As many workers begin to return to the office, anxiety about reinstating “normalcy” is skyrocketing, and it is becoming increasingly apparent that many workplaces can’t just return to “normal.” Speaking with host Dan Moore, author, award-winning company culture expert, and SparkVision Founder MaryBeth Hyland tackles the challenges of reinstituting a supportive and mindful physical workplace, identifying and doubling down on core values in times of hardship, the simple math equation for measuring company culture, and having “permission to be human”.
Author, speaker, and award-winning company culture expert MaryBeth Hyland engages with leaders within all industries to create possibility and ignite alignment between their values and their actions. MaryBeth is the founder of SparkVision, which serves as an unbiased partner to empower people to own their role in crafting culture every day, connecting “People Through Purpose”. Her awards include Circle of Excellence, Innovator of the Year, and Top 100 Women. She has a BA in Social Work, MS in Nonprofit Management, and over a decade of experience transforming workplace cultures into flourishing and connected communities, and is committed to values-based mindfulness in the workplace.
Whether your team is remaining fully remote, transitioning back to in-person, or experimenting with a hybrid, conscious leadership must pave the way towards our “new normal.” MaryBeth Hyland asserts that the key to easing anxiety and maintaining a healthy workplace culture, no matter what your team and workplace look like, is allowing your people to be human and ask for the things that they need – challenges/differences are now the norms.
Hyland’s recently-released book, “Permission to Be Human: The Conscious Leader’s Guide to Creating a Values-Driven Culture” shares actionable steps to connect with your team by identifying the factors that impact growth, your team dynamic, and ultimately align your collective goals to create a supportive and mindful workplace culture.
