Describing the contribution HR can make as ‘changing what work means’ and with a brilliant pie chart technique to illustrate, Ellis discusses the way people view their jobs and the role of work in someones whole life.
Ellis calls on you to see yourself as a gateway for people to live their lives differently. Introducing her approach to open leadership, Ellis shares techniques to support others to do the same and why this is beneficial for organisational performance, and society.
Discussing thoughts on celebrating diversity of human culture, Ellis advocates that there’s work for HR and Inclusion professionals to do on micro-aggressions and provides insights from her masterclasses on intentional inclusivity.
Topics in this episode:
- Being an open leader to change culture
- Changing what work means – the contribution of HR
- Practical and meaningful balance between life and career
- Micro-aggressions and intentional inclusivity
- Challenging people to tell their stories
- You are an instrument for change
