Early Career Network: Leadership - how to prepare and support your team during difficult times

Difficult times occur in every organisation, and it is imperative that we learn to support our team during these times.

The Early Career Network brings together future leaders from a range of WIG member organisations. Training ourselves to be future leaders is essential to the running of any team in any organisations. The network will help you build connections with your peers, and develop the skills and knowledge to move ahead in your career.

It is imperative that we work together to create an inclusive, safe and supportive environment in order to thrive in our work and personal lives.

Hear insights from a senior HR professional on how you can support your team during difficult times and prepare in advance a support structure that will create a safe, strengthened team.

Come along and share your views, with our speaker and audience, on the ways which you can support your team during a crisis.
