Executive Breakfast Series:
The Looming Leadership Shortage - How Are You Building Your Leadership Capacity?

Presented by: 

The Executive Breakfast Series, presented by Aon, will consist of a series of breakfast meetings where HR executives will be able to come together to discuss important issues and trends affecting their workplaces. In addition to breakfast, each session will feature a session host speaking for 10-15 minutes on a topic of interest followed by 45 minutes of roundtable conversation with participants.

These breakfasts will be limited to senior HR executive(s) in each company. Executives in Non-HR roles are also welcome to join us. Space is limited.

Topic: The Looming Leadership Shortage - How Are You Building Your Leadership Capacity?

Leadership capacity is the top human capital challenge in Canada today. Current and future trends will magnify the leadership challenge going forward. Trends such as:

  • The flattening of organizations over the past few decades, removing the opportunity for incremental leadership development in junior leaders.
  • The impending loss of leadership knowledge as the boomer generation exits the labour market.
  • A work environment experiencing the ever increasing speed of technology  and increased diversity in the workforce both culturally and generationally, will make the daily act of leadership even more complex than ever before.

The quality and effectiveness of leadership can have a profound impact on work cultures and organizational performance at all levels. As a result, leadership development is seen as an imperative and as a strategic differentiator that can help an organization break away from the pack. 


Join us for this important conversation on why, more than ever before, the future of your organization and indeed Canada, relies on developing the leadership capacity within your organization.
