HBSAB – Authentic Leadership Communication: Connecting with Employees Post-Covid (virtual)

Tue, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
General PublicCareer & Leadership


The contract between employees and leaders no longer exists. With the Great Resignation, employees demand a rewrite that speaks to what we all learned during the pandemic:

∙ We want work that is meaningful

∙ We need opportunities for social connection

∙ We need diversity and for all voices to be valued and heard

∙ We need balance with our health and overall well-being

Leaders want to respond…because, frankly, they need this workplace too. But most don’t know how.

In this webinar, leaders learn how to speak to these fundamental needs and bring humanity back into the workplace. Based on cutting-edge research from the field of positive organizational scholarship, the session shows leaders how to build a humane workplace that also achieves business results. These practical solutions are a necessity for leaders, but can be used by anyone who wants to build a better workplace.

Attendees will learn:

● What employees want in this post-pandemic world and how leaders can address these needs while also achieving business outcomes

● The five most powerful communication behaviors to connect with your employees

● How to adapt to our new hybrid landscape while fostering deep connections among your teams

Participants must register by NOON on March 6th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
