Episode 5: The Power of Belonging
Belonging at work means that you feel seen for your unique contributions, connected to your coworkers, supported in your daily life and career development and that you are proud of your organization’s values and purpose. A lot of the responsibility for developing this within teams falls to new managers and middle managers. So it’s an increasingly important skill as companies prioritize their employees’ sense of inclusion in every way. But it is also a very complex thing to manage as teams become more and more diverse.
In this episode, we will explore the key elements of building a culture of belonging in your team, how to work against bias, the pitfalls of being an insider, and how to be an ally.Transcript
