UrStoria - Episode 11 - Professional Development: Reinvention or Atrophy - Your Choice

In this episode, the choice is simple, we can reinvent or we can atrophy…which do you choose? Dean McAlister discusses why, if Professional Development is so important and can be linked to higher profit margins, does it get swept under the rug for more pressing priorities?
