Sound Bytes: Lifelong learning and leadership development with David Blake
David’s vision through The Future of Work Studios aligns with the Sounding Board belief that the development of leadership skills is one of the most critical challenges companies face, and that the market for scalable leadership coaching is exploding.
According to a recent PWC Annual Global CEO Survey, one of the top threats noted by CEOs was the availability of employees with key skills. As modern organizations go through disruptive change, there is a dramatically increased need for HR leaders to strategically partner with companies like Sounding Board in order to develop the leadership bench required to grow their organizations.
