Buddy Hobart, Founder and President of Solutions 21 recently spoke inside F & M Bank's Franklin Room on the topic of The Evolution of Leadership.
Hobart's presentation focused on this unprecedented era in which four generational groups attempt to coexist in today's 21st century workplace, and the challenges that creates for today's employers.
Afterward, a panel of local and regional leadership development experts addressed the topic of attracting and retaining next generation leaders.
The panel included Bradley Jackson (Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry), Anna Krajewski (Walmart Distribution Center), Burns Phillips (TN Department of Labor & Workforce Development), and John Watz (North Tennessee Workforce Board).
About 30 local business leaders enjoyed the educational discussion, and a delicious lunch from Nicoletta's Catering.
