How Do We Power Up? 🚀

Session Summary

We all want great, cohesive teams, but where do we start?

A simple definition of workplace culture is whatever people learn from other people, especially by interacting with them.

By knowing our purpose, our strengths and creating a sense of community, belonging and vulnerability, we can begin to craft a workplace where we thrive.

This can, in turn, lead to psychological safety, which Google recently showed to be the number one predictor of successful teams.
