Leadership demands today are incredibly dynamic. Unfortunately, the number of quality leaders is not sufficient enough to meet global marketplace demands. Worse, traditional leadership development is designed to work in homogenous and predictable environments, neither of which are applicable in the current work and macroeconomic landscapes. There are myriad leadership gaps that need to be filled, so we need a deeper, more impactful approach to leadership development to prep talent for the uncertainty and complexity they must deal with. Join Sounding Board vice president, Kevin Rockmael, and CEO for theBoardlist, Megan Wang, to hear how you can navigate these demands.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What leadership gaps companies are facing today: talent development, retention and engagement, diversity and representation, succession planning, strategic thinking, and many others
  • Why learning and talent leaders need to prioritize identifying and closing these gaps
  • The types of offerings talent leaders should adopt to develop the new breed of leaders that businesses need
  • Why leadership coaching, governance exposure, and board service should be evergreen facets of your formal leadership development strategy 



Primary Capability Covered: Career and Leadership Development
