    Worldclass Leadership Development on a Shoestring Budget

    About the Program

    To meet company goals, organizations need capable leaders to guide the company. But due to unforeseen developments like “The Great Resignation” and pandemic-related financial pressures companies are facing, many organizations’ talent pipeline is not being developed because companies often address these challenges with cutbacks in training and development investments. This may provide short-term benefits, but often hinders sustained performance and growth.

    On the other hand, top performing companies, even with a limited budget, identify and nurture talent, have a formal talent review and planning process and actively manage a pool of successors for business-critical roles. This leads to weathering storms in the short term and positions these companies for long-term, sustained performance.

    Talent development professionals, as business partners, need to know how to develop and present a business case for Leadership Development.

    In this session, participants will:

    • Learn how to demonstrate the strategic and business value of implementing a leadership development program for minimal cost
    • Understand how to identify business needs and establish performance metrics to determine the ROI of the program
    • See how to partner with company leadership to uncover resources needed to develop a world class leadership program. 

    In short, this session will provide you with practical and effective ways to build and support “World-Class Leadership Development on a Shoestring Budget”.

      Combatting the Great Resignation:  Stay Interviews


    About the Program

    It is often standard practice to conduct exit interviews to gain information about why an employee is leaving your organization.  Many times, this information is too little too late and the opportunity to prevent unwanted turnover is lost.  Stay interviews are periodic discussions managers can have with their staff, that when done well, increase employee engagement and prevent unwanted turnover.

    • The true reasons employees leave – and they're not what you expect!
    • How to conduct a stay interview to build relationships and gain valuable insights
    • How to convey openness and receive feedback so employees feel comfortable sharing
