Speaker:              Mita Fitzjohn (https://www.mitafitzjohn.com/)

Topic:                 "The Neglected Front-Line Leader" - Front-line leaders are often promoted based on their performance in a non-leadership role, it's assumed that they'll be great leaders. Many of them don't have the leadership skills needed to do well and also don't get the direction and coaching they need. As a result, their employees suffer from unclear expectations; not being held accountable; and not being recognized appropriately. Many of these leaders' careers are stunted in this role. The leader, their team members, the organization and clients/customers are negatively impacted.

Learn about the risks associated with this practice and ways to give your front-line leaders the up-skilling they need to thrive in their roles and achieve sustainable results for themselves, their team members and the organization.
