12A – Tailoring Talent Cultivation: A Differentiator

Monday, March 23rd

About the Session

Ensuring the right fit of talent, especially for those in leadership roles, determines the ability to effectively deliver on organizational strategies and goals. Investing in a structured and intentional talent development approach drives strong business results and increased levels of engagement. In this session, participants will examine a case study to learn how to create a talent development process. The case study will highlight goals and objectives, approach, process, tools, resources, outcomes, lessons learned and next steps. There will be time allotted for small group discussions about the applicability of the process to personal environments. The session will culminate with an interactive question and answer segment for participants and speakers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the process of assessing organizational talent needs, understanding the current state of talent development and creating a talent development approach to drive successful results.
  • Describe sample tools and resources to support a talent development process.
