Next Generation Leadership

Posted By Sandra Wiley, Thursday, July 23, 2015

"I think we are messing up when we talk about Next Gen Leadership; it’s current day leadership... What they're asking us to do, is current leadership; more collaboration, more communication, more involvement from everyone that’s in the room. More involvement from everyone at all levels of the firm."

Sandra Wiley adds perspective to the generational issues regarding leadership.
