Creating Safe Spaces for Tough Conversations at Work

Tough conversations are exactly that: tough. They might involve topics that include heated opinions, arguments, or biases. But having these conversations doesn’t have to be negative, and can be a great way to improve your company culture. Join diversity, equity, and inclusion expert Sterling De Sutter Summerville as he discusses how you can allow space to have challenging conversations within your team or organization. Sterling first shares tips for creating an environment with built-in safety for all employees, then builds on this to review the elements of environments that strive for inclusion. He then dives into why conversations like this can get so heated, and what you can do to maintain a safe space for all parties to express themselves. Finally, Sterling covers concepts that support safe spaces, including company culture, a sense of trust, and collective buy-in. If you’re looking to engage more meaningfully with those around you and help others do the same, check out this course.
