By A More Beautiful Way with Bethaney Wilkinson
Chapter 5: Embrace Cultural Change - Psychological Safety and Belonging w/ Liz Fosslien
Insight: You have to adopt new and more liberating values, and behaviors, if you want diverse groups of people to flourish as they follow you.
Action: You have to practice liberation and you must embody a new way of thinking and leading.
To add texture to this insight, I sat down with Liz Fosselien, an illustrator and the co-author of the Wall Street Journal best-seller No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work. Liz is an expert on how to make work better. As the Head of Content at Humu, she helps teams and leaders develop the skills and habits that allow them to unlock their full potential.
She regularly leads interactive, scientifically-backed workshops about how to build resilience, how to help remote workers avoid burnout, and how to effectively harness emotion as a leader. Her work has been featured by TED, Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, The Economist, and NPR.
In our conversation, we talk about Liz’s professional journey as well as what it takes to create psychological safety within your organizational culture. Check it out!
