About Assessing & Developing High Potentials

The Management of Top Talent at All Levels

March 31st – April 2nd, 2014 The Westin Buckhead – Atlanta, GA

As the future leaders of their organizations, high-potentials slide into new positions, receive special coaching and mentoring, and are expected to deliver superior performances. Ideally, top talent is identified as early as possible and benefits from specialized career development plans that ensure that the best and brightest quickly rise to the top. Just as competitive advantage can be generated by a speed-to-market product strategy, it also can be created with a firm’s ability to accelerate the development of leadership talent. By efficiently developing leadership skills and competencies, high-performing organizations can distinguish themselves from opponents and extend their competitive advantage in the market.

The 3rd Annual Assessing & Developing High Potentials conferencewill feature exciting keynote sessions and two specialized tracks on talent management and organizational development. Insightful and practitioner led sessions will further enable human capital management professionals to become a strategic partner to the business in the talent assessment and development process. Learn from the best on: selection and assessment methodologies, experiential learning, internal mobility, coaching, mentoring and other accelerated development programs.
