PIHRA South Bay

Building the Next Generation of Management

presented by Cecilia Gorman


Honing the next generation of managers with skills in strategic planning, critical thinking and leadership is imperative for sustained organizational success. It takes deliberate effort and, done right, can help build a powerful pipeline of internal leaders. Done wrong, or not at all, will lead to ineffective managers, weak teams and little to no growth potential for employees.

What are some of the key skills missing in internal talent pools and how can companies better prepare them for success?

In this session, we’ll cover some must-have skills for the next generation of leaders to be better prepared to step into bigger roles, skills that today’s managers will need to succeed in the ever-evolving workplace.

Key takeaways:

  • How to identify actionable next steps for building a stronger talent pool from within your four walls
  • Learn the #1 roadblock to developing influential internal talent
  • How better to arm emerging leaders with tools for continuous skill building
  • Creating and implementing leadership development initiatives aligned with the business strategy
