Group Coaching: A Cost-Effective Way to Achieve Results Webinar, May 1, 2014
More and more organizations are using group coaching as a tool to develop their employees. Group coaching can be used to support employees in a leadership development program, peers who are going through a shared experience (e.g., newly promoted managers), employees who need to build broader and more diverse internal networks, or individuals from the same work group or function who are trying to become a high-performing team. This approach provides an opportunity for a small group of individuals (typically around five to eight) to benefit from the guidance and support of a professional coach while also learning from one another.

In this webinar we’ll share when group coaching tends to work best, how group coaching should be structured, considerations for creating ownership, and tips to ensure group coaching has a lasting impact.

Targeted Mentoring Programs: One Size Doesn’t Fit All Webinar, July 8, 2014
Many people have either served as a mentor at some point in their careers or have benefited from the knowledge and expertise of a mentor. Mentoring has been proven again and again to be an effective development opportunity. So why don’t some programs work? While many of the aspects of the traditional mentoring model still apply, there has been a shift in how mentoring is being used by organizations to drive outcomes.

In this webinar we'll provide key considerations for executing a successful mentoring program in your organization. We’ll start with various ways that organizations are using mentoring today, including more emphasis on targeted programs (which tend to have the greatest impact). We’ll then provide tips and key considerations for building your program, including: differentiating mentoring from other development activities, selecting mentors and protégés, matching mentors and protégés, establishing clear roles, creating a supportive infrastructure, providing training and education for mentors and protégés, communicating internally with key stakeholders, and evaluating and following up throughout the mentoring relationship.

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.
