Exploring Employee Development: Insights from World-class CHROs (ft. JP Elliott, PhD)

I almost want to say that JP Elliott walked so that L&D Unlocked could run, but that would be a mischaracterization. Don’t get me wrong, the previous statement is, for the most part, entirely true, except for one key element – JP isn’t walking, he’s sprinting, and we’re just trying to keep up.  

A human resources executive with a resume spanning nearly three decades and listing such names as Taco Bell, IBM, Lenovo & DICK’s Sporting Goods, JP’s focus has recently shifted to educating the next generation of HR talent. And, as the host of the nationally recognized management podcast, the Future of HR, I’d say he’s doing pretty darn well in that mission.  

Whether it’s the podcast’s 100,000 annual downloads or big-name guests such as Arizona Cardinals’ Chief People Officer, Sean Mayo, or the “Father of Modern HR,” Dr. Dave Ulrich, it’s undeniable that Elliott has asserted himself as a leading authority in the world of human resources. Be it sourced from his own career experience or the multitude of conversations he’s hosted with world-class CHROs, JP has a wealth of knowledge that our host, Chris Elliott (coincidentally no relation…), could not leave untapped.  

Tune in to L&D Unlocked as the Elliotts delve deep into topics such as: 

  • Essential insights into discovering and conveying the credibility and ROI of L&D  
  • Employee & leadership development traps to avoid in 2024 and beyond 
  • The true mission of HR (Hint: HR is NOT about HR…) 
  • Keys to properly developing high-potential employees
