Although companies do a poor job of articulating them, in most organizations promotions to the executive or “C-suite” level are governed by a relatively few factors.

What are those factors and how can you both develop and display them to the satisfaction of the senior executives who make executive promotion and placement decisions in your organization?

What You Will Learn

  •  The core selection factors used in most organizations to decide who does and doesn’t get promoted to the executive level.
  • The key questions you need to answer in the affirmative in the minds of your organization’s decision makers to build confidence that you can succeed at the executive level.
  • How to tease out “the feedback that really counts”: how you are viewed by senior-level decision makers in terms of the core selection factors.
  • Career development strategies to pursue.
  • How to navigate some typical career dilemmas along the way.

The webcast includes an interactive discussion to address specific questions asked by members of the audience. While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
