Hello from New Hope, Pennsylvania (US).
Eglantine Gee

👏 Yes!
Chris Howe
01:02:18
Instead of asking questions (which for lean digital tools like slack can leave employees trying to read between the lines of what their manager wants them to say/do), I’ve found sharing my emotional state (Eg “I'm concerned about this, can you help me address this concern?”) has built relationships with my team digitally through covid
Kate Webster
01:04:04
@Chris Howe... also great modelling that we can talk about emotional states and ask for help...
Chris Howe
01:04:35
100%
Eglantine Gee
01:09:06
I love that Chris! Show how the survey results are being actioned!
Rasheed Joseph-Young
01:10:37
This is really tricky Chris - a segment of the employee population do not like to hear no to their ideas or suggestions.
Ryan Smith
01:10:59
^^^
Kate Webster
01:11:17
...and it also gives leaders the opportunity to speak to the organization about other options you hadn't even considered first... again, thinking about the outcome you are aiming for can be helpful…
Nicole Jackson
01:11:39
I practice a feel the fear and do it anyway. :) Find that it gives my colleagues permission to be authentic themselves. Model the communication that I really appreciate from my co-workers. Brave space :)
Kate Webster
01:11:54
nice, Nicole!
Donna Denny
01:12:52
I don't think surveys work at all. Too tricky to try to remain authentic and speak with conviction on changes and then not being able to make them happen. You can be a transparent good communicator but you have now done more damage with the survey than good because employees realize that even when they voice their concerns through the survey they don't get results.
Kate Webster
01:14:16
I often speak with clients about whether they are only asking the questions they are prepared to do something about... a lesson I learned as a parent - Never ask a question you dont want to hear the answer to!!
Nicole Jackson
01:14:33
As a First Nation we do this daily! Teaches through the story by providing examples and building connection
Laura Sukorokoff
01:14:59
Yes, Kate! If you don't want to know or act on the answer, you probably shouldn't ask the question.
Ryan Smith
01:15:47
Thanks Chris
Charvi Negandhi
01:16:14
Thank you for that wonderful insight, Chris!
Kathy Pinder
01:16:28
Thank you Chris! That was GREAT!
Nicole Jackson
01:16:40
Thank you Chris, makes a lot of sense
Cindy Hunter
01:16:41
Great advice, Chris!
Deborah Fox
01:18:43
I love that Nicole, First Nations has been amazing at story telling and a great model
Alexi Marchel
01:19:24
Thank you Chris Lee, that was a really insightful presentation!
Kate Webster
01:24:14
I think it is important to differentiate between having a positive intent and being nice... too much harmony in a group can get in the way of psych safety just as easily as too much disharmony…
Alexi Marchel
01:24:29
Thank you everyone for your comments here so far - you are highlighting that emotional vulnerability is essential in fostering trust and connection in teams.
Kate Webster
01:24:46
and while intent is critical, the impact also needs to be considered…
Nicole Jackson
01:28:43
QUES: Having a challenge currently with phycological safety as a comment on a webinar created a huge conflict around territorial acknowledgment and opinions of its "waste of taxpayer money". I did not and still not feeling psychologically safe as a Gitxsan born and raised in BC. We do have follow up and I am approaching it as a teachable moment. But how do you share your reality and how unsafe you feel, AND express that in an effective way to people who don't know enough about Reconciliation and our Action Plan for All Ministries.
Alexi Marchel
01:29:19
Hi Kate! Thank you for bringing this up - yes, thinking about intent versus outcome is a lens that is needed to steer away from toxic positivity.
Shannon Vadnais
01:29:27
There is a Q&A box to ask questions
Kate Webster
01:31:35
@Nicole... such a good question…I think there is some privilege assumed in the guidance to be vulnerable... we are not all standing on the same ground to begin with…
Justyna Poray-Wybranowska
01:32:18
such a good point, Kate
Alexi Marchel
01:34:11
Hi Tannis! Yes, a copy of the recording and sources will be sent out after the webinar.
Nicole Jackson
01:36:24
Especially with the Action Plan and Reconciliation we as a whole Ministry are implementing and staff reactions. Going to be challenging and we need to have safety practices in place for sure!!
Kamran Ahmed
01:37:00
Michael, can you unpack your comment:"I hope no one here has been arrested" especially with regards to the comments you are making about courage and gusto.
Brian Hughes
01:37:34
Appreciated inquiry has a role to play in the space. What insights may be provided on aligning this process with the broader cultural development?
Brian Hughes
01:38:30
That capture the questions without being asked! :)
Brian Hughes
01:39:05
Good session need to drop.
Lis López
01:41:19
What happens if the leaders that people are speaking up to, are in a position of power, pushing a culture of fear?
Kate Webster
01:45:09
@Lis…Sometimes all you can do is have an impact on the team you work with directly... is there space for you to model these behaviours in a way and at a scope that feel like a it of a stretch, but not unsafe?
Alexi Marchel
01:48:05
Hi everyone! We are at the final segment of the webinar today - please submit your questions in the Q and A if you have them!
Ryan Smith
01:48:22
Love that Farz
Lis López
01:48:58
@Kate, yeah absolutely, and that is totally aligned to what we can actually control, thanks for the advice! :)
Kate Webster
01:50:19
@Lis.. I love the quote from Arther Ashe “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
Nicole Jackson
01:52:13
Very true
Kate Webster
01:52:32
absolutely
Alexi Marchel
01:52:46
Kate - thank you for bringing this into the chat! It ties into the idea that allyship is a practice - it is a verb.
Nicole Jackson
01:53:05
Created my own discussion framework to keep myself safe
Esther Rzeplinski
02:02:26
So eloquent and spot on, thank you
Kate Webster
02:02:26
I have heard the statement “it may not be your fault, but you do have responsibility”… I found that helpful…..
Nicole Jackson
02:02:33
Great point Farzeen
Chris Howe
02:02:46
Well said Farzeen!
Sharon Jones-Ryan
02:04:16
I heard someone recently explain that they weren't looking for an ally, because they saw that as a passive relationship, but rather that they were looking for accomplices, people who were willing to action with them.
Alexi Marchel
02:05:06
Thank you Kate - the timing for your comment intersected perfectly with what Farzeen just said - we inherit our histories.
Lara Hernandez
02:06:07
7 or 8 is Great!! Thank you
Keri Laughlin
02:12:58
Do you think that people who've experienced bullying or oppression in their life (i.e. childhood), make good empathetic leaders?
