TITLE The Challenge of Creating a Speak Up Culture in the Workplace
DATE Wednesday 18 November 2020
TIME 11:00 - 12:30
South African Standard Time
(GMT +2).

It’s one of the hottest leadership topics right now, and it should be no surprise - no leader wants to hear about ethical wrongdoing in their organisation only once it has appeared in the public domain.

Having systems in place for your people to raise their concerns and share their insights with confidence is essential - but only succeed in their objective when you successfully create an internal speak up culture.

This is easier said than done - and you need to understand why, despite your open door policy and encouragement - your people still have difficulty raising issues and sharing critical information with their line managers or HR departments.

In this webinar we bring you the latest, evidence-based insights into the challenge of creating a speak up culture.
In turn, you will be able to craft a practical action plan for immediate application.
