The New Business Acumen

Anne Hill, from the Future of Talent Institute, is also a broadcaster and writer for Huffington Post
There is a new capability in business acumen—a keenness and quickness at understanding and acting on changing business dynamics and the potential of innovation. The influence and careers of those who have it are growing. A new divide is at work. In this webinar you will learn how to systematically and effectively build this acumen, get on the right side of the divide, and support people at all levels of the company to do so as well. Talent leaders are called upon to be innovators -- taking the lead in shifting organizational priorities to provide a better environment for recruiting, developing and retaining people. Dr. Todor will offer ways to support your role as a change agent -- with tools you can share with others. Dr.Todor will be interviewed by Future of Talent's Anne Hill, a broadcaster and writer for Huffington Post.
