Powering Up Your Leadership Pipeline


Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders® webinar series

Strong leadership is more than just a competitive advantage; it’s what separates world-class companies from the rest. Today, the need for effective leadership is unprecedented. Surveys consistently report that leadership is a key concern for senior executives. Gaps in the leadership pipeline, changing leadership requirements, inadequate leadership capabilities and greater needs to grow talent internally all point to the importance of assessing leadership talent. It’s no coincidence that top performing companies continue to invest in developing strong leadership pipelines.

The results from the Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders study on leadership and talent management indicate that a key differentiator separating top companies from the rest is an emphasis on growing leadership capabilities at all levels within the organization. Sustainable success requires a solid leadership pipeline.

This five-part webinar series, based on the research and results from the 2014 study, will look at some of the best practices top companies use to grow, strengthen, and develop their leadership pipelines. Additionally, you will hear directly from some of the 2014 winners and other leading companies about tools and strategies to help your organization stand out from the rest.
