We have moved rapidly through a significant evolution in work culture and practice with significant challenges surfacing. As employees and leaders alike are suffering burnout, finding ways to manage overwhelm is a constant priority. Sensitivity is necessary. 

Lisa and I explore why setting boundaries is so challenging, what to do about much needed connection, and why we need to look beyond what we’re doing to how we are doing it.

We also explore improving the efficacy of our communication by marrying intent with impact. Tune in for some remarkable insights on the value of sensitivity at work.

Having honed her skills in senior HR and Organizational Development roles in large Canadian and global companies, Lisa is the principal Thought Partner and Results Coach at Green Apple Consulting. She uses her strategic and practical approach to help Talent Management Leaders embed programs that elevate organizational culture and drive results. She is also host of the podcast “Talent Management Truths” and monthly interactive Talent Talks.
