Who: Business Leaders & HR Executives who are leading business transformation

Business transformations are on the rise in the face of unprecedented and disruptive changes in industries, markets, technologies, and customer expectations. Yet successful business transformation requires foremost a successful transformation in leadership culture.

EBSCO Information Services (EIS) provides a compelling case from which essential lessons can be drawn. A multi-billion-dollar global technology company, EIS has undergone a major business transformation in recent years. Successful transformation required a change in the mindset, skillset and toolset of the organization’s leaders at all levels. In this session, participants will learn the practices that enabled that transformation, including executive team development, defining leadership expectations at all levels, integrating “how we work” into talent systems, and providing supportive tools and practices to drive the right behaviors into daily work.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand the key people practices that enable organizational transformation
  • Leverage a talent systems audit to determine the strengths and opportunities for improvement in your current talent systems
  • Apply best-practice leadership development methods as key enablers to business transformation and sustainable growth
