The leadership development firm will moderate a panel of L&D experts and thought leaders from various industries. Panelists joining the online event include Nick Foote from apparel company Carhartt, Lauren Kelley from tech giant Google, and executive coach Laura Knights from Knights Consulting. Attendees can expect to hear diverse perspectives on challenges that resulted from mass employee resignation also known as The Great Resignation. The roundtable guest speakers will also share insights into new strategies that organizations should consider when recruiting, retaining, and developing their future leaders in the current economic market.
“I don’t think any employer was fully prepared for the mass resignation that started during the pandemic and although the labor shortage presents many challenges, it also forces organizations to think differently about L&D and create new strategies for developing a robust leadership bench” says Stephanie Judd, co-founder and partner at Wolf & Heron.
Wolf & Heron offers informative online and in-person events for L&D professionals, salespeople, marketers, and product managers. This upcoming roundtable is a part of their effort to deliver experiences that help organizations shape high-performing leaders.

“There is no one-size-fits-all approach when training employees or developing leaders, so it’s critical that organizations deliver customized programs that align with personal and organizational goals,” says Kara Davidson, co-founder and partner at Wolf & Heron.
