Leading Forward to Work-A Four Week Guided Journey

Course Code: 01-09-M648

Make your team’s future more human!

As a leader today, you face complex challenges to adapt to so many changes it can be overwhelming. These include shifting staff needs and turnover, managing a distributed, hybrid team, and shifting customer expectations while also grasping the new opportunities that come with disruption.

Are you concerned about burnout and stress for your team members and for yourself too? Are you looking to positively impact the ongoing struggle for justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion? And do you wonder how to create a high-quality employee experience and team performance in these times?

If you answer ‘yes’ to these questions, then this workshop is for you.

Over the course of four weeks, you and peer leaders will spend an interactive two-hour session each week understanding the solid business case for a more compassionate way of leading, while also moving step by step on the “Path Forward to Work”. Each session will guide you to reflect and take actions required for success. You will work through a series of essential questions and exercises in the workshop sessions, develop quality relationships with peers, and take actions after each session to move forward with your team. At the end of the four weeks you and your team will be well on your way to moving forward to the new future of work.

Instructor Renée Smith, the founder and CEO of A Human Workplace, has spent years conducting research to understand what makes a workplace more human and effective.

Renee brings all this know-how together in this four-part workshop to help leaders like you have the tools, skills, and mindset you need to Lead Forward to Work, because there is no going back!

The structure of this workshop with four sessions over four weeks means you will go step by step along the path with time to reflect, apply what’s important for you and your team, and integrate your insights in ways that matter most to you.
