Rapid change is a major challenge in every business, but it also creates the opportunity for growth, innovation and emerging leaders to step up. In today’s quickly shifting environment, workplace leadership is more important than ever. To effectively institute changes, organizations should identify talented leaders who understand the psychological journey of front-line workers and are up for the challenge to embrace the new.

With organizations around the country rapidly implementing change management initiatives, why is now the right time to identify and develop emerging leaders in your workplace?

In this episode of HR Break Room®, host Caleb Masters is joined by Cloud and Melo to discuss:

  • the core leadership traits that define every great leader in 2020
  • how an organization’s culture is defined by the style and personality of its leaders
  • why now is an essential time to identify and develop leaders
  • how to build a leadership program using technology
  • ways to get buy-in from executive leaders for leadership development programs in the current environment
