Don’t miss these exciting episodes that will help you lead more effectively by making your environment safer and more sustainable. The second episode of this series addresses the area of environmental wellness that ties into personal safety. Any place that your physical body is located is considered your physical environment. Anything that goes on in your physical environment can impact you mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. So, it is critical that your physical environment be safe in all those ways and be a place that reduces fear, vulnerability, and contributes to your empowerment. That is your responsibility to yourself as an individual. In addition, as a leader you are responsible for the personal safety of your coworkers within the workplace. If you have not already, you need to take steps to strongly influence policies related to workplace violence, domestic violence, substance abuse, and other acts that put the safety of employees at risk. If you are not aware of the policies, then become aware of them. Workplace safety is not just the responsibility of Human Resources. It is everyone’s responsibility. Listen in to this engaging episode as your host, Monique, discusses how you can lead better by enhancing this dimension of environmental wellness.

Leading with Intention

Thursday at 9AM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Challenges in the workplace and within teams is only increasing as companies struggle to transition to a post-COVID 19 remote work situation. These unstable times have stretched companies and their leaders beyond their capacity, and they do not know how to maintain a balance of authority, empathy, compassion, and assertiveness toward their coworkers, much less continue their own career trajectory. Leading with Intention offers support, encouragement, and tools to help corporate leaders address their personal shortcomings and emerge from these unprecedented times as well-rounded, self-assured leaders. The show focuses on execution - helping leaders learn how to improve soft skills, leadership competencies, and work-life balance. Most importantly, how to ensure that their organization is in alignment from the top down, including leaders and their direct reports.
