Video Recording of Session

"Your story speaks to my story." This reflection on the power of our stories to impact each other was shared with Renee Smith by her learning group consultant, Ginnie Beldon Charles. In this session, Renee will share her story of following her curiosity, using her opportunities, and taking bold action, believing that we need to have an impact on the world. Wondering what it takes to create a workplace where customers are satisfied and employees can truly thrive, she came to believe that it takes decreasing fear and increasing love to foster a human workplace. Love? Yes love. Learn insights from Renée Smith’s primary qualitative research on fear and love. Hear the story of its application in a system of 60,000 employees. Grapple with accountability in a loving workplace. Learn a tool that can be applied to any challenge to bring more love. Gain insights into how to improve psychological safety, engagement, and performance. Reflect on standing for love in organizations as a practitioner. Connect to the love embedded in your own OD practice, and inspire your commitment to make organizations more human!
