New immigrants are the backbone of growth for many countries.

But how do you help these highly skilled people to develop quickly, especially in the area of leadership, so they can be successful.

Well fortunately on today’s episode of the Meeting Leadership Podcast, we’re interviewing Doug Piquette to learn about ‘How New Immigrants Can Grow Their Leadership Skills’.

  • About how the Edmonton Region Immigrant Employment Council provides mentors to help new immigrants accelerate their leadership journey
  • Why making assumptions is a disaster for all leaders (and how to avoid this)
  • The importance of volunteering to help build up your social capital and more
