Siemens AG Global Talent Expert on "Leading in an interdependent world" at the Axiom Revolution Conference

In the era of current economic recession, wherein emerging markets are also experiencing slower growth than expected, its is clear that those organizations which have the best leadership practices, would respond to these challenges better than others. Organisations are scrambling to understand the impact of these crisis on Business and People as well.

It is imperative for the organizations to leverage potential of their leadership and retain the most critical talent. To do this, many organizations introduce new talent practices, leverage current ones but at the same time, it is imperative to focus on readiness of the talent, prepare them for growth , develop the most relevant leadership and business skills and invest in targeted development actions.

While organizations put efforts in retaining and developing talent, at times they face real practical bottlenecks in this journey. This poses us to answer some of the important questions such as what are the key drivers for talent development? Are we developing talent pipeline in the right direction, aligned with our business strategy? Are we doing "Right Things" or merely focusing on "Doing things right" in such a crisis situation?

To achieve an organizational growth, it's a mutual responsibility of both – what we intend to do for talent and how talent intends to reciprocate this ? What do we mean by effective engagement practices, does the talent perceive them similarly?

And lastly, how do we lead in an interdependent world?
