PI Worldwide to Host Webinar on Driving Talent Acceleration through Leadership Readiness

Third webinar in series will focus on identifying up-and-coming leaders and preparing them for the future

May 19, 2015, 08:30 ET from PI Worldwide

WELLESLEY, Mass., May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PI Worldwide, a leader in science-driven insights that help optimize the performance and potential of individuals, teams, and organizations, today announced, "Driving Talent Acceleration through Leadership Readiness" webinar which will take place on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. EDT.

While leadership starts at the top, a highly functioning and successful organization fosters leaders at all levels. Yet – in typical companies – only 17% of leadership investments actually go toward the development of first- and second-level leaders, with the rest targeted exclusively at executives. With a large percentage of workers nearing retirement age, organizations that fail to bridge the gap between current and future leaders could risk their ability to operate efficiently and perhaps even lose their competitive edge.

Kip Kelly, of University of North Carolina (UNC Kenan-Flagler) and Jenna Filipkowski, PhD, of HCI  will share data on the current state of leadership and the implications for accelerating talent including High Potentials (HiPos), plus brand new research on global leadership competencies that drive success.

Mike Stewart of Predictive Group will then talk about how to mitigate risks and take the guesswork of out identifying and nurturing potential through the use of workforce analytics. Michelle Kozin of PI Worldwide will review best practices for growing leaders and developing talent through behavioral assessment data – from hiring through to career development.

The "Driving Talent Acceleration Through Leadership Readiness" webinar will take place on Thursday, June 4 at 3:00 p.m. EDT.  During the session, attendees will learn:

  • Current trends in leadership acceleration, plus global and HiPo leadership competencies
  • How to look beyond skillsets when hiring to understand a candidate's leadership potential
  • Benefits of an efficient, data-driven onboarding process to maximize leader effectiveness
  • Coaching guidelines to unlock higher levels of performance, faster
