This SSIR Live! program will explore:               

  • How effective leadership development can make a difference in reducing leadership turnover
  • How to define what your organization needs in future leaders, and how to help your current management team cultivate those talents
  • Best practices, tips, and tools to support leadership development among your executive team

Do you have the leaders you need to achieve your mission? Experienced executives understand the importance of skilled leaders to mission success; but few feel confident in their ability to cultivate and retain that talent. A recent survey by The Bridgespan Group showed that the two-year turnover rate for senior leadership is about 25 percent, driven in large part by the perceived lack of development and growth opportunities.

In this SSIR Live! program, Bridgespan partner, Preeta Nayak will share findings from the firm’s research on leadership development, and outline the habits every executive team can take to slow the “turnover treadmill” and better prepare for future success. Fontaine M. Huey, president, Center for the Visually Impaired, and Bonnie Hunter, director of Talent & Innovation at North York Community House, will share their experiences of putting these practices in place within a growing organization, including tips and tools for jumpstarting the process, and mitigating the biases that can limit staff development and growth.
