VIRTUAL EVENT SERIES

“Have Hard Conversations the Right Way.”

In the past, organizations proudly stated that your personal life should stay where it belongs—at the door when you arrive. But the impact of COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement has accelerated a needed change in this outdated work paradigm.

Whether it be about race, mental health or #MeToo, leaders are expected to have difficult discussions with their teams. Yet they often feel ill-equipped to do so—usually because they may say the "wrong thing."

Join us to examine how this change in leadership expectations has come about and what some innovative organizations and leaders are doing to engage in these challenging conversations.
