Our Weekly Activities

Curriculum for current semester: Leadership (Perspectives and Analysis)

  • It is essential that group members read up on business books on leadership to contribute.

    Topics may include but not limited to the following:
    1. Manage Talent as a Strategic Asset
      • A steady pipeline of effective leaders ready to step up has myriad strategic benefits. It can lead to a stronger organizational culture, a workforce that is better prepared to thrive in dynamic conditions, and greater stability and resilience within the organization
    2. Establish an Environment that Develops Successors
      • The focus should be on how to prepare successors, not simply identify them; learning should be emphasized over performance. Organizational environments should combine opportunities for successors to gain experience, exposure, and education.

  • 3. Orient Succession Planning Toward the Future
      • Firms must consider succession in the context of what leadership roles will look like in the long term rather than building succession plans based on current roles. This will ensure that future leaders are prepared to deal with a world that will differ from the present. It is also important to foster a mindset of constant personal growth so new leadership is prepared for dynamic business environments.
