FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
La Jolla, CA, March 20, 2020 – Headquartered in La Jolla, California, The Leadership Edge, a life sciences organizational development company, just announced its plan to immediately transition one of its signature programs, From the Laboratory to Leadership, to online delivery in response to the Coronavirus. The program will be offered exclusively online as long as social distancing and working remotely is in place. During this time, the team is moving the popular program from a brick and mortar, group learning environment to a live, virtual meeting program while maintaining its relevant content, dynamic exercises and relationship building components.
After thirty years of serving the life sciences community, we consider you to be not only our clients, but also our friends. As such, the health of our community remains our highest priority.
Our mission is to develop great leaders and build high performing, values-based teams, who, through phenomenal science, will positively transform the quality of human health. As we find ourselves in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, our work together has never been more important.
Here are seven tips that will help you be a part of successful web-based meetings.
