Leadership and Loyalty™


Teach to Work [audio] with Patty Alper

On this episode we ask: Do college graduates have the necessary skills needed to enter the workforce? 

And, if they don’t, what can we as leaders do about it?

As a leader (in any capacity), you’ve likely encountered a college graduate applying for a position that they are highly qualified for…at least on paper, but rarely are prepared for in the real world. 

So how can we effectively prepare the next generation for the jobs of tomorrow?  

Well stay tuned because we are about to find out!
