Manager Working Group
Updated for 2024:
Leading with Compassionate Accountability
Accountability doesn’t have to mean punishment. It can come from a place of empathy. Compassionate Accountability is the ability to balance these two critical pieces, particularly in the changing workforce.
Even great managers can struggle with recognizing & supporting employees through personal or collective trauma. Are you looking for ways take your leadership skills to the next level and better meet the needs of your team? Do you want more practical strategies for demonstrating emotional intelligence at work? Have you heard about “trauma-informed leadership” but don’t know what to do? Would you like to promote resilience in your team? Are you seeking more tools & practice to have those difficult conversations?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, we are here to help.
