In this safe space edition of Talent Talk, PeopleG2 CEO and host, welcomes Karen Weeks, SVP of People at Ordergroove to the show. We discuss how leaders can create a safe space for employees to talk about mental health, race, career goals outside of the company, and other uncomfortable topics. We dive into how managers should adjust how they give feedback when they have to do it remotely, and how HR and managers can build relationships & a sense of team/community with people dispersed across the company. Naturally, the conversation evolves into authentic culture.
In the next half of the show. Chris welcomes Dr. Ellen Reed, Mental Toughness Expert & Co-Author of Relentless Solution Focus to chat about mental toughness and the science behind RSF. Dr. Ellen taps directly into how to use Relentless Solution Focus in your work to succeed and stresses that people must retrain their brains to focus on solutions, rather than problems. It’s easy for us to say we’ll have a more positive approach – but hard to do in practice. Follow along and grow with fellow leaders as we explore company culture and mental toughness.
