  • Let’s face it: Our world is changing, and your organization should reflect those changes. Being aware of those around you and not only respecting them but having a genuine appreciation for them and their differences will create the kind of inclusive culture that is needed to drive an optimal employee experience. While basic research has shown that diverse and inclusive teams are better at problem-solving and fostering a global outlook, HR professionals still struggle with building strategies for the modern workplace that maximize belonging at all levels. When advanced from a human and humane perspective, diversity challenges can become valuable opportunities for workplace inclusion, increased productivity, stronger team collaboration, and competitiveness amongst your market peers. Leaders who know how to cultivate positive emotion tap into an endless well of psychological capital—hope, optimism, confidence, resilience, and belief—that has the power to keep people and teams innovating, which creates value and more success even in tough times. You will leave this session with real, tangible, and actionable steps to build a better workplace culture, where employees can thrive, using a proven method for culture change.
