Attracting, Managing & Retaining Millennials in the Workplace, Chicago, IL (Loop)

This is the second of a series of panel discussions organized by the Leading With Courage® Academy on complex challenges, a.k.a., Leading With Courage® Moments, facing today's leaders.

The Leading With Courage® Academy has assembled a distinguished panel of experts to discuss this topic and to provide you with some practical insights, based on real-world experience, into questions you are struggling to answer.


This 90-minute discussion will be neither a deep nor all-answering dive into the issues. It's simply too complex a subject to cover in such a period of short time. However, you will leave the session more aware of some of the larger concerns, knowing the key questions you should be asking, and better prepared to continue the discussion back at your company.
