Cultivating leadership

Compassionate leadership in uncertain times

Join experts as they explore ways to lead with empathy, vulnerability, and awareness in today's environment.

There’s a lot of talk about creating an inclusive workplace culture — especially right now. Employees are dealing with unprecedented stress, fears, and hardships, and they're doing their best to focus on the work in front of them. But sometimes the pain of what's going on around them requires a moment of support. How can you truly approach this by "caring forward" as a leader? How can we weather this for the long term, and what do we need to do for ourselves, our teams, and our organizations to get through the pandemic?

Leaders haven't been trained for this. There aren't any blueprints or books to follow. But we know that leading from the head alone isn't enough. While empathy, vulnerability, awareness, and a growth mindset are always important, they're even more vital these days. In this session, Tiffany Stevenson, Chief Talent & Inclusion Officer and Global Head of Communities at Box, will moderate a fireside chat with Dr. David Rock, cofounder and director of the NeuroLeadership Institute, a global initiative bringing neuroscientists and leadership experts together, that explores the skills and tools leaders need in order to support their organizations during uncertain times.
