“Keeping Your Employees (Engaged) in the Next Normal”

During the pandemic, we learned that leading in a crisis required different skills than leading under normal circumstances. When things began to stabilize enough for employers to begin planning their return to the office, leaders discovered that many of their employees would not be returning. This session will look at how the Pandemic has changed many employees’ priorities; what employees are seeking in this next “Normal” workplace; and the skills needed to more successfully lead in an environment that is more supportive and flexible and provides for greater employee engagement and involvement.

Presenter: Christine Reinhard, M.A., M.S., ACC Executive and Leadership Coach, CHRYSALIS COACHING
