Succession Planning and Leadership Development 2018

By 2020, most baby boomers will have retired, leaving Gen Y to dominate employment, 42% of the workforce. By 2025, it’s predicted they will dominate 60%. Research says we are headed towards the biggest leadership succession time ever hence we need to plan effectively.

Succession planning strategies and leadership development skills are crucial in modern times. Not every succession plan is going to be effective in the long run; many charismatic leaders might not turn into successful CEOs. Leaders need to be developed and mentored, not just trained; the challenge is to develop critical thinking skills and emotional intelligence in potential leaders.

With this in mind our Succession Planning and Leadership Development Summit 2018 will focus on developing and retaining next generation leaders through innovative succession planning and leadership development practices. Key learning areas include:

  • Retaining talent long enough to fill out executive positions in future
  • Developing talent and people capability to build future leaders
  • Utilizing data analytics to assess employee performance
