I’m very passionate about today’s topic. Lately, I have witnessed leaders neglecting it on numerous occasions. The negative impact of their neglect is significant—involving both human and business costs. Though my natural instincts ignite a protective ‘mama bear’ reaction, I know the best antidote to neglect is growing awareness. So, here I am today, inviting you to lean into learning with me on this topic. 

What is this topic, you ask? Well, it’s the most important job of a leader: creating a healthy work environment that brings out the best in your team. I know it sounds cliché, but I promise it’s so much more than that. To truly understand it, we need to follow the science and explore how the human brain perceives and responds to workplace dynamics.

I recommend watching both videos in sequential order.

I can’t leave you hanging there, so here’s a quick introduction to the SCARF Model (developed by Dr. David Rock, NeuroLeadership Institute). Please stay tuned as we dive into each SCARF element over the next five weeks. I want to ensure these stick so that you are equipped and ready to apply them at work and beyond.
