Learning how to effectively identify future leaders is at the core of every successful company. Good leaders make good decisions but many companies fall short in predicting what talent will deliver the right results. Consideration of context in leader selection and development has become increasingly important. Companies and vendors alike are working to integrate context into their leadership programmes; however, considering nearly 50% of all leaders fail to meet their objectives after moving into a new role, the methods used to define and apply context in decision-making are highly variable and unproven.
In this webinar, we learn about CEB, Gartner’s largest research study in over 25 years to understand leader performance.
