The economic downturn in our industry has not slowed down the impending “crew change”. An estimated 70% of the energy workforce is 50 years or older and positioned for retirement in 5-7 years. Companies are challenged with the critical need to invest in the development of high potential, emerging leaders while managing the cost of robust, “high dollar” hi-pot programs. ConocoPhillips will share how they are leveraging best practices from other industries to build an efficient and sustainable model for hi-pot development that goes beyond the classroom. They leverage technology for collaborative learning, engage leaders to teach leaders, incorporate action learning projects, and bring much of the design and delivery “in-house”. You will walk away with ideas that are cost effective & scalable for any organization.
