2:00 PM - 2:40 PM Project Accelerate! Developing Top Talent in the Age of Constant Disruption

Mark Benton , VP, Talent Management & Org Effectiveness , McKesson
Being a successful leader in the 21st century is not for the faint of heart. Inspiring and leading others through economic volatility, workforce uncertainty, complex change, and an ambiguous marketplace are ever present issues facing today’s leaders. To navigate these disruptive waters, organizations need strong, resilient and agile leaders. With so many distractions and limited resources, organizations are finding it hard to accelerate their leadership development efforts while balancing business performance. At McKesson, we are no different. However, we are learning the art of leveraging challenging times to accelerate leadership potential. Let’s engage in a discussion to gain greater perspective and insights:
  • Navigate the complexity organizations face when developing high-potential talent during constant change
  • Identify and leverage critical experiences to develop high-potential employees on the job
  • Measure the impact of a HIPO program and the employees it produces

Julie Veloz, VP, Learning & Development , IPG Mediabrands
Are you a learning space leader that feels sidelined? Do you wonder why other departments are as successfully partnering with the business but not yours? Do you wondering how you can demonstrate your work and how it contributes to the bottom line? Do you like lonely walks on the beach?
If any of those things ring true, come spend the best 30 minutes talking about how you can be front and center taking your seat at the table where the decisions happen, by using data and training metrics.
During this session attendees will learn how to:
· Use Pre-and Post-Survey Data
· Present Data in a way that the business will understand and get excited about
· Think about ideas that will showcase you as ‘a business owner’ not just a department leader

4:35 PM - 5:20 PM The Secret to Offering Feedback that Inspires Action

Ideally, feedback should inspire people to learn, grow, and push the edge on what they are capable of. Sadly, too often it results in resentment, disengagement and damaged relationships.
That’s a real problem—for your entire organization—because people need feedback so can learn fast enough to keep pace in our ever-changing world. That’s why that so many companies are moving to “in the moment” development. Clearly, the ability to offer feedback that engages and inspires is essential—and elusive.
Join Dianna Anderson, CEO of Cylient, for a lively, interactive learning experience where you will discover for yourself how to offer “in the moment” feedback that inspires people to take action
