Your CEO’s top worries are workforce related. The Global Leadership Forecast 2018 from DDI reported that building a leadership pipeline and retaining their top talent are worry #1 and #2. And they are right to worry, because a motivated workforce is truly a competitive advantage that ensures today’s top priorities are achieved and that people are learning, developing and growing in order to successfully address tomorrow’s challenges.
What'll You Have...What'll You Have? is chanted across the counter if you visit the iconic Varsity in Atlanta. Your response will most likely be a chili dog or two and a Varsity frosted orange.

Last month’s Forté Foundation, #PowerUp Conference hosted in Atlanta is still on my mind. Inspiring women as incoming MBA’s were the primary audience. They were each eager for a re-start of their educational journey. Their stories and dreams will set a new standard. Many of you are still on a high from the #SHRM 18 event.
