Join us for our latest In Conversations session, to consider the role of emotions in creating productive organisations, engaged employees and effective leaders in today's society —

Whilst the awareness of emotions has increased in the past decade, organisations are still behind the eight ball on how best to harness emotions in order to ensure positive employee, customer and organisational outcomes. 

Our panel of experts question whether attempting to create a 'happy' workplace is a pitfall in today's society, discuss how emotion in the workplace can best be harnessed to your organisation's advantage, and prompt you to think critically and commercially about emotions in your organisation.

Combining the unique perspective of our 3 panellists, we explore topics such as:

  • Why negative emotions aren't always bad;
  • How society's expectations of work have changed the emotional landscape of both organisations and leadership;
  • The climate we need to create for employees to be as productive as possible and how this differs for different occupations and industries;
  • The role of emotions at the individual, team and organisational level;
  • Interplay of emotions and different generations and how leaders can navigate this; and
  • The connection between emotions in the workplace and mental health.

Trevor-Roberts' In Conversations Series provides unfettered access to industry leaders who share deep insights from their experiences in an open, conversational forum.
