DDI LeaderCon 2019

Into the Deep End: Helping New Executives Understand, Adapt, and Succeed

Monday, October 14 | 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Climbing the ladder of leadership is no simple task, and never has it been more difficult than now. As leaders ascend in today's chaotic context, each new assignment becomes more precarious than the last. But one leadership transition stands out as the most daunting: the transition to executive leadership. The odds are now against success, with more failing in their first executive job than not. And worse, the available support is falling far short. Recent DDI research shows that most executives receive either no support, or the wrong support as they make the most difficult leadership adjustment of their careers. The vast majority look outside their own organizations for help as they strive to emerge as successful executives.

This workshop will explore how you can remake your organization's support for emerging executives and provide the support your leaders need as they climb to executive heights.

Participants will:

  • Understand what it means to be an “executive”, what causes so many to fail, and what changes must leaders make to adapt
  • Explore how HR organizations must shift their approaches to provide the support that leaders need to meet the dramatically changing needs of new executives
  • Learn what successful organizations have done to help their emerging executives succeed in today's competitive and chaotic environment.

This workshop has been certified by HRCI and SHRM for 3.5 CEUs.
