Our new report, coming out later this month, reveals the secret to unlocking employee potential. The key? Creating a feeling of psychological safety in work groups—showing employees you’ve got their backs—which is absolutely critical for cultivating the right conditions for inclusion and innovation. Based on a survey of over 250 Australian professionals, it builds on our previous research on inclusive leadership. Look for it on or around August 25.
And if you’re in Australia, join us on August 26 in Sydney to discuss the findings with the author of the report and other Australian business leaders.
