Softening The Edge

By 2021, estimates suggest 46% of the workforce will be comprised of and be led by millennials. By failing to proactively nurture empathy in our future leaders, we are failing to protect our future.

Today, most of us do not enjoy our work, burn out is at all-time high, depression is impacting over 33,000,000 people and the younger generation is leaving the corporate workplace in droves. We need an intervention. Softening The Edge looks to be exactly that.
