Course description

Creating Safety and Connection for Long-term Success

Psychological safety is one of the hallmarks of the most successful teams. The rich soil of inclusivity allows diversity to grow organically and authentically. Investing in building this foundation of safety, based on a foundation of inclusion, will drive long-term success, retention of top talent, and meaningful innovation. In other words, the sustained growth and result

The ability to be trusting and vulnerable in the work setting is another key foundation of safety and security. Leaders will learn how to create a culture where employees are heard without judgement, can work in the manner that suits them best without guilt, and are comfortable admitting when they make a mistake or need more help.
