305 Leadership in Motion: Delivering Impact and Elevating L&D

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Thursday, July 27

Through a real-world, targeted project, we will explore the opportunities that arise for L&D to elevate its position within the organization. You will learn about strategies to help you leverage outside contractors and effectively "quarterback" the efforts, ensuring that L&D remains in the lead role. Discover how this approach can not only elevate L&D's standing but also preserve and strengthen its relationship with the C-suite.
