Leadership Reimagined: Making Work More Human
Join us for a lively conversation with Rasmus Hougaard and Ellyn Shook, moderated by Alyson Shontell.

With the backdrop of a prolonged pandemic, global turmoil and new hybrid working models, what lies ahead for work and workers?

Despite these challenges, there is progress. For example, organizations are taking greater responsibility for their people’s holistic well-being and actively seeking to earn their trust. This means a greater, more urgent focus on fostering employees’ emotional and mental health; creating cultures that build stronger connections among them, no matter where or how they work; and meeting their need for purpose in their work lives.

Leaders have an opportunity to operate from a revised playbook that is now more grounded in people-centered leadership qualities, such as compassion, presence, courage, and vulnerability. With a new emphasis on the “human,” leaders can drive higher levels of engagement and performance in their teams and better deliver on bold solutions for this new era of work.

Join us on September 19 for a very special edition of Leadership Reimagined.
