Building a Succession Process That Works Webinar, October 14, 2014
Nearly every CEO is talking about succession planning and rightfully so. Businesses today are looking at two disturbing trends: the impending mass exodus of baby boomers from the workforce and the growing mismatch between the skill demands of employers and the skill supply of the workforce. Having an effective succession program in place can help ensure that you have replacements ready to fill critical roles, deepen the pool of talent in your organization, advance diversity efforts, and promote the development and growth of your top talent.

In this webinar we'll share the primary factors to consider when creating a succession-planning process, including defining the scope of your plan such as whether to include all employees or just high-potentials and whether to focus on replacement planning or more robust talent pipeline development. We will share tools to identify and analyze critical positions, methods for evaluating current talent, and tools for tracking and keeping your plan up to date. We'll also discuss key considerations such as how to know if your organization is ready for a succession plan, the importance of buy-in from the top, and the connection with other talent management programs.

Coaching with Impact: A Powerful Tool to Transform Leaders Webinar, December 9, 2014
Organizations use coaching both as a stand-alone development tool and integrated within broader leadership or succession initiatives. Though coaching holds the power to transform our leaders, most organizations report both successes and failures. So what methods actually work?

In this webinar we will share how to make coaching engagements solution-focused and how to get leaders doing more of what works! We'll visualize the transformation—the participant's before and after—and show you (through some real-life examples) the techniques coaches use during this partnership. Finally, we will talk about how to implement coaching engagements, such as how to select coaching participants, who makes a good coach, and the various ways you can incorporate coaching into your development initiatives.
