Session Description: What qualities to you look for in an ideal workplace? When you read articles about the need for trust and recognition, how do you link this to creating a learning environment? In this session, we’ll analyze how varying levels of competency trigger different needs and we'll have some fun relating it to our teaching, coaching, and performance management!
