Stephen Rush, Editor
Even in the midst of economic upheaval, organizations need to recognize that selecting, developing, and managing the right leadership talent will help them not only survive but thrive when the economy eventually rebounds.

This collection of sixteen pieces-written by the Center for Creative Leadership's highly experienced and knowledgeable faculty members and researchers as well as by prominent practitioners and scholars in the fields of leadership and leadership development—explores the important topic of organizational talent challenges from a number of angles. This title is the third in the Series, which is drawn from revised and updated articles that were first published in CCL's former magazine, Leadership in Action

Learn how to prepare for and facilitate effective talent conversations by using the Center for Creative Leadership's development framework of assessment, challenge, and support.
