Don't treat your people like babies, treat them like ... puppies?!

Leaders often think of – and are told to think of – themselves as a parent and their people as children. This is inappropriate, wrong-headed, and unproductive. Leaders should think of their people as puppies. You heard me right. Check out why.

The Future of Work

A haven for digital natives, where innovation ignites, and society (as a whole)  becomes your company’s most essential stakeholder. The future of work is flexible, inspiring, and limitless. But with each new possibility, comes challenges. Amidst all the bustle, human resources will serve as the vanguard to resolve these universal growing pains.

Inevitable: The Future of Work profiles leaders at the helm of today’s most revolutionary workplace movements. We demystify their processes, challenges, and solutions to empower listeners to stand at the cutting-edge, discover new skills, and become fearlessly agile.
