Developing leaders to develop your talent, more urgent than ever......

  • According to PwC’s Global CEO Survey, the shortage of key skills ranks second (behind only higher taxes) as a threat to growth.

  • In the Conference Board’s CEO Challenge 2013, how best to develop, engage, manage, and retain talent—leads the list of the top ten global challenges in the coming year. Moreover, CEOs’ top strategy for addressing human capital is growing talent internally.

  • Executives also report that only 5 percent of their employees have the mix of skills and capabilities required to deliver on the results their organizations expect in 2013, (recent study by global corporate research firm CEB.)

Yet a solution eludes most . . .

Senior leaders and HR executives are not happy with the outcome of current talent development—a roughly $300 billion market globally—that is not nearly getting the needed results.

How do we know? Because we did the research with managers we call Exceptional Development Managers to discover what they do. These managers get development and performance results at the same time.
