I am extremely honored to have been selected to deliver the closing keynote speech at the Human Resource Institute of Alberta (HRIA) annual convention on April 18, 2013. I will be joined by opening keynoters Dave Ulrich, Connie Podesta and Susan Cain. My topic, “Future Trends in Leadership Development & Talent Management”, is one of my most popular speeches for one reason: My talk focuses on the research-based prescriptive action steps organizations must execute now in their talent management and leadership development practices in order to ensure their operating survival through the year 2020. Here’s a brief summary of this presentation:
This engaging and insightful program is based on John Mattone’s “Trends in Executive Development” research published by Pearson, the world’s leading education company. This program is geared for CEO’s, leaders of HR and operations, and future leaders. Mr. Mattone’s research is widely regarded as one of the most authoritative and respected global research studies in the field of leadership development. John Mattone’s Twenty 2020 concept offers a powerful and compelling look at the future of talent management and executive development. The Twenty 2020 concept identifies the critical 20 leadership development and talent management practices that must be implemented and executed immediately by any organization to successfully mitigate their operating risk and ensure their survival and viability-through the year 2020 and beyond.
