HR's role in preparing leaders for the new world of work

HR has a responsibility to create the practices that maintain focus, create connectivity and ensure continuity between the most critical partnership in the world of work: that between the team leader and the team member.

Leaders require new and enhanced skills in managing from a distance, motivating employees toward a vision in the midst of ambiguity, providing calm and clarity, aligning work among team members and building community.

In this webinar, we look at the priority areas of leadership HR will need to address as their leaders navigate towards a new normal.
