Every large organization wants a high-performance culture — and if senior leaders understand howto achieve it, they’ll invest in the education and training to get it. This session will first look at why a strong, engaged corporate culture is so important: research that shows exactly what business outcomes an engaged corporate culture can achieve, and the strategic theory (yes, there is some) that shows what roles junior and senior executives should play. Then we will walk through a case study of one large financial firm, and how it identifies promising executives and trains them for the strong leadership that can bring about that high-performance organization.
- Hear fresh academic research that explores the connections between an engaged employee base and better business outcomes such as fewer lawsuits filed against the company, smaller settlements for litigation and higher profitability;
- Review lessons of strategic theory that show how high-performing organizations typically define their culture and which responsibilities they assign to junior and senior executives;
- See how one large financial firm manages its learning and development program for promising executives to achieve higher performance for the firm overall.
