UNMUTED: How to show up, speak up and inspire action in our global world by Heather Hansen
Professional communication has become more complex than ever. With the rise of remote work, and the increasing prominence of online communication, we frequently find ourselves muted – quite literally. Even when we find opportunities to speak up, great ideas don’t always get the credit they deserve, or they drown in a sea of online voices.
Building upon research in organizational psychology, cultural studies and linguistics, Heather’s unique ‘Unmuted’ framework is designed to help you develop communities where open communication thrives. Learn what it takes to become a truly unmuted leader and how to increase innovation, inclusion and collaboration by inspiring an unmuted communication culture within your team.
In this interactive session, you’ll learn leadership strategies for:
– balancing loud and soft voices to ensure the best ideas are heard
– creating safe environments (online and off) where communication thrives
– identifying your biases to create a more inclusive team
– becoming an unmuted leader
