Video descriptionEach era has its own senior executive profile. This profile is the unique characteristic that defines senior executives at a moment in time. For example, from 1980 to 2001, there was a sharp decline in corporate ""lifers"" ascending to senior positions, and a corresponding uptick in rapidly advancing young executives. So what defines those in the top corporate jobs today? In this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Peter Cappelli, director of Wharton's Center for Human Resources, and a co-author of the HBR article ""Who's Got Those Top Jobs,"" shares findings from new research about the evolution in the profiles and career paths of those who have made it to the top. He sheds light on the career trajectory, education, demographics, and diversity of those in the senior ranks, and examines trends such as more women in senior positions, more leaders who were educated outside of the U.S., and more movement of rising executives between companies.
