This webinar will provide attendees with a proven and systematic method for improving organizational performance based on the latest research in adult learning, neuroscience and strategic talent management that involves: identifying critical strategic leadership competencies; assessing leaders’ capacity to meet demands; and quickly developing strategy-critical competencies.
