ACT Ready for Work

Podcast Episode 26:
Training Workforce Ecosystem Leaders for Success
with Guest Dr. Anthony Edwards

The region's workforce ecosystem is only as strong as its leadership. Joining us on episode 26 of Ready for Work, author and consultant Dr. Anthony Edwards helps guide us from his new book, Building a Winning Workforce: A Playbook for Employers, Government Entities, Colleges & Schools, Workforce Development Agencies, Economic Development Organizations, Chambers of Commerce, & Nonprofits.

Later in the podcast, we'll listen to this leadership in action as Missouri's governor celebrates job creation and growth in Certified Work Ready Communities.

"People really a) are always limited for time, and b) we don't always know what other people in the ecosystem do."
