WIBF and Wells Fargo invite you to this virtual Personal Excellence event led by Mark Fryer of ABSTRACT.

Psychological safety creates high performing teams. Where it exists, people feel free of interpersonal risk so that they can raise difficult, risky or controversial ideas without the fear of being shut down, ridiculed or punished. The best talent is wasted if people feel unable to speak up. The instinct to ‘fit in’ and ‘get along’ stifles new ideas, new solutions and critical thinking required for companies to innovate.

In this webinar we show how it starts with the leader being a role model and creating a culture where people can safely and confidently be the best they can be.

Key take-aways:

  • To demonstrate how strong and considerate leadership is now an essential requisite for an empowered inclusive, psychologically safe workplace culture
  • To appreciate how treating colleagues with dignity and respect through everyday regular and consistent interactions builds High Performing Teams
  • To encourage you to lead by example by enhancing your thinking and behaviours
