Registration is closed

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Executive Education Series sponsored by your ATD chapter.  Every 2nd Wednesday of the month we'll be presenting a thought leader in executive education coming from our most prestigious academic institutions and organizations across the state. 

Theory: Folks become like the five people with whom they spend the most time. What does this mean for work teams? This is a talk aimed at helping leaders and supervisors think through what it means when team members spend a lot of time together on the job and experience difficult events. At what point might the bond among them be stronger than the connection to the organization? 

This conversation takes special relevance in today's pandemic influenced F21 re-entry context. Takeaways will include some tools for leaders and supervisors to consider using during the challenging months ahead.
