Webinar: Executive Leadership

Webinars: Executive Leadership

Based on a Korn Ferry Executive Assessment tool, this webinar series delves deeply into five key competencies.


The basis for all the programming in this track is the Korn Ferry Four Dimensional (KF 4D) Executive Assessment tool, which the executive recruitment firm Korn Ferry uses in some searches. In collaboration with Korn Ferry and drawing on Korn Ferry's course book, FYI: For Your Improvement—Competencies Development Guide (available to members for $95 at www.kornferry.com), WIHCL uses the KF 4D Global Competency Framework throughout the series.

While the framework is made of of 38 competencies, WIHCL and Korn Ferry, working with general counsel, have identified the five competencies that have the most important impact on an in-house counsel's career trajectory. WIHCL members participating in this track are required to take the KF 4D assessment (free to WIHCL members). The results will form the basis for the first webinar session.

All sessions, unless noted, start at 11 AM PT/1 PM CT/2 PM ET and run for an hour.
