How to Help Executives Operate at a Higher Level

How to Help Executives Operate at a Higher Level | HRDQU Webinar

60 minutes

Like with any job, there is variability in how effective different executives are. When executives operate at a high level, they can elevate an organization. When executives operate at a low level, they can stall or even destroy an organization. Research has found that 92% of executives operate at a suboptimal level. In this workshop, Ryan Gottfredson will discuss how human resource leaders can change or improve their practices to help their executives operate at a higher level. 

Attendees will learn:

  • The difference in impact excellent executives have compared to mediocre executives. 
  • The patterns of behaviors between excellent executives and mediocre executives. 
  • The foundational distinction between excellent executives and mediocre executives. 
  • A cutting-edge form of development called vertical development designed to help executives operate at a higher level. 
  • Best-practice recommendations for engaging in the vertical development of executives. 

Who should attend:

  • Leaders and managers
  • HR and learning and development personnel
  • Trainers and independent consultants
