[On Demand Webcast] Conference Board & AIIR Consulting: Are Your HiPos Overrated?

The primary dynamic in human affairs is the individual search for power, and those that rise the ranks are disproportionately bold, extraverted, and confident in their own capabilities. However, what it takes to get to the top of an organizational hierarchy is different than what it takes to effectively lead teams. Those that get to the top are good at emerging as the leader, but these skilled politicians may lack the ability to truly build and maintain high performing teams.

Human resource departments and boards are tasked with identifying executive leaders that can build a healthy culture and achieve economic outcomes. This webcast explains how practitioners can use cutting-edge science to uncover hidden gems and combat the problem of overrated, and excessively homogenous, leadership talent pools.

After attending this webcast, you will:

  • Understand the systemic causes of poor leadership in organizations and the most common mistakes made by practitioners
  • Understand how these mistakes lead to an excessive number of bad leaders that degrade organizational culture
  • Have several actionable strategies to immediately improve your high-potential programs and succession planning initiatives, making them both more effective and diverse
