Ushering Leadership Development into the 21st Century

In our increasingly complex and disruptive world, we need to be able to adapt and navigate the waters of adaptive change. This means we need to rethink how we define and develop leaders.

Brené Brown recently completed a 7-year study of leadership and organizational culture. She asked over 150 global C-suite leaders what needs to change for leaders to be successful in a complex, rapidly changing environment. The one common answer was: We need braver leaders and more courageous cultures.

This whitepaper redefines how we look at leadership and offers insight for what it actually takes to develop EVERYONE to show up as a brave leader and how to leverage that to create more courageous workplaces.

Red Flags in Workplace Wellness Research: How to Spot Them and What They Mean

The health promotion and workplace wellness industries are not shy about promoting the efficacy of their initiatives. Unfortunately, conflicting research can make it difficult to know what to believe and who to trust. Additionally, many health promotion and wellness professionals (and most people generally) do not have sufficient training and experience in statistical analysis or research methodology to be able to decipher for themselves what conclusions can genuinely be drawn from the scientific research.

This paper will offer insight for thinking critically about claims made by study authors or others who promote research in these industries, through the lens of seven common “red flags.” These red flags are examples of flaws in research methodology or inaccuracies in the resulting claims that it is important for literature readers to understand. Health promotion and workplace wellness professionals can use this paper as a guide for objectively evaluating the literature and its associated claims.

Watch our Webinar! 5 Key Rehumanizing Principles to Transform Your Workplace

Our world is rapidly changing and becoming increasingly complex. There is an acronym used to describe this reality that originated from the U.S. Army War College more than 2 decades ago and, in recent years, has become widely used in the business world. VUCA - volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. In a VUCA world, the rules of business need to evolve; psychological safety is easily disrupted, inherently triggering people to operate from a place of scarcity and self-protection rather than from openness and collaboration. Unfortunately, stuck businesses neglect to acknowledge this new disruptive reality and have become increasingly dehumanized, making workplaces the 5th leading cause of death in the United States and accounting for 8 percent of our healthcare spend.

Quite simply, organizations that can’t adapt to the demands of the world today and tomorrow will become obsolete. The antidote is to leverage 5 key principles that rehumanize our workplaces and communities. In this webinar, Dr. Rosie Ward previews her new book with Dr. Jon Robison, Rehumanizing the Workplace (published by Conscious Capitalism Press) by exploring the 5 key principles that are universally at play for more flourishing workplaces and communities.
