Consciously Profitable: Psychological Safety is a MUST

Recently I was a guest on Lauren LeMunyan's Spitfire Podcast.  Lauren and I are both coaches who work with executives to become consciously profitable.  The question is, how?

Leaders who are executives and business owners have to keep up with legislation, maintain profitability to retain value within the company, and rely on people to make those things happen.  As if that isn't tricky enough, those leaders have to lead people who, in 2021, are dealing with the pandemic - working remotely and isolated, while dealing with the social reckonings of the lack of equity, inclusion and diversity.

No one wants to be part of the problem.  Everyone wants to offer a solution.  What is a leader today to do?

In this interview we talk about legislation that is in the Senate for committee review that will impact M&A activity for startups.  We also tie it to the questions that Victoria M. Grady poses in a recent article for leaders who want to be value added to their teams in transition.  Finally, we discuss our upcoming webinar, "How To Create A Psychologically Safe Team" on Monday, April 12th, 2021.  In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What’s Working and What's Not in DEI Strategies
  • The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety and What You Really Need to Pay Attention To
  • The Next Steps to Building Your Inclusive Leadership Strategy
