The Future of Work challenges ahead for us means that leaders will need to know how empathy and inclusivity will be critical in the future of work, especially with the rise of remote working and diverse workforce.

In this Masterclass by Dr Naeema Pasha leaders will gain valuable insights into enhancing their leadership skills with a focus on empathy and inclusivity. This talk aims to empower leaders with the knowledge and tools to lead with empathy and inclusivity, creating workplaces where every employee feels valued and heard. It’s an essential session for those committed to building a progressive and dynamic organisational culture. 

In addition, join us to learn about the excellent results of a leadership and culture development programme in VTT, leading Nordic research organisation. This is your opportunity to get first-hand knowledge on how Emotional Agency at work has significantly increased wellbeing, sense of belonging and psychological safety.
