If leaders are made, not born (as Vince Lombardi said), then what are the smart ways in which HR can play a major role in developing them? How can HR help identify employees with leadership potential? What can be done to help employees with outstanding technical skills make the transition into management? How can they be trained early in their career trajectory–and then refined in a continuous way? And how can HR work with top management to define an organization's leadership qualities and promote diverse new leaders?

When you read the title above, do you think "C-Suite coaching?" I had that same thought; yesterday. Today, coaching for leadership serves a much larger group than it did in the past. Along with senior management, subject matter experts, line managers, middle-managers, and hi-potentials are ALL leaders whose impact on organizational performance is being increased through the benefits of coaching. In this workshop, Paul Tripp will give a brief overview of the current coaching landscape and methods and then use a fascinating case study to help you understand how you can deploy coaching broadly within your own organization to develop leaders at ALL levels. You won't want to miss hearing one of the country's top executive coaches sharing his thoughts on how to build amazing leaders through coaching!

Emtrain has 17 million employee responses regarding the indicators of a healthy workplace culture. By far, the strongest predictor of a healthy culture is a high score in well-established norms of behavior. Organizations with well-established norms of behavior also score well in diversity and inclusion, respect, and ethical workplaces. In this discussion, we'll explore how HR can partner with their CEO to draft norms of behavior on every facet of the employee experience - from interviewing to team dynamics to resolving conflict to career advancement to transitioning out of business. HR can then identify the managers who best support those norms and cultivate them into tomorrow's leaders.

Leaders tend to draw the same two plays from the old playbook of emotional management: giving a pep talk and sounding the alarm. However, leaders need to recognize that employees bring a diversity of moods to work each day. A behavioral scientist and professor of management explores how leaders can expand their emotion-management playbook.
