Webinar: Developing a Strategic Approach to Leadership Development (LDCP) According to the best thought leaders in the industry, many organizations are unclear about how they can create a sustainable, leadership talent pipeline for the long term. Organizations need to manage their leadership supply chain with the same rigor that they would apply to other parts of the organization.

The reality is that many organizations do not even understand who their key leadership is; therefore, refocusing efforts and investment on pivotal leadership roles could provide a major competitive advantage over the next 12-18 months.
Companies are realizing more and more that their leadership development programs are instrumental to their business's future.

GIODN Special Speaker - The Leadership Circle: A New Standard for Leadership Development There is absolutely no leader who doesn’t want to win, in business and in life! Here’s the problem, the rules keep changing…the rate of change is the fastest it has ever been and the slowest it will be. Many of our leaders find themselves feeling burnt-out and overwhelmed, struggling to keep up, to manage the overload of information and demands coming at them each day, to find the time to think, to connect with their people and their customers …struggling to be their best.
Thriving as a leader in the 21st century requires a new way of leading, a new way of being. It means playing to win rather than playing not to lose; it means expanding the window of tolerance and the capacity for increased resilience; it means unlocking the best version of who we are so that we may scale our leadership effectiveness and achieve an even higher level of business performance.
GIODN is so excited to welcome our special speakers for November - Sky Jarrett and Gina Magnum! They will be sharing some insights on leadership that are extremely important for OD professionals. Join us for this dynamic session!
During this session, we will take a deep dive into the Leadership Circle framework and explore how, as a new standard for leadership development, it is enabling leaders to thrive more effectively in the 21st Century.
