May Topic: Leading and Growing in Challenging Times

Our current situation has impacted every HR and People Leader in many ways. We are being pulled in a variety of directions as we strive to support our business, our employees, and our personal lives. How are you balancing this pull?

As business and people leaders, how we respond to a challenge is more important now than ever before. How are you responding and serving your company, employees, and yourself right now?

Join Vanessa Brown, Vice President of Talent and Client Service with ML Talent Strategies, to discuss the importance of stepping up as a leader to ensure everyone is informed, well-connected, and engaged.

Vanessa will share 5 Strategies to Help You Lead & Grow through a Crisis and leverage this opportunity to rise above the chaos.  Great leaders, teams, and organizations emerge from a crisis stronger and more ready to thrive than ever before. Will you?
