"Erika worked closely with a group of our CHRO’s from across our portfolio of companies to develop and deliver a three-part series on Virtual Leadership Effectiveness. This multi-day workshop looked at the various challenges of leading teams that have moved to a hybrid of work arrangements during the pandemic. The materials were geared for CEO’s and their C-suite leaders and provided tools and techniques to improve their effectiveness leading remotely with a particular emphasis on performance management and sustaining cultures and engaging employees. More than 350 C-suite leaders attended the three sessions and were deeply appreciative of the tailored nature of the zoom webinars (which included lots of polling!) and the materials and resource library (which included lots of “tips” they could literally use right away with their teams). Many thanks to Erika for her close collaboration and being so responsive to the needs of our portfolio companies in such an unusual time for our leaders."
