Webinar: Managing Change Through People Leadership

For those of you who joined my Webinar with Hibob, you’ll know that my approach is FAR from HR (even though that rhymes). It’s about managing change through PEOPLE leadership!

In modern day, fast paced, high growth businesses, we need something more transformative. Hence (one of) Unleashed’s mottos: HR is dead, long live People! We’ll start by looking at some key steps to creating…
