We’ve all heard the saying “employees join organizations, but they leave managers.” This is just as true today as it’s ever been. On this webinar, you’ll hear the WHY of this problem and learn proactive and reactive ways to solve leadership challenges. We will hit on topics like hiring or advancing the right leaders, and how to effectively coach managers to lead — not just manage. Join partners Emplify and PurpleInk to discover how we collaborate each day to measure and improve human capital challenges like this one.
