  4. 4. e-Learning Services>> Fall 2011 speakers Bill Conaty on Why Smart Leaders put People Before Numbers “My main job was developing talent. I was a gardener providing water and other nourishment to our top 750 people. Of course, I had to pull out some weeds, too.” —Jack Welch In the fast-changing global marketplace, the ability to create a steady, self-renewing stream of leaders is the only way for an organization to gain a lasting, competitive edge. Bill Conaty, a GE veteran who helped shape the modern face of human resources, presents strategies to attract and nurture top talent, and develop business leaders. If talent is the leading indicator of whether a business is up or down (and it is)… do you know how to accurately judge raw human talent and develop that talent? Successful leaders put people before numbers for the simple reason that it is talent that delivers the numbers. Success comes from those who are able to extract meaning from the events and forces affecting a business, and who are able to look at the world and assess the risks to take and the risks to avoid. During this program you will learn: • A process to convert subjective judgment about a person’s talent into an objective set of observations that can predict success • How to assess the characteristics and capabilities of rising stars and new hires • How to map out a course for unleashing the full potential of a workforce and taking any business, in any industry, to the next level Bill Conaty was legendary for his ability to attract and nurture top tal- ent and develop business leaders. As senior vice president for Human Resources at GE from 1993 to 2007, he was responsible for all human resources activities for GE’s 330,000 employees worldwide. One of the most visible achievements was successfully managing the CEO suc- cession and transition process from the legendary Jack Welch to Jeff Immelt. The cover story in Human Resource Executive magazine hailed his handling of “one of the most important CEO succession challenges of the century.” In 2004, Bill Conaty was named Human Resources Executive of the Year. In great measure due to the management development and training programs Bill engineered, BusinessWeek declared that GE had “the most talent-rich management bench in the world.” Bill is the co-author, with Ram Charan, of The Talent Masters: Why Smart Leaders Put People Before Numbers which relays valuable principles for creating a steady, self-renewing stream of leaders. 4 To participate or for more information please call 781.402.5555 or visit www.linkageinc.com/disl.htm

  7. 7. linkageinc.comHIGH IMPACT LEADERSHIP MODEL™The foundation that drives the selection of our speaker lineup is the High Impact Leadership Model (HILM). TheHILM, co-developed by Linkage and Warren Bennis, is based on over 50 years of empirical observation into thebehavior and performance of hundreds of thousands of managers and leaders around the world.This observation culminated in a 2-year, longitudinal study comparing managers and leaders that consistentlydelivered better results with those who delivered only average results. The behavior-based competencies andskills found to differentiate the two sets make up the competencies, skills, and responsibilities in the model.Over the last 12 years, the HILM has been validated and refined through application with over 100,000thousand leaders and managers around the world making it one of the most reliable and valid leadershipframeworks available today.Each speaker within this series seeks to cover one of these areasbut will touch upon several others within their presentation. Manycompanies will identify the areas that need to be covered withintheir organization and combine our upcoming lineup with ourextensive on demand library to construct a customized,focused internal leadership series. 7
