Today’s business environment is increasingly marked by employee stress and burnout, reduced engagement and loyalty to employers, labor market turbulence and skills shortages, and succession and diversity issues. These challenging trends facing corporations have prompted increased interest in finding ways to promote leadership development and wellbeing in organizations. Join Dr. Sosik as he presents results and implications of a soon-to-be published longitudinal study of the role of formal mentoring in fostering higher levels of employee wellbeing and commitment, and development of transformational leadership.
