[On-Demand Webinar] Speak-Up Culture: When Leaders Truly Listen, People Step Up

WORK CULTURE WEBINAR hosted by WorkTango

As the Andy Stanley quote goes, “Leaders who don’t listen will eventually be surrounded by people who have nothing to say.” And, that silence is dangerous.

Poor leadership can lead to toxic cultures and missed opportunities, with senior leaders becoming increasingly removed from the truth and the experiences of their team and customers. This can result in failure and disaster.

Watch the recording of this Work Culture Webinar with renowned leadership speaker, coach, and author Stephen “Shed” Shedletzky. He demonstrates that in a speak-up culture, leaders have the skills and attributes to hear ideas, concerns, voices of dissent, and even mistakes. They encourage and reward others for using their voice.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about:

  • The two main questions of a speak-up culture: Is it safe? Is it worth it?
  • The destructive impact of toxic positivity and gaslighting on people, teams, and cultures
  • Tactical and proven methods to listen to your people and cultivate a feedback rich, speak-up culture

Speak-Up Culture shows you how creating such an environment is the responsibility and advantage of every leader who wants to be great at leading, and who wants to create a better version of humanity while they do.
