A03 – Managing People – Conquering the Soft Side of Your Job (LIVESTREAM) (LIOT70/21)

Event Description

You have probably heard the saying that “employees quit managers – not companies.”  Perhaps this has never been more true than now – when many people are working from home, and the only contact they often have with their employer is through their manager.  There can be no doubt that one of the most important parts of being a leader is cultivating a good team.  But how do you do that – especially if you don’t have a background in human resources?  In this course, we will explore how financial leaders can be better managers.  Through case studies, statistics, and sharing best practices, we will explore how to get the best from employees and create an environment that employees want to come back to day in and day out
