Join Seasons Leadership Co-Founders Debbie Collard and Susan Ireland as they talk to Stephan Wiedner, co-founder Noomii.com and Skillsetter.com, about his passion to unleash the collective potential of people, how to build psychological safety and practice leadership skills. 

Show notes:

Feeling apathy at work (2:45)
Stephan shares his own story of struggling to find meaning in his work before he moved to working in human performance with a focus on technology. Stephan relates that he is working on concreating leadership skills because lots of goals in the leadership realm can be ambiguous. By concreating leadership skills, he believes he can better create a system for leaders to learn and practice them.
 
Building psychological safety (10:40)
Stephan explains his definition of psychological safety and how recent protests caused him to rethink his original definition. Stephan links psychological safety and apathy at work, citing a study that asked people to what extent their voices mattered at work. The leaders discuss how their missions align.

Actionable advice to help leaders abolish apathy (22:38)
Susan and Debbie ask Stephan for actionable advice listeners can apply immediately to help combat apathy at work. Stephan encourages listeners to attune themselves to what might be causing others in the room to not be as open or candid as they could be. Stephan tells listeners about a special offer for a complementary assessment (see details below).
