Discussion: Why did LeBron go to Miami? Becuase one person can't carry a team to victory.

Leaders forget the X factor is their people. An employee’s level of commitment determines your ability to execute and deliver on strategic plans. Your talent is your competitive edge. How you lead and how you tap into that workforce determines what you can accomplish. So how long can you keep moving the needle with the team you have today? How much can you deliver when your VP of App Dev leaves? If you were asked to go lean and cut 25% of your staff, would you know where to start? What happens to your team when you decide to go to Miami?

Whether your organization utilizes formal succession planning practices or believes it’s a useless exercise, there are actions you can take as a CIO to increase transparency, productivity, and autonomy across your team. Our panel will demonstrate how succession planning and leadership development inside their organizations has created critical retention tactics, energized new product development, and netted new revenue in a down market.

We’ll discuss the business strategy as well as the tactical practical details of implementing a plan and taking your current program to the next level. If you’ve been counting on the recession as your retention program, now’s your opportunity to garner ideas from your peers and take deliberate action to bolster and transform your team.

Remember: When a team isn’t performing, typically they don’t fire the team; they fire the coach.
