About the event
Various factors, including but not limited to the effects of the ongoing pandemic and the disruptions it has left in its wake - such as the “Great Resignation” and acute worker shortages - have led organizations to rethink their approach to issues of employee motivation and engagement at a far deeper level than had been the custom so far. The concept of psychological safety in particular has seen an upsurge in interest, by far the biggest surge since Edgar Schein and Warren Bennis first coined the term back in 1969.
In this brief webinar, we will distill the thought leadership on the subject from authors and researchers such as Amy Edmondson, Tim Clark, Brené Brown, David Rock, and Matthew Syed to name a few. What we will propose are 3 major behavioral changes that leadership can implement in order to help their organizations attain a level of safety that unlocks peoples’ agency and intrinsic motivation. which in turn are the keys to organizational antifragility and true innovation.
What is this event going to look like ?
- This event is an Agile Leadership Bites webinar-discussion designed to make the most out of your precious time to learn an actionable leadership practice in just 30 minutes.
- In the first 20 minutes, speakers will introduce the practice with lively stories and examples. We’re going beyond the concepts (that you can read about anywhere); we show how the practice can be used in the real world, exploring both strengths and limitations.
- The last 10 minutes are dedicated to discussion with participants. You can ask questions either in chat or voice. You are not required to participate actively (but you’ll like it if you do!).
- During the event, you are encouraged (but not required) to keep your webcam on to make it a more human experience.
