Real Talk about Humanity at Work
It’s a new day when it comes to talking about tough issues at work. Conversations that were previously off-limits are now permitted, even encouraged. People want to be seen and their voices heard. But can you—and team leaders and colleagues—ever really understand the people in your organization and the diverse issues they face? What can you learn from examining whose experiences are most valued and deemed worthy? And how can you apply an intersectional lens to your conversations about power and opportunity? Day 1 of Real Talk offers deep learning about what it means to truly value and respect employees’ lived experiences.
Real Talk about Making a Mistake
Turn your missteps into next steps. Because change is a constant, stumbling is inevitable. Sometimes you know what went wrong and have an instant moment of regret or horror. Sometimes you simply “don’t get it” or you can’t see the unintended consequences of your actions. Or perhaps you recognize the mistake but still feel upset when someone gives you feedback. Built-in processes to proactively address individual, leadership, and organizational mistakes are a must for cultivating empathy and humanity at work. Does your team have the support and tools they need to acknowledge mistakes, learn from them, deal with personal resistance, own their impact, and plan for the unexpected (or failure)? Day 2 of Real Talk focuses on how to not let fear or discomfort block you from creating a workplace where everyone is valued and treated fairly.
Real Talk about Becoming Better
You and your organization must do the work to create a truly equitable and inclusive organization that values our humanity. There is no magic formula. No short-cuts. No quick fixes. Inclusive culture change can happen when we all invest in both organizational and personal growth. Change also is more effective when we don’t just focus on fixing what’s broken, but when we pour our collective resources and ideas into building on what’s working well. Day 3 of Real Talk features candid dialogue about the science of organizational and personal change so you can apply lessons learned and think differently about how to make real progress at the big-picture level and individually.
A limited number of all-access packages, available in bundles of 25, 55, and 85 tickets exclusively to Catalyst Supporters, which include on-demand access to Real Talk content for one month following the event.
