    Early identification of potential is important to the success of any organization. Inclusive leadership compels bold and courageous Calls to Action* to grow the wealth of hidden talent in leadership pipelines.

    Even if your organization has well-developed talent management processes, they may still be susceptible to stereotypical thinking which creeps in during policy implementation.

    In this dynamic session you will learn how to identify, measure, and address the hidden challenges in talent management, leadership development, and reward systems to achieve greater gender inclusion.

    Please join us for an interactive session conducted by Dr. Anna Marie Valerio in which she will help us to answer the questions:

    • What are the challenges and “calls to action” that lead to greater inclusion in leadership pipelines?
    • What are the critical behaviors male and female leaders use to foster gender inclusiveness in organizations?
    • How may I use my influence and expert knowledge as an I/O Psychology/HR leader to kick-start Inclusion in my organization?

    *Based on the Walker Award-winning article, “Wherefore Art Thou All Our Women High-Potentials?” in the People + Strategy Journal, Winter, 2018.

    Organizations fixate on executives who appear eager, certain, and charismatic. Yet, unbridled confidence often disguises a narcissistic focus on the self at the expense of others. Recent research suggest humble, generous leaders deliver better results by learning from mistakes, creating  productive dialogue, and building stronger teams. In this presentation, Dr. Robert Hogan will discuss the downsides of charisma, upsides of of humility, recent research supporting these claims, and ways organizations can actively select and develop humility in the upper ranks.
