Developing Great Leaders

Wednesday, November 3, 2010
This event has ended. Click Enter Event to view the archive.
According to recent research by the American Society of Training and Development, companies with regular employee training consistently outperform companies who do not train their people. Businesses interested in long-term viability recognize that to be successful, they must continually develop their people - especially their leaders.

Companies consistently look for ways to increase revenues and decrease costs, and when the economy takes a downturn, one of the first areas that is often cut is training and development. In the short-term this will decrease a company's costs, but in the long term, research shows that when the economy bounces back, companies who continued to invest in their high potential employees and their leaders achieve much greater sucess than those who don't.

Leadership is an essential factor in any kind of organization. Leaders are your motivators, your innovators, and your key to success. Organizations need leaders who can challenge the norm, motivate people, and push the frontiers. Great leaders display the ability to think creatively and often can change the rules of the game in whatever industry they enter. A leadership development program can serve as a powerful tool for the growth and success of your business.

Join us as we examine what it takes to make a leadership development program effective and why your organization could benefit from implementing them.

Conference Webcast Schedule
Henry Thompson, President and CEO(High Performing Systems Inc)

This highly relevant and insightful Webcast reveals in plain terms the connection between leader success and stress, why a leader's capacity for resilience is the NEW key competency for leadership in the 21st Century, and how to build resilience in your organization by better understanding the components of a Stress Resilient System™.

Webcast Presenter and award-winning Organizational Psychologist Henry L. (Dick) Thompson, Ph.D., also shares other key findings from his groundbreaking new resource for developing leaders: The Stress Effect: Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions - and What to Do About It.

Dr. Thompson, an emotional intelligence and leadership expert with over 30 years of experience working with leaders, has seen what happens to leaders who don’t learn to manage their stress. Too many bright and experienced leaders have fallen victim to underestimating the impact of stress in their lives. He explains what happens to a leader’s decision-making effectiveness when his or her stress level becomes sufficiently elevated—whether in the boardroom, classroom or on the front line of a manufacturing process. The ability to effectively use their emotional intelligence and cognitive ability in tandem to make wise decisions is significantly impaired.

Until now, experts have argued that increasing your emotional intelligence will help you cope with and manage stress. The Stress Effect shows that stress actually blocks access to your emotional intelligence as well as your cognitive ability, two critical components in the decision-making process.

You will learn how stress impacts the brain's Cognitive and Emotional Intelligences—the two essential qualities needed in high performance decision making—and how to build the three components of a Stress Resilient System™  using the seven best practices.

Discover next steps for integrating training and applying techniques to build resiliency for yourself and your organization.  The Stress Effect offers a solid prescription for building a "stress resilient system" and arms leaders with best practices for managing specific the stressors that take the biggest toll on decision making.


The pressure to increase profit has rarely been greater, especially in the midst of such challenging economic times.

Are you looking for a way to increase your profit margins without slashing budgets? Have you considered leadership to be a key strategy in driving bottom-line profitability?

Using quantifiable business results to reinforce his message Scott K. Edinger, co-author of The Inspiring Leader, will discuss these questions and deliver a clear picture of how leadership drives profit and how to put these concepts to work in your organization.

Scott Engler, Executive Advisor(HR Leadership Council)

Economic uncertainty and organizational changes have had a substantial impact on the emotional commitment of High Potential Employees (HIPOs), in particular. To rebuild their emotional engagement, successful organizations focus on improving manager skills, creating viable career paths, and providing support with key development experiences.

Join this webinar as we address the following questions:
  • How has the economic downturn shifted the engagement of HIPOs?
  • How can I improve my managers’ abilities to assess and address HIPO engagement risks?
  • What strategies will improve the mobility of my HIPOs and help them envision a long-term career at my company?
  • How do I evaluate and support the right high-impact development experiences for HIPOs?
