Beating the Peter Principle: Picking the Best Leaders

It has happened many times before: a rising star is promoted to a leadership role, only to crash and burn once there. Worse, the former star does collateral damage during the crash. The Peter Principle plays itself out far too frequently in companies of all sizes. Many leaders find out the hard way that the skills and abilities that made them great individual contributors are not necessarily the same ones required to be a great leader.

Join Bob Grace and Rik Nemanick, Principals of The Leadership Effect, to learn how companies can combat the Peter Principle by assessing for leadership potential. They will cover best practices in competency modeling, individual difference assessments, and behavioral simulations. Bob and Rik will share their experience gained by working with organizations like Monsanto, Edward Jones, Nestlé Purina, and Anheuser-Busch.
