Toastmasters International-The Internal Combustion Engine of Leadership

Opportunities in the Great Resignation

The past few years have seen many different shifts in the professional and corporate world. Many employees have transitioned to working from home or hybrid environments, while others have reimagined their career paths completely. These shifts and the continued pandemic have sparked The Great Resignation, an ongoing economic trend in which employees have voluntarily resigned from their jobs en masse.

In this session, Toastmasters Past International Director Susan Zhou will discuss how The Great Resignation relates to leadership development and organization strategy, as well as how to develop individuals and organizations to reach their potential during these changing times. She will share how leaders can understand the changes in the digital age and transform challenges into opportunity; she will also discuss the importance of organizations developing motivated, focused, engaged, and reliable leaders. Join her as she highlights her professional experiences of coping with changes quickly and effectively through strategic planning.
