Kedren Crosby, President of Work Wisdom LLC., talks with our president, Steve Gilman, about workplace culture, burnout, and the key to building a thriving workplace.
Creating an emotionally healthy and successful work environment isn’t merely the antidote to burnout, it also is the key to unlocking high-performing teams. In fact, with all the changes the pandemic ushered in 18 months ago, workplaces look, feel, and operate much differently than they did previously. And while humans remain very much the same, the way we interact with our work environment has evolved, not only physically — but emotionally, too.
No one knows this better than Kedren Crosby, President of Work Wisdom, LLC. Kedren has devoted her 25-year career to writing and presenting on workplace issues ranging from burnout to work-life integration, conflict management to communication best practices, and everything and anything in between.
To Kedren, workplace culture isn’t a plaque on the wall or words on a document somewhere. No, it’s much deeper and more nuanced than that. In fact, she realizes culture is more about how we actually get things done than how we say we get things done.
In this episode, we dive into the factors fueling burnout (hint: it’s not what you think) and The Great Resignation, as well as what thriving workplaces and individuals truly look and feel like, given not only the current landscape — but the one to come as we look to a post-pandemic way of integrating both work and life.
