The pandemic has shifted what matters most to people. How can you know the impact 2020-2021 has had on your culture? What will foster the culture you want as you reintegrate teams?

Session 3 – Your Strategy – We are exiting a crisis in the middle of technological, environmental, and talent-based revolutions. What does a revolutionary recovery plan look like?  

Session 4 – Measurement – We reject claims that “no one knows” how the future will pan out. How can you create metrics and dashboards that keep you ahead of trends? How do you measure hard-to-assess employee needs, interests, and shifts before they emerge as issues.
