Harvard Business Publishing Corporate Learning is welcoming all NOCA members to this event.
Many large companies fail to pay enough attention to their leadership pipelines and succession practices. From the poor development of inside talent, to the irrational bias towards exciting but ill-suited external hires, the costs of bad planning are huge: According to Claudio Fernández-Aráoz in his new Harvard Business Review article, the market value wiped out by badly managed C-suite transitions in the S&P 1500 is close to $1 trillion a year.
Why are some of the world’s biggest and most powerful organizations getting senior leadership appointments so wrong?
Join Claudio, Executive Fellow of Executive Education at Harvard Business School, as he shares ideas from his new article, exploring the most common mistakes made when hiring senior executives; highlighting the critical role of leadership development in effective succession planning; and considering the implications for HR leaders. From mastering the art of spotting internal talent, to giving high potentials access to the board in preparation, and hiring CEOs from outside much less frequently than firms do currently, Claudio will provide a blueprint for hiring your future (and ideally best ever) leaders, while significantly improving corporate performance.
