Make Work More Human.

Renee Smith

This training will be conducted live via Zoom. 

What does it take for customers to be satisfied and employees to truly thrive? Renée Smith, MSOD, discovered that it takes decreasing fear and increasing love to foster a more human workplace. Love? Yes love! Renée will share the story of following her curiosity and passion, taking bold actions, and discovering the extent of the impact that is possible when we do! Learn insights from Renée’s primary qualitative research on fear and love, and reflect on your own experiences. Hear the story of its application in a system of 60,000 employees. Grapple with accountability and learn a tool to apply to any challenge to bring more love. Gain insights into how to improve psychological safety, engagement, and performance. Reflect on standing for love in organizations as a practitioner, leader or change-maker. Connect to the love embedded in your work and inspire your commitment to make organizations more human!

In this session you will...

1. Learn three things to do and five things to avoid to create a more human workplace.

2. Understand the role of accountability in a loving workplace or team.

3. Learn the neurophysiology of fear and love.

4. Practice using a tool to apply love to any workplace challenge.
