Being a leader is about a lot more than your degree or job title. “Soft skills,” from communication, to conflict resolution, to creative thinking, mean just as much (and usually more) than any physical tools you could have in your kitchen or office. Don’t miss this special interactive panel, presented in collaboration with the Institute of Culinary Education, which will explore critically important ways to grow in leadership, whether you’re the boss or the newest hire on the line.
