Chicago, IL (PressExposure) May 03, 2012 -- This July in downtown Chicago, Q1 Productions will launch its first-ever Global Learning & Leadership Development Congress. In an increasingly globalized marketplace, strong and outstanding leaders are best developed in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative, multicultural, practice-oriented learning environment. To reflect globalization and pervasive international operations, companies need to make internal shifts in learning and leadership culture along with tailoring their strategies to the new and coming workforce generations. Corporate leaders will share their valuable insights and experiences in identifying the future's high-potential leaders who will inspire colleagues, clients and drive business globally.
As today's leadership prepares tomorrow's with important business connections, networks and the skills to take on stretch roles, they have an added vector in training them to succeed on a global level. Future leaders will need to effectively navigate a marketplace with worldwide influences, requiring adaptation in thinking, behavior and world view. Expert speakers will advise learning and leadership executives on how to best increase expectations of company leaders around the world and influence greater collaboration, leading to heightened performance and multinational success. The Global Learning & Leadership Development Congress will approach next-generation training and development from all sides. Key topics will include shaping the global mindset - what global leaders need to know, do and believe, transforming global leadership development through the use of social learning, speaking the language of the next generations to ensure thriving succession management and the Wharton framework for leadership development - examining the new leadership frontier that creates sustainable economic growth.
Our corporate realities now necessitate those with business acumen blended with an understanding of global affairs, cultures and languages and the commitment to creating long-term value for their organizations and the communities they touch. The Global Learning & Leadership Development Congress helps to craft this next-level workforce designed specifically for and by the practitioner with in-house voices providing their comprehensive set of perspectives.
