Ready or Not... We're LIVE with @dessalen in the first of our new #TeVE series. Today we're talking about "Getting it Wrong: What Every Leader Wants to Avoid" 😣. Follow along #TeVirtualEvents #BringPeopleTogether
Outdated conversations can lead to old ways of thinking and aren't in line with #virtualleadership in current times. Great #leadership starts with self-awareness! Self awareness is the foundation of emotional intelligence 💜 #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #BringPeopleTogether
Making people aware of #bias doesn't mean there will be action seen. They aren't necessarily connected. Awareness doesn't have much value to your team without actions.

"Don't make declarations that aren't supported by actions" - Dessalen Wood #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents
How do you have true conversations that lead to action? How do you build trust to have these conversations? 🤔Have you really built trusted relationships with your team? #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #BringPeopleTogether
Building trust at scale can happen through frequent communication with your team. Keep this outreach consistent for #EmployeeEngagement and they will be able to understand your motives and incentives.
Communicate transparently, and communicate often.

If you thought the cat pictures🐈‍⬛were good, you'll love Dessalens #StarWars pictures ✴️. She has an incredible way of presenting relevant & current leadership examples that will keep you on your toes ⚡️ and fully engaged! #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents @dessalen
"How dare you not know the thing that I learned yesterday".

Can you relate to this? You're not alone. Leaders need to be agile and help their teams be agile also. #digitaltransformation #leadership #virtualleadership
What IF I get it wrong?
How do I start the conversation?
I don't want to say the wrong thing?

There are ways to look into your own leadership levels before you can help others. #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #Leadership
What can organizations do to help? Action over assurances. Show courage not just in what you ask but in how you listen. #Leadership #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents
Helping Leaders be prepared: Prepare for the conversation that you need to have. Be focused on asking questions. Move from talking points to powerful questions. Acknowledge you don't have all the answers. #Leadership #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents
What to do if you get it wrong? 🤔
Apologize and admit mistakes and blind spots. Express gratitude when someone corrects you. Listen to those who have been injured or silenced and commit to doing better. Then try again 💜 #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents
Running an exchange with our attendees to #crowdsource ideas on the content discussed today. Can you relate to this thought? How would you rate it? 🤩 The question asked is "What are your thoughts, questions or advice about leaders engaging in these kinds of conversations?" #TeVE
Themes! Our #AI found 4 themes in this conversation (in less than 5 minutes) so that we can easily determine the most important and relevant areas of interest for our attendees. #Crowdsourcing is powerful and scaleable! #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents #BringPeopleTogether
That's a wrap! (And also the first time we've heard @dessalen use the word "woke" multiple times 😁). Thank you to all who joined us! The 2nd #virtualevent of this "Ready... or Not" series is July 28th. If you missed this one, stay tuned for the recording! #TeVE #TeVirtualEvents
