About the Event

If there is one thing Covid-19 has reminded us it is that, first and foremost, we are all human beings with lives that include family, interests/hobbies, and challenges that go far beyond 9 to 5. Yet up until now, companies and leaders have been slow to build an environment where people really do come first. What are the warning signs that your leadership and your people strategy isn't working? This session will highlight the leading indicators that tell you a problem is brewing and explore case studies and real examples of leaders who understood the value of a true partnership with their people. Learn what this new economy demands of those leading their people and how to build a team or a company that others want to follow.
