    Labor is having a moment. Over the past year, established unions and grassroots workers’ movements have had success in organizing workers, including in traditionally non-unionized sectors. At the same time, the National Labor Relations Board seeks to make it easier for unions to organize workers but harder for employers to campaign against unionization. In addition, the Board is contemplating new penalties, such as consequential damages, for employers who commit unfair labor practices. Please join us for a discussion of these trends and how all employers may be impacted by an emboldened labor movement and developments at the NLRB.

    Are you ready to benefit from skills-based talent management? By simply defining jobs with skills, your organization can connect talent with work in a more modern, agile way — and better meet the changing business landscape, as well as use workforce skills data to reduce decision-making bias and support a broader diversity, equity and inclusion strategy. For most organizations, the base unit of managing a workforce has traditionally been a job. During the 20th century, job descriptions and titles defined how we thought about work, set salaries and made critical decisions around talent and workforce transformation. In recent decades, however, companies have reimagined that unit of work. Work has experienced seismic disruptions as we have become more interdependent, knowledge-focused, specialized and flexible about where, when and how we work. As a result, the base unit of work has fundamentally evolved: from jobs to skills. Skills are now the primary way to define work: how we deploy talent, manage careers and even reward employees. Organizations that cannot connect skills to work are at risk of being outpaced by those that can more rapidly deploy mission-critical talent. HR is the central hub for skills consulting in the organization, developing skills programs that are timely, relevant and agile enough to support the organization’s strategy through skills assessment, talent development and employee reskilling.

    One thing is certain about today’s leaders: technical competence alone is not enough to make them successful. They need leadership capabilities and skills. We’d argue that moving from the job of expert to organizational leader represents a unique challenge that, in practice, is more complex and has far greater individual and organizational impact than just adding more technical knowledge. Being an organizational leader, requires shifting from relying on technical competence into being business and results focused. This means acquiring and developing leadership skills and competencies which are distinct from technical expertise. This session will outline the specialized elements of program design to meet the technical experts’ targeted development needs. We will share insights and discuss best practices from our work with hundreds of technical experts in both 1:1 coaching and leadership development programs. Session participants will get the chance to identify their own key takeaways to develop their organization’s technical super stars, using a signature “next steps” exercise.
