Walking the Path Toward Innovation and Growth

Walking the Path Toward Innovation and Growth

As the working environment changes, so must the way we manage our employees. Today, employees are coached rather than directed, receive just-in-time feedback rather than annual feedback, and concentrate on strengths instead of weaknesses.
