The Anatomy of a Leader: Experiential Learning as the Core of Succession Development
Al Carlson, Vice President of Talent Management & Leadership Development, BTD Manufacturing
Each leadership position within an organization requires different skill sets, qualifications, and perhaps most importantly, experiences. Experiences that can’t be taught in a classroom or transferred with knowledge management. Experiences that shape how someone leads and makes critical decisions. The most successful succession candidate will have most of the experiences their predecessor has, but how can that be measured and developed?
In this session, Al Carlson will share how BTD Manufacturing has successfully included experience development into their succession planning strategy including:
• Identifying the “Anatomy of a Leadership Role” and how it is developed
• Using the 4 “E’s” of assessment and how they are used to determine what succession candidates need for development
• How BTD enables and equips candidates with experiences
• Measuring when a succession candidate is ready for the next move
