Join us for this exclusive 2-day event featuring live discussions with CCL experts and HR executives about the most urgent topics in leadership today.

Session 1: Lessons from Senior Leaders: What Leadership Development Means Today

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 10:00 a.m. EDT / 4:00 p.m. CEST  

After a year of unparalleled disruption, many senior leaders are thinking differently about the role of leadership, and what that means for their organizations going forward. Sharing highlights from our latest research, we’ll also hear from a panel of senior HR leaders about what they’ve learned, where they’re investing, and how the past year has shaped their plans for leadership development in the future.

Session 2: Equity, Diversity & Inclusion: The Crucial Role that Senior Leaders Must Play

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 12:00 p.m. EDT / 6:00 p.m. CEST 

Reinvention starts at the top. And when it comes to implementing systemic change in equity, diversity & inclusion (EDI) within your organization, that means top leaders must embody an inclusive leadership approach. Awareness is important, but in order to see meaningful culture change, executives need to move beyond well-intentioned words and be actively involved. During this session, you’ll hear from Julie Osborne, VP Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion at AbbVie who will share her experiences from last year and how her organization is approaching EDI into the future.

Session 3: The Human Energy Crisis: The Call for Greater Resilience

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 10:00 a.m. EDT / 4:00 p.m. CEST 

Join us for a discussion on the importance of creating an environment that develops individual and organizational resilience, led by Kathleen O’Neill, CCL Organizational Leadership Practitioner. We’ll start with defining resilience and then hear stories from the front lines from HR leaders and practitioners as they share what they’ve experienced, the challenges they currently face, the successes they’re having, and what they’re learning as they work with their leaders to build greater resilience in their organizations.

Session 4: The Leadership Profile of the Future: From Here to There

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 12 p.m. EDT / 6 p.m. CEST 

The global pandemic has put a new spotlight on the importance of future-proofing leadership. What talent profile should organizations create as they think about leadership 5 or even 10 years from now? In this session, we’ll explore the critical external forces shaping future leadership profiles and the leadership challenges that must be addressed in upskilling existing talent. For your organization to succeed and thrive, you’ll need a leadership development bridge between the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow. Join experts from CCL and other senior leaders as they discuss how to go from here to there.
