There are more job openings than there are people to fill them. The power is back in the hands of the employee. Never has the war for talent been so high up on the minds of your CEO's. Creating a development culture that enables you to hire the best, retain the best and build talent from within will differentiate your business from mediocrity. One of the key pieces of creating a development culture is investing in your people, especially the leaders at all levels. Aligning them to your values, and motivating them to model the right behaviors, connects your workforce to a higher purpose. Having a disconnect between the cultural aspirations you put on your website, annual report, and hiring interviews, and the behaviors of your leaders will eventually lead to unnecessary talent turnover. Learning objectives:

  • Bring back to your workplace a simple and effective way to create psychological safety
  • What can blind us from our own safety in HR
  • Connect your values to your leaders in a way not seen before
  • Use brain-based learning techniques to motivate positive behavior change your teams
