Make Work More Human (1 Day) - Virtual or In-person


What must today’s leaders and team members do to create an environment where customers are satisfied, team members thrive, and organizations flourish? Together they must create A Human Workplace! Wise, successful workplaces of the future (and now) work in concert with human performance factors not against them, welcome diverse people to bring their true selves to work, and value essential human skills.

In this workshop you will spend a full, interactive day understanding the solid business case for a more humane and compassionate way of working. This workshop explores the impacts of fear on human and organizational performance and makes the case for increasing a culture of love in the workplace. Love? Yes love. At work? Yes at work.

With that foundation, you will gain understanding in the role of accountability and the basics of love not fear in action. Learn how to lead and be in a team using a new tool and practice that helps you to put love in action in the face of any challenge. Make a plan to address your specific, current needs and walk away with an inventory of strategies for common workplace situations. Cap the day with essential practices to care for yourself while you care for others especially when under stress. Come away inspired and equipped to build a more human experience in your organization that can lead to exceptional performance and meaningful work and life.
