A Discussion on Compassionate Leadership in the Re-Opening Workplace

Recorded July 26th, 2021

A recent survey found that over 40% of the global workforce is considering leaving their job this year. As leaders, we have been navigating one friction point after another over the past 500+ days – and many of us are exhausted and worn-out.

How do we navigate the challenges of the next phase of the pandemic as compassionate leaders?
