PEO Leadership Aims to Help Businesses Get Sh*t Done Fast & Fair
PEO Leadership, a firm offering executive leadership support, offering a webcast with industry experts on creating more equitable workplaces
TORONTO, Canada – (April 6, 2021) – A recent report from Gallup shows that organizations that have made a strategic investment in employee development report 11% greater profitability and are twice as likely to retain their employees. Based on their research, one of the most important factors in creating a high-performance workplace is instilling a high-development culture that values the growth of individuals. The leaders who want to learn how to create a business environment that empowers its employees are invited to attend a complimentary webcast with New York Times bestselling author of the revolutionary leadership book Radical Candor, Kim Scott, and diversity and inclusion expert, as well as co-founder and CEO of Just Work LLC, Trier Bryant. Scott’s most recent book, Just Work: Get Sh*t Done Fast & Fair, provides actionable solutions that managers and employees on all levels can implement. The webcast will be held on April 22, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST.
“This webcast is essential to any company wanting to create a culture that is based on collaboration and empowerment,” explains Leon Goren, president and chief executive officer of PEO Leadership. “When you tap into the strengths and talents of everyone on your team, you will be able to maximize productivity and engagement. Just Work reveals a practical framework for both respecting everyone’s individuality and collaborating effectively. This is a talk you don’t want to miss.”
We – all of us – consistently exclude, underestimate, and underutilize huge numbers of people in the workforce even as we include, overestimate, and promote others, often beyond their level of competence. Not only is this immoral and unjust, it’s bad for business. Bryant and Scott will be discussing their framework of how we can recognize, attack, and eliminate workplace injustice, while transforming our careers and organizations in the process. They will provide practical suggestions for what we can do, today, to clear away the distraction, injustice and inefficiency of inequity so we can just work and focus on doing our best.
Those who tune into the webcast will learn:
How to get the most out of your employees
How to create an environment of collaboration and inclusion
The framework of creating a culture of empowered and motivated employees
How to identify workplace injustices and how to avoid them
How workplace injustices are bad for business
How to transform your organization for the better
“My first book, Radical Candor, did a great job painting a picture of how things ought to be at work: we get more done and we like each other better when we care personally and challenge directly. But I couldn’t create BS-free zones at work if I was in denial about the nature of the BS,” writes Scott. “Radical Candor works, but it is easier for straight white men to put it into practice than for anyone else. That is a problem. Just Work is equally for everyone. When we clean up misconceptions and the behaviors that go with them, we build happier, more productive workplaces.”
In addition to co-founding Just Work LLC, a company that provides guidance on how to create a productive organization that focuses on collaboration and respect, Scott has formerly been a CEO coach for Dropbox, Twitter, and other top brands, as well as been on the faculty at Apple University, AdSense, YouTube, and DoubleClick. Her co-founder, Trier Bryant, is the chief executive officer of Just Work LLC. She is a combat veteran, strategic executive leader, and has over 15 years of experience in the fields of tech, Wall Street, and the military. She has served in leadership roles at Goldman Sachs, Twitter, and Astra. Bryant advises leading companies like Equinox, Airbnb, SoundCloud, Alto, Rockefeller Foundation, and others on their talent and DEI strategies.
