Let’s face it, whether you’re seasoned or newly minted, being a manager is complex and highly rewarding. Helping people to step into their best selves means that you have a lot of power, and it’s important for you to be aware of it. In this talk, we’ll discuss the ways in which managing can harm or uplift people. We’ll then talk about how you can focus more on building and how to take ownership if you’re caused harm. To wrap it all up, we’ll explore how you can create a safe, inclusive environment that allows you AND your team to be works-in-progress, working to improve yourselves, one another and your company.
