Cultivating Happy and Harmonious Work Environments through a Leadership Culture

Office Employees


Many organizations experienced a shift in culture due to the pandemic, whether remote working or attending meetings via online meeting platforms; many organizations have not set a clear picture of the company’s cultural shift nor set a precedent as to a leadership structure within the organization. When organizations alter how they do business, it can change how individuals interact with one another and the leader. All members of the organization must learn leadership strategies so the organization can benefit from individuals who are competent leaders. When all members take stock in the effective operations of the business regardless of tenure, rank, or seniority, everyone chips in as a leader. In this workshop, Dr. Hughes will walk us through how to have organizational success by adopting a leadership culture.
