Must-have skills for leaders to engage, create and retain top teams

The ‘Great Resignation’ continues – the pressure on burned-out teams is intense. So how can your organisation develop leaders to support, engage and retain your talent? Our Survey reveals the skills and character traits of 2022’s most effective leaders – and how organisations can build them now.

Wellbeing, engagement, talent retention – in today’s high-stress workplace, the three-go hand in hand. So, how are you developing your leaders to ensure these three elements drive, rather than hinder your performance in 2023?

At a time of worker burnout where excessive voluntary resignations are the norm, how are you equipping your leaders to reverse that trend? Are they creating a healthy workplace culture that supports and builds high performing teams?
