Heart To Heart: The Language of Leadership: Consciously Using Language to Create Engagement
October 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
What words comes to mind when you think of leadership? For many, they often reflect a more masculine value system, one that has been around for centuries. But 21st century problems require teams that are integrated across the gender spectrum. Join us for an in-depth discussion on how leaders at all levels can use communication to create better gender balance, more intentional inclusion and a deeper awareness of when and how words can be used by leaders to create a more engaging working culture. We’ll be exploring some of the barriers around stereotypes, the potential impact of leadership language on employee health and wellbeing, and sharing action steps leaders can take for themselves and for their teams to create a working environment where everyone can thrive.
