Speaker: Alexander Alonso, PhD, SHRM-SCP is the Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM's) Chief Knowledge Officer .

Leadership has been a chief lever in succeeding during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations strove based upon effective leadership even more than people management. But as HR leaders, how do we know when leaders are making the subtle mistakes resulting in quiet quitting, resignations, and disengagement. Data from SHRM research indicates the persistence of seven deadly sins, which were amplified during the pandemic. Dr. Alex Alonso, SHRM's chief knowledge officer and renowned workplace columnist, will provide insights into these deadly sins and how managers can overcome them. Moreover, he will help HR leaders identify these behaviors with the aim of remediating them.
