Antoinette Oglethorpe talks to Michelle Blieberg of Time Warner about creating talent development programmes that are designed for the needs of the business
One of the biggest challenges facing organisations is increasing bench strength so there is a pipeline of leaders ready to assume critical roles. In this interview, Michelle Blieberg talks about her experience of developing talent for organisational results by linking leadership development to business strategy and creating integrated leadership development programmes.
I must apologise that the quality of the audio is not higher. This was due to the interview being held while Michelle was on a car phone in New York while I was in the UK. But she has such great insights to share I wanted to use the interview anyway.
