of Learning and Development to Spur Future Growth
NEW YORK (July 8, 2014) – The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced details of its 2014 Learning and Leadership Development Conference, which will be held from Monday, September 8 through Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at the Seaport Boston Hotel.
As the digital age evolves, the value of learning and leadership development has become critically important to the success and growth of any organization. At the same time, the nature of leadership core competencies and abilities has changed. To be successful in today’s fast-paced, complex and social landscape, leaders must be proficient in skills like critical thinking, the ability to drive collaboration, analytics and social media. The organizations that understand this need and work to develop their leaders effectively will be most successful in harnessing the collective efforts of a diverse workforce. However, getting to this point is a significant challenge for many organizations.
HCI’s 2014 Learning and Leadership Development Conference was designed to help companies overcome these challenges in order to better connect learning and executive development with business outcomes and employee performance. Attendees will learn not only how to identify high potentials with the competencies in new world skills, but also how to develop an effective leadership experience that gives individuals the knowledge to drive the corporate brand and vision, generate collaboration and sustain future growth. As a result, they can create an environment that supports collaborative and social learning while building a deep talent bench for robust succession planning.
Through a comprehensive agenda of informative sessions led by the foremost experts and thinkers in leadership development, the conference will provide attendees with practical insights and best practices they can leverage to make immediate improvements in their organizations’ leadership development programs. Among the highlights will be engaging sessions from Sylva Juliano, group director, Executive and Leadership Development at The Coca-Cola Company, Bottling Investments Group; Edith Cooper, managing director, global head of Human Capital Management at Goldman Sachs; and Soni Basi, Ph.D., executive director, Global Talent Development at the Estee Lauder Companies.
“Most companies today are facing a similar challenge: the need to build an environment that produces the learning and development that can sustain future growth,” said Carl Rhodes, HCI’s chief executive officer. “Our 2014 Learning and Leadership Development Conference will provide attendees with proven strategies to create a compelling leadership development experience that will keep their high potentials engaged and eager to advance their skillsets. As a result, their companies will be better suited to address the rapid changes of the new social economy and ensure a sustainable pipeline of effective leaders.”
