2018 SIOP Leading Edge Consortium

LEC Resources Page
(Attendees Only)


Identifying, developing, and retaining high potential talent is one of the most common and critical strategic leadership challenges organizations seek to solve. The science of industrial-organizational psychology proves helpful as a basis for organizations to more accurately and effectively identify and grow this unique leadership talent pool. Given the critical impact that high potential talent can have on the business, it is easy to see why this is a compelling strategic issue for organizations. Most organizations want to unlock the secret to successfully identifying, developing and retaining high potential talent.

Please join us at the annual SIOP Leading Edge Consortium (LEC) on October 19 – 20 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel with workshops taking place on the 18th. (Sessions begin at 8 am on the 19th and end by 3 pm on the 20th.)

The 2018 LEC is focused on bringing the best thought leaders together with seasoned practitioners who are knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of high potentials. Here you will learn about best practices and practical and strategic applications to take back to your organization. Workshops and sessions will cover a wide range of topics linked to the High Potential lifecycle, from identification and assessment, development, program design and integration, and the future of High Potential talent management.

Leading experts in the talent space – from academic researchers, applied psychologists and consultants, to senior executives from world-class organizations - will discuss their perspectives, recommendations, and tactical guidance in solving the most pressing strategic talent challenges in organizations like yours.

In addition to workshops and sessions, there will be structured and informal networking opportunities for you to learn from each other and session speakers.
