About this event

In the corporate world, it is often the loud, boisterous and perpetually busy types who garner attention, get promoted and who serve as role models for the younger generations. Yet research shows these qualities have nothing to do with effective leadership. A March 2022 Gartner survey identified human leadership as the next evolution of leadership, with 90% of HR leaders believing that leaders must have a more humane focus to succeed in today’s work environment; another Gartner survey from the same period found that just 29% of employees think their leader is a human leader. So, what is human leadership and why is it important? Join us in this interactive session to learn why human leadership is essential in today’s workplace and what it looks like in practice.
