This Content is for All-Access Passholders Only

The last year Covid-19 was a test of leadership, of which many leaders failed.

In this talk, Kelsey will discuss the key trends and challenges facing business leaders in a post-COVID world, exploring what employees want and need in the current context of the Great Resignation; how to manage people for results versus attendance; the importance of leading with empathy; and how to foster collaboration and build culture in hybrid work world.

  1. Talent retention in 2021 and beyond.
  2. How to manage for results vs. just attendance.
  3. Leading with empathy.
  4. How to better foster collaboration and build culture in hybrid environments.
