Succession Planning: Conducting an Effective Talent Review Webinar, June 22
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. An important step in creating a successful succession plan is to conduct a talent review that identifies potential successors for target positions that will have the most effect on the stability, growth, production, and profitability of the organization.

In this webinar we'll share methods for evaluating your current talent (with clarification around high-performing employees vs. high-potential employees). We’ll introduce valuable assessment tools such as the nine-box model, and we’ll provide tips for HR professionals charged with facilitating or coordinating talent review meetings. You’ll come away prepared to build a list of high potentials for your target positions so that you can move forward with assessing and developing your talent.

Strategic HR Competencies Workshop, July 24
In recent decades the HR profession has shifted tremendously, and the skills required to be successful in HR today are much different than a generation ago. For more than 25 years the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS) has been researching the competencies that HR professionals need to master in order to be strategic contributors to their organizations, and in 2012 the HRCS released an updated list: strategic positioner, credible activist, capacity builder, change champion, HR innovator and integrator, and technology proponent. In this daylong workshop we’ll look at each of these six competencies, helping to define each of them, exploring how participants can develop them further, and considering opportunities to apply this knowledge on the job. The program includes a 360-degree assessment that will help participants measure how well they’ve mastered the competencies as well as the influence they have with key constituents across their organization.

Strength in Numbers: Why Group Coaching Works Webinar, August 11
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.

What’s All This Talk about Abolishing the Annual Review? Webinar, September 23

We'll discuss the pros and cons of making radical shifts and what to consider if you want to start down a "no-review" path.
