With all that’s happening with COVID 19 and social distancing, many people are working and leading virtually. This is an unprecedented time for many work teams and leaders. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Leadership Expert Deborah Connors to share some ideas about keeping your team positive virtually.
Deborah is a prominent figure in the story of how Canadian workplaces have become better places to work through her development of The Better Workplace Conference, which she successfully led for 17 years. This powerful initiative created a whole generation of workplace health professionals and a huge community of practice.
In her book “A Better Place To Work: Daily Practices That Transform Culture” (2018), she has distilled the knowledge of hundreds of thought-leaders she brought together each year, combining it with her own leadership experience to provide practical advice for transformative workplace change. Deborah holds a BSC and an MPE (Health Promotion). She is a certified CMHA Psychological Health & Safety Advisor and Mental Health Works Facilitator, and a member of Wellness Works Canada and the Canadian Management Consultants (CMC).
