HR Forum: Driving Future Success Through Team Leadership Capability and Effectiveness

March 19, 2013

Greetings ITAC HR Forum Members:

The next ITAC HR Forum meeting is Tuesday, March 19th, hosted by HP Canada in Mississauga. Please mark your calendars accordingly!

An organization's capacity to develop effective leaders is recognized as one of the most important factors in achieving competitive advantage and profitability. However, recent estimates suggest that over 70% of organizations feel that their leaders do not have the capabilities necessary for future success. This leadership gap is critical.

The business environment today is complex and places increased expectations and demands on leaders. Many of today's IT organizations face the challenges of operating in global, matrixed and virtual environments, where the pace of change is rapid. This necessitates an increased need for team collaboration across function and geography. This environment requires a leader specifically skilled at leading teams.

Join us for an interactive session focused on how you can build leadership capacity for the future in a way that is meaningful, efficient and effective. This session will include: (1) an experiential activity designed to help you recognize the challenges of leadership; (2) a discussion around best practices in leadership development and specifically team leadership; and (3) a breakout group activity designed to help you consolidate and apply the principles discussed.
