How can leadership support safe conversations at work?

How can leadership support safe conversations at work?

Join us for our second event in our ‘getting practical’ series, where we’ll explore what exactly is needed in the workplace to enable safe conversations.


About this event

We hear a lot about the power of safe conversations at work – where team members feel they are safe to have their voice heard, without fear of judgement, humiliation or punishment. We know that enabling safe spaces is so important for teams – it leads to safety, innovation and growth. But what does this actually mean for us in practice? If we know it is so important, what can we do as leaders to actually embed this in how we work?

In our second event in our ‘getting practical’ series, we’ll get into the details of creating and nurturing environments for safe conversation and explore what this actually means for our day-to-day work. Focusing on our own experiences and leadership journeys, we’ll have space to explore and share our stories, as well as sharing tips and advice to practically make this happen.


Our Speakers

In this session we will welcome:

Our speakers will help to add inspiration and advice, as we focus on the practical side of enabling safe conversations. We’ll ask questions like:

  • What does a safe conversation actually look like?
  • If we know it’s so important, what makes this so difficult?
  • What are the actual steps we can take to enable safe conversations
  • Whose role is it anyway? What does leadership have to do with this?
