Why Elon Musk Fired The ENTIRE Twitter Board As CEO

If you've been watching the news lately, you're probably aware of Elon Musk taking over Twitter and firing the entire Twitter board in a surprising move. 

The implications of Elon Musk's actions remain unclear, but what does this mean for the company's culture, employees and users? Is Twitter doomed?

In this week's episode of While We Were Working, Joey and Sommer analyze the reasons behind Elon's strategy from an HR perspective, whether it might pay off eventually or not, and what to expect in the future. 

Sommer and Joey also discuss the general need for proper management training. We've all seen lousy management lead to unhappy teams and ineffective leadership. This issue is exacerbated by the fact that managers get their role in most companies because of seniority, not for their management skills or training.

Is there a way to break this cycle and provide efficient management training that could significantly improve your team's performance and satisfaction?
