Executive Session Planning: Taking the Perspective of the CEO and Board of Directors
Terri Hartwell Easter, Principal of T.H. Easter Consulting management consultancy, will discuss executive succession planning through a corporate risk management lens highlighting the role the senior leader responsible for talent management.
According to a recent American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC) Survey, only 14% of participants feel that their organizations have competent leaders in the pipeline. Given this pervasive leadership deficit, Easter will examine how star performers can be identified and developed into senior leaders and how quickly that development can happen.
The session will also touch upon:
· how to assess and articulate current and future organizational capabilities and requirements, including how to set or reset key organizational leadership competencies.
· diverse approaches for assessing current leaders with an eye to aligning business strategy (current and future) and organizational capabilities with talent requirements;
· how to effectively communicate an executive succession plan internally and externally; and
· a review of new tools for succession planning management, including assessment protocols.
