View from the Bridge: How to be an effective leader in 2017

January 31st, 2017

A WORD FROM THE TOP
Gong hei fat choy!

2017 is well under way and many of our clients have indicated that this is the year that they will focus on developing their existing leaders and their leaders of the future.

It is commonly accepted that leadership in the 21st century requires more emotional intelligence than it ever did in the past. We have curated a couple of articles below that provide some great information on 5 powerful habits of good leaders and leading in a millennial workplace.

Vertical Bridge is pleased to be offering, in partnership with Virginia “Joy” Smith of Grace Consulting, an innovative new “Leadership Series” that has been designed to bring your leadership team into the 21st century. If you would like a copy of the full program syllabus please let me know and I would be happy to send this to you.

We look forward to working with you in 2017!

Warm regards,

 

Sandra Reder

President & Founder
