  • Employee Retention Through Building Better Bosses – Why Psychological Safety is The #1 Conversation Law Firm Leaders Need to Be Having

    Date: September 14, 2022

    Cost: $75.00 - $85.00

    Location: Terminal City Club

    Overview:

    The BCLMA HR subsection invites all members to attend this in person event.

    Employee Retention Through Building Better Bosses – Why Psychological Safety is The #1 Conversation Law Firm Leaders Need to Be Having

    Ask any law firm leader their most pressing issues, and “attracting and retaining top talent” will be on their list. The future of work (which is here now) looks much different than the workplaces many of us have become accustomed to – command and control leadership is out, connection and collaboration is in. Did you know that up to 70% of employee engagement is based on a person’s direct manager? The writing is on the wall – competitive salaries, benefits and perks will only go so far. If you want to retain your top talent, you have to make your workplace “sticky”. And the best way to do that is to build better bosses – bosses who understand and connect to fundamental human needs.

    The challenge AND opportunity? This style of leadership has not been modelled to all, nor does it come naturally to everyone. Please join us for a discussion on psychological safety, which has been deemed to be the #1 driver of team effectiveness, and critical to employee retention, engagement, inclusion and belonging. In this session you will learn what psychological safety is and is not, and how to start building more of it, in yourself and within your firm.

    Our speaker will be Megan McAllister, a Professional Coach and Leadership Development Facilitator who has extensive experience leading Human Resources as part of national and international law firm teams. Megan’s presentation will be filled with research from credible resources and “stories from the field” in her years of working inside and outside of legal.

    Booking deadline  Monday, September 12 at 1:00 pm

    Please indicate any severe dietary restriction upon registration.

    This session will not be available via zoom.

    Balancing Life with Humour

     We are all jugglers and the first ball to drop is usually our own.

     Kate Davis has the unique ability to find humour in any situation and to offer creative solutions to defuse the frustrations in the home and workplace. Davis’ generous insight and outspoken character provides a powerful combination to help organizations empower their staff with effective tools for managing stress and sustaining motivation.

    Between our jobs, home, relationships with family, friends, and co-workers, learning how to balance our busy life demands a strong sense of personal development and, most importantly, a sense of humour.

    People who attend Davis’ “Balancing Life with Humour” lecture leave with an understanding of practical techniques for refueling, rediscovering, and reengaging their true selves. Learning to use humour as an instrument of communication creates an atmosphere of compassion, caring, and productivity.

    Guest Speaker: Kate Davis

    Kate Davis has the unique ability to find humour in any situation and offers creative solutions to defuse frustrations in both the workplace and at home. A hit comedian, who has opened for the likes of Seth Meyers, Bill Clinton, and Barbara Walters, Davis’ generous insight and hilarious presence is a powerful combination that helps organizations empower their staff with effective tools for managing stress and sustaining motivation.

    Theatrically trained in England, Davis went from a successful run on the Canadian stage to the many stages of motherhood, before she found her passion for comedy. Now she is a 12-time Canadian Comedy Awards nominee, including a nomination for the prestigious Phil Hartman Award, and the star of her own hour-long comedy special on CTV and the Comedy Network. In addition, Davis has appeared on Breakfast Television, Star TV, Toronto 1, Prime, WTN, TVO, and CBC Radio’s The Debaters. She also stars, writes, and produces the hit web series “Best Before”, which won at the Canadian Comedy Awards, and was chosen for “Standup and Pitch” at the Just For Laughs Comedy Pro.
