About the Webinar

Nonprofit employees, as well as directors and boards, often struggle to balance priorities within their organizations, which influences how well they can collaborate together. There is, however, a solution that your nonprofit can implement: building and sustaining psychologically safe workplaces, resulting in more sustainable and productive organizations.
At CCL, our research with almost 300 leaders demonstrates that teams with high levels of psychological safety showed greater levels of performance, along with lower levels of interpersonal conflict.
Watch this webinar as we discuss how nonprofit leaders, directors, and boards can use the building blocks of trust, candor, and inclusive leadership practices to increase psychological safety and drive positive culture change. We’ll share specific stories and practical examples of what leading inclusively truly looks like in an organization.

What You’ll Learn

This session will break down critical methods for building successful communication and inclusive work culture, including:

  • Building psychological safety between nonprofit employees and leaders, and between directors and boards, to improve communication and collaboration
  • Leadership tactics to establish trust through authenticity and vulnerability
  • Methods for fostering a sense of belonging via inclusive leadership practices
