“We want people internally that are prepared, ready for transition, and as good as or better than anyone we could go out and get somewhere else.”

- Wanda Hayes, Senior Director, Learning Development, Emory University

At Emory University, a leading research university located in Atlanta, Ga., there wasn’t always a pool of qualified internal candidates to fill open leadership positions.

To change that, it sought to implement a talent management strategy and build a leadership pipeline that would prepare leaders at multiple levels and individual contributors to successfully transition into next-level leadership roles when they became available.

In this video, Wanda Hayes discusses the challenges that came with not having enough qualified internal candidates, and how, level by level, Emory built the leadership pipeline it needed.
