    To register: 5 Questions You Must Ask Your Team-A Template for Creating Shared Purpose (Lunch Session)

    Program Summary: 

    If most managers are good people with good intentions, why do so many associates say such terrible things about their jobs? This empowering talk based on a popular article written by Stosh D.

    5. Apply a template to various workplace situations that require shared purpose
