Enterprise leaders and people managers play a crucial role in an organization's culture, talent development and ensuring the business is able to achieve key objectives. According to Gartner research, HR leaders say their expectations of people managers have increased across every possible dimension; including learning to manage hybrid teams, managing through change and driving productivity. With Gen Z entering the workforce, baby boomers waiting longer to retire and more millennials becoming people leaders, how should the C-suite think about workforce strategy when planning for the future?

In this interactive conversation, CHROs will discuss how to proactively stay ahead of the curve in leadership competency and development as well as succession planning.

Topic 1: Ensuring Leaders Have the Skills Needed to Thrive

  • What has been the biggest development opportunity you’ve noticed among your people managers? 

  • Are your leaders taking a human-centric approach, focusing on being authentic, empathetic and adaptive?

  • Do you believe resetting role expectations could help improve managerial effectiveness?

Topic 2: Building a Robust Talent Bench to Meet an Evolving Industry Landscape

  • How often are you updating your succession plans? How do you approach different levels of leadership? 

  • How is your organization addressing skill shortages in order to develop the next generation of leaders?  

  • What industry or technological challenges do you anticipate when working to build out your leadership bench?
