San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
Interaction Associates will share best practices and insights into its innovative leadership development strategies at The 2008 Conference Board Leadership Development Conference. Interaction Associates will present with executives from STP Nuclear Operating Company and Amylin Pharmaceuticals on how IA is helping develop leaders in these organizations. The Conference is scheduled to take place at the Hotel del Coronado on Coronado Island in San Diego June 5-6, 2008.
Companies that are striving to innovate and grow are discovering that they need not only more and better leaders faster, but a different kind of leader. The 2008 Conference Board Leadership Development Conference provides lively discussions as experts, thought leaders and leading practitioners share their best practices and thoughtful insights on where Leadership Development is headed, how to develop business leaders, and what needs to change.
"This year's conference is focused on Building Leaders and Organizational Capability through Leadership Development," said Jean McNulty of The Conference Board. "Interaction Associates is part of an outstanding roster of CEOs, thought leaders, researchers, and top-notch Leadership Development innovators to present at the conference - an annual event that participants rate very highly for timely topics, speakers and actionable ideas," McNulty added.
Mike Meier, Vice President, Shared Services, STP Nuclear Operating Company, will present a session called "Developing Leaders to Change the Culture and Sustain Excellence." Meier will describe how STP used leadership development innovations from Interaction Associates to turn its performance around in record time. The company went from being shut down by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to a world-class facility. Meier will show how the company has continued to thrive, despite the ups and downs of the industry, transitions of leaders, and changes in their ownership. Interaction Associates President and CEO Linda Dunkel will co-present.
Separately, Debbie Rocco, Chief Learning Officer of Amylin Pharmaceuticals, will present on the topic, "Developing Leadership Capability across the Organization." Attendees to this session will learn how Interaction Associates helped Amylin, a leading biopharmaceutical company, set a powerful learning agenda to establish leadership capability across the organization. By leveraging dialogue (having a common language), shared meaning (clear understanding of organization goals), and social connections (peer coaching and support), Amylin is building crucial organizational leadership capability. The focus is on key areas of excellence including decision making, coaching and strategic thinking. Michael Ansa, Senior Consultant, Interaction Associates will co-present.
