In this episode, we call BS on a billion dollar industry - leadership training. The topic that keeps most CEO's up at night is people, and leadership skills are at the heart of this challenge. Companies are investing within leadership training and development in unprecedented numbers, yet we haven't moved the needle as employee engagement is at an all-time low. Our guests, Roger Manix & Bobby Alexis of Play-Rx, help us call BS on leadership training and provide a new way of thinking about leadership training through play and emotion intelligence.
