapse, and companies will have to develop innovative solutions”He said – “This will happen only when executives recognize a simple truth – Sustainability = Innovation”.I’d like to end there. We look forward to having you at our next Leader Lens on May 26 with David McConville.Thanks for joining us – and I’ll turn this back to Michael Tirrell
