As powerful leadership development, the Future Leaders eXperience addresses one of the food industry's most challenging issues—the workforce. Organizations across the entire industry need emerging leaders to bring new strategies to life.
The curriculum, developed in partnership with the Root, utilizes art and science to connect and build. Using visuals instead of spreadsheets, stories instead of fact sheets and experiences instead of memos, the Future Leader eXperience is helping to change cultures, transform managers, alter the trajectory of organizations, and accelerate success.
