No matter where you live (unless you’re lucky enough to live in San Diego), you have to be prepared for the weather to change on a dime. That means having all the appropriate gear: umbrellas, snow scrapers, salt, sunscreen, hats.

Now consider the corporate equivalent. Are your people—in particular, your managers—prepared to weather the change storm happening in your business? Do they have the right gear or tools they need to thrive? Join this webcast for a fresh perspective on what it takes to prepare managers to thrive in and drive change. You’ll learn:
