TORONTO, Feb. 3 /CNW/ - This winter senior executives from Canada Post,
Rogers and Deloitte will share their unique leadership development success
stories with business audiences across the country. Hosted by Nexient Learning
Inc. Canada's largest corporate skills and talent development company, this
national Executive Speakers Series spotlights the significant results these
top organizations have achieved by linking their strategic objectives to
innovative development programs.
Canada Post, Rogers and Deloitte are creating the next generation of
corporate leaders through programs designed for our challenging, ever-changing
business environment. In Nexient's Executive Speakers Series, attendees will
hear firsthand how leadership development is helping these impressive
companies increase employee engagement, strengthen managerial effectiveness,
enhance internal communication, and, ultimately, meet business objectives.
"The Leading Edge Program certainly was a contributing factor on improved
employee engagement which demonstrates the enormous value of implementing a
leadership development solution," said John Duncan, Vice-President, Human
Resources at Canada Post. "Nexient's breadth and depth in skills development
expertise and offerings, and its commitment to meeting our goals, were vital
in enhancing competencies, which strengthened employee engagement and
performance throughout our organization."
The series kicks off in Vancouver on February 4, and Calgary on February
5, 2009, with Canada Post offering insights on how its Leading Edge program, a
customized leadership development program, has more than just increased
engagement but has benefited the organization in achieving a common approach
to coaching and communication. The series continues in Ottawa on February 19
when Rogers takes attendees through the company's first-ever national
leadership development program, the CSTD Gold award-winning Managing Matters
Program. In Toronto on March 5, Deloitte executives discuss how a focus on
managerial effectiveness resulted in improved business strategy
implementation, as well as the delivery of more consistent client experiences.
"Research and our extensive field work confirm that aligning leadership
approaches with our customers' business strategy provides the best foundation
for ensuring an organization's long-term viability and competitiveness," said
Jocelyn Bérard, Executive VP Leadership and Business Solutions, Nexient.
"We're excited to share this knowledge by bringing top executives across
