Bench Strength Accelerator

How to Identify and Develop Great Leaders

Leadership bench strength is a hot talent management topic right now, and for good reason; uncertainty about how long current leaders will stay and what leadership skills will be most critical in the future is keeping many HR executives up at night. “Bench Strength Accelerator” is a comprehensive approach to succession planning and high potential development.

Participants in this fast-paced, interactive learning experience will:

  • Gain insight into the business challenges driving the leadership succession imperative
  • Understand differences in assessments for performance, potential and key competencies
  • Learn how to ensure that assessments are testing for the right critical job skills
  • See how potential can turn into derailment without effective development
  • Gain tools for determining the best development methods for specific leadership skills and behaviors—and why most training & development approaches don’t work
  • Determine pragmatic best practices for strengthening your company’s bench

This program can be delivered in a variety of formats, all of which provide talent management data and concepts, along with real-world examples and stories from the front lines of talent identification and development. We will work with you to customize examples, case studies and group activities to deepen insights and set up back-on-the-job application for learning that makes a long-term impact.
