Driving High Performance Through Employee Development

Employees who don’t see a path for growth or feel comfortable receiving feedback are more likely to be disengaged or resign, and decades of research has proven the need for leaders to have higher levels of empathy to inspire learning and guide growth. It’s also the underlying foundation to shifting to an open, continuous feedback model – moving away from the annual review once and for all.
