Companies need talent to drive their strategies forward to innovate, to adapt, and to execute flawlessly. But whether you are seeking an executive or a thousand brokers, how can you find the talent you need?
HBS Professor Boris Groysberg draws on the research to discuss best practices for growing top-performing employees and building high-performing organisations with inclusive cultures. He shows how leaders who take a more balanced approach to human capital management and nurture talent from within can create more resilient, successful organisations.
In this session, we will examine strategies for taking ourselves, our teams and our organisations to the next level and the latest thinking about becoming a star and how it differs for women and men.
Guided by Professor Groysberg, in this interactive session delegates will write down a short list of current challenges and opportunities that they face. Delegates will then ask 2-3 people at their table to share advice on those things. Delegates will then rotate so they end up talking to a number of people in the room to gain invaluable advice and lessons.
Harvard Business School
Boris Groysberg is tenured to the Organisational Behavior unit at the Harvard Business School. He has founded a course on leadership and gender called “How Star Women Succeed,” which has been oversubscribed in the MBA program.
Professor Groysberg also teaches extensively in Executive Education programs, co-chairs the “Women on Boards” program and has taught in women’s leadership forums around the globe.
Professor Groysberg has won numerous awards for his research, which investigates how a firm can be systematic in achieving a sustainable competitive advantage by leveraging its talent and how individuals can achieve stardom. His current research focuses on star women and their strategies to achieve success and how companies leverage diversity. This work inspired his most current research project: “How Star Women Succeed.” In this project, he gathers insights into how successful women build their careers. To date, over 250 highly successful women from across the globe in senior leadership positions in corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors have participated in the study.
