The turnover tsunami is upon us, with some 40% or more of employees saying they’re now actively looking for a job. But that’s only part of the people battle for C-Suite leaders—there are boomer retirements, mismatches in skills, the remote revolution, worker safety issues, skyrocketing pay demands, generational gaps and seismic cultural shifts. Not to mention the flat-out lack of high-quality applicants for many jobs. It’s a whole new era of change, and it demands a whole new leadership tool kit—one that’s honed for attracting talent and retaining talent in the face of unending disruption.

Chief Executive Group, in partnership with AlixPartners, will help you get a leg up on the challenge with a targeted, expert conversation featuring two of the top minds in leadership psychology and talent development: Ted Bililies, managing director and chief talent officer for AlixPartners and Johnny Taylor, Jr. the CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management and author of Reset: A Leader’s Guide to An Age of Upheaval.
