Event Details

Strategy and execution are important, but too often the importance of people and culture are undervalued when planning strategy and executing plans. Jude Rake believes this is why so many recent studies have revealed alarmingly low engagement levels at many companies where workers don't know how their efforts connect to their company's goals. Further, the increasing influence of women in business and the attitudes of the millennial generation are fueling a workforce that expects more emotionally intelligent leaders who understand that fully engaged workers deliver better results. The leadership bar is being raised and Jude will discuss how you and your team can stay ahead of the curve.
