In a tight talent market, new publication targets needs of senior business leaders.

The first issue of CTDO magazine features Comcast Cable's CTDO, Martha Soehren.

All senior leaders and executives—regardless of role, function, or industry—have one common interest: developing and managing talent in today’s complex business climate,

In a competitive business landscape, organizations need the right people in the right jobs. And senior business leaders need to be thinking strategically about their people and how to keep them engaged. The Association for Talent Development’s (ATD) new publication, CTDO magazine, was created specifically for chief talent development officers and other C-suite leaders whose responsibility includes leading the talent development efforts in their organizations.

CTDO is an example of ATD’s commitment to serve all facets of the talent development profession and the practitioners who do the work of developing others every day. The unique needs of C-suite executives require content and resources that are keenly focused on the strategic and the long view—the questions, trends, and ideas that are going to shape the talent development field and by extension the work that happens in organizations.

“All senior leaders and executives—regardless of role, function, or industry—have one common interest: developing and managing talent in today’s complex business climate,” said Ann Parker, who leads ATD’s Senior Leaders and Executives community of practice. “CTDO’s content illustrates how engaging talent positively affects an organization’s bottom-line productivity, social impact, and global reach.”

Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect in each issue:

  • CTDO spotlight: This will spotlight a chief talent development officer, and will include commentary from another C-suite colleague, showing how the two collaborate to achieve business success.
  • Hot topic feature: This feature article will unpack one of the macro-level “big” ideas that will affect the world of work in the future and that talent development executives need to consider and deal with now.
  • Debate: This article will contrast two diverging viewpoints on a popular practice or theory.
  • Prove It: A practical column focused on how to effectively measure the impact of talent development.
  • Confessions From the C-Suite: A different perspective from the typical “happily ever after,” this article will focus on lessons learned from a particular issue that a chief talent development officer was trying to resolve.
