It's time to level up and stop being nice!

Keynote Type: Opening - setting the tone for the event 

Themes: Leadership. Communications. Motivation.  Engagement. Change. Psychological Safety.

In a time where ‘psychological safety’ should be one of the most talked about phrases in the boardroom, Julie knows that it's not, and gets why!

Leaders have this idea that caring for their people means they need to be nice, aggreeable, pleasant, and fine. 

No they don't. Which is why Julie is here to give your leaders permission to stop being nice!

Leaders need to know what it looks like to create an environment that supports the psychological wellbeing of their people and achieves impactful business success.

Julie helps audiences move through their fear and has them levelling up their language so they can fully embrace their compassionate leader within. This is NOT a fluffy, gentle, motivational talk. This is setting the tone, showing them the how, and demanding of them to be the change they want to see around them. 

The language of compassionate leadership unlocks our ability to both care for our people AND get impactful business results.
