Preparing the leaders an organization needs for tomorrow requires making sure the business has the bench strength it needs today, as well as minimizing the risk of losing critical high potential talent
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) July 27, 2007
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Insala, a leading global provider of consulting and web-based technology for career services and talent management initiatives, announced today that Insala will sponsor HCI's Next Generation Leadership Development education and research track, one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Leadership community of interest, a community HCI considers critical for organizations seeking to build competitive advantage.
"Leadership development is a critical component of organization success," said Phillip C. Roark, President/CEO of Insala. "We are pleased to support the Human Capital Institute's Next Generation Leadership Development education and research track in order to share strategies that can lead to more effective processes with measurable results."
The track will explore what it takes to grow great leaders. Research shows that at companies with high return on equity, senior management is accountable for the success of leadership development practices. Top companies also have metrics in place to assess the effectiveness of leadership development programs.
"Preparing the leaders an organization needs for tomorrow requires making sure the business has the bench strength it needs today, as well as minimizing the risk of losing critical high potential talent," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President and Executive Director.
It requires leaders who can personally model coaching and engage the people they lead. Although the next generation of leaders may already possess networking and team skills, they will still benefit from coaching for business results. Successful organizations know that the competencies they develop in next generation of leaders must be directly aligned with business strategy.
Leaders who are accountable for assessing and developing the next generation must also use technology to determine readiness for stretch assignment, and formulate development plans that deliver solid return on investment.
This learning track will cover strategies for key transition points in next generation leadership development to ensure organizations have the right leadership talent in the right developmental opportunities at the right time.
A panel of expert advisors explores effective techniques to develop the next generation of leaders, examining the latest research and best practices. Currently, track advisors are Stan Smith, Director of Next Generation Initiatives - Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, Ellen Steinlauf, Managing Partner - Piermont Advisors, Karen Wright, Principal and National Practice Lead, Executive Coaching - Knightsbridge Human Capital Solutions and Lisa Thompson, Managing Director, Professional Services - Alta Mesa Group. Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources provide human capital professionals with information, insight, and tools to further leadership development in their organizations.
