About Chris Estes, MBA, SHRM-SCP:

If I had to brand my approach to People Leadership, it’d be this: Every aspect of the employee life cycle revolves around three key pillars. Performance, Engagement and Development. Every interaction with an employee in those areas is an opportunity to re-engage or disengage them. It’s the People team’s role to equip leaders with the tools and skills necessary to navigate those interactions. It’s the leader’s role to learn to do it well.
