How Has Culture and Leadership Changed One Year Since Covid Struck The Workplace?

In this episode, our panelists review their past year since Covid-19 struck the workplace and where they stand now from both a culture and leadership perspective.  Then, they show how to create a culture that thrives during uncertain times, along with tips for shifting strategies without a proven playbook and how to remain agile.  Also, we’ll realize just how important culture and leadership play in today’s “new normal,” or through any crisis, any shift in the workplace
