MEGA SESSION: High Potential Engagement: Key Strategies for Assessing, Engaging and Developing Top Talent

2014 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: This session will discuss new ways to engage and develop high potentials that align with your unique needs, goals, culture and strategy.

Key talent is the core of every corporation. It drives innovation, market share and organizational leadership. These high potential leaders pilot companies through economic downturns, create new products, and develop ancillary target markets. Retaining them is a corporate mandate and critical to the success of any organization, so knowing what makes them tick and finding ways to appeal to them is essential. But which opportunities really engage high potentials and which act to demotivate? Learn why shifting generational attitudes about transparency, career development and rewards sabotage high potential programs — and what to do about it. Robinson will share three reasons to revamp your succession planning programs — and how to do it as well as five strategies for assessing and engaging your high potential employees — so you can stay competitive in the New Economy.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Monday, June 23, 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:15pm
