Developing Leaders in the Digital Age

KennedyFitch and IE Corporate Relations invite you to join the HR Breakfast event with professor Nick van Dam

With organizations undergoing unprecedented shifts and the nature of work moving to an increasingly decentralized model, leaders now more than ever need to help their organizations adapt quickly to new realities. Despite leadership development being a top priority for most CEOs, the results seldom achieve their objectives. Leadership programs fail to make a meaningful difference to business performance, and organizations fall short on the leadership talent they need. In this workshop, Dr. Nick van Dam will address why most leadership development efforts fails and what organizations can do to develop leaders at scale. He will leverage insights from a new McKinsey book ‘Leadership at Scale’ that he has co-authored. The insights on leadership development is grounded from over 375.000 data points and the global experience of more than 25 senior leadership practitioners.
