How CIOs Can Build Resilient Cultures Remotely

Many CIOs are trying to effectively manage high-speed change without causing employee burnout and stress. To effectively drive rapid transformation, CIOs must learn how to manage change as a continuous process. This has never been more acute than in 2023 where resiliency and uncertainty continue to affect ‘business as usual’. Join Marcia Goddard as she shares science behind how the brain deals with uncertainty, how a physiological stress response can actually lead to growth, and how the skills and behaviours underlying resilience are the deciding factors in determining whether people and organisations are able to achieve positive growth in times like these. Specifically, Marcia will discuss:

  • How CIOs can create psychological safety in the workplace, which is at the core of preventing employee fatigue and burnout
  • How to build and integrate wellbeing into the fabric of your company culture to better manage change
  • What factors to keep in mind when building these cultures remotely
