About the Webinar

This is session 1 in our series, Propel Your Future Leaders. Be sure to explore the other sessions as well:

In the first of our series of webinars on how to propel your future leaders, we’ll explore ways to reduce workplace barriers and cultivate a climate of psychological safety and resilience for leaders under 30 based on our recent research on emerging leaders.

Psychological safety creates space for younger leaders to make meaningful contributions and bring in their new perspectives. In addition, concern over burnout and high-stress environments can act as workplace barriers and prevent young professionals from stepping into leadership roles. We’ll share practical strategies you can start using right away to foster psychological safety and resilience for emerging leaders in your organization, reducing the workplace barriers that are holding them back from leadership roles.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What types of things act as workplace barriers, preventing employees under 30 from stepping into leadership roles
  • How psychological safety and resilience can be key levers for encouraging young leaders to grow their leadership capacity
  • Specific strategies you can use to enhance feelings of security and wellbeing for young leaders to reduce workplace barriers to their success
  • A simple experiment you can implement to foster psychological safety and resilience in your organization

Help build resilience and reduce workplace barriers for your emerging leaders with our resilience-building solutions, which will help you and your leaders avoid burnout — and burn bright instead.
