Heart First Method for Every Leader-Communicator to Lead with Impact


At a time when so many employees are feeling stretched, disconnected and overwhelmed by the challenges of our new working reality – and businesses wrestle with significant change and cost pressures – communication leaders are looked to for answers.

What can communication leaders do to stay in tune with the needs of the business and be responsive to employees’ biggest needs and desires?

As David Grossman has discovered through decades of work with effective leaders – especially during the past two years of uncertainty and social unrest – the key lies in “Heart First” leadership. Heart First leaders who champion empathy, humanity and authenticity in the workplace set themselves apart because they build stronger, trusting relationships, which improve engagement, retention, and business results.

In this workshop, Grossman shares the best strategies and tips for Heart First leadership with a special focus on the unique role of communications leaders who wear two hats: one as leaders themselves, and a second managing and influencing a critical and complex set of stakeholders. Both hats are vital to building and protecting the employee experience and the business.

Attendees will:

  • Understand what “Heart First” leadership is and how to make it a gold standard for how to lead & make the workplace better
  • Explore why a Heart First approach to leadership is good for business
  • Learn how to better equip themselves for today’s reality
  • Know the specific steps to take to thrive in challenging times
