Past Webinars

Embracing a New Era of Distributed Collaboration

The nature of how we collaborate has been evolving in recent years, and the adoption of new technologies in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis has dramatically accelerated that evolution. While traditional means of collaborating in-person aren’t going away, the adoption of new technologies and processes that enable us to collaborate across time and distance have changed peoples’ behaviors and expectations for how they’ll collaborate in the future. Join Ryan Anderson from Herman Miller and Zach Holmquist from Hitched as they discuss how better to understand the current and future state of collaboration, and how the use of facilities will need to evolve to support these changes.

Ensuring Psychological Safety in the Workplace

Now more than ever, our teams need to be performing at their highest level. We do this by ensuring people feel safe to express themselves at work. Psychological safety is the #1 indicator of high performing teams. By definition, psychological safety is “being able to show and employ one’s self without fear of negative consequences of self-image, status, or career.” In this Catalyst Thought Leadership Webinar, you will be guided by Sr. Learning Strategist at Herman Miller and workplace Psychological Safety expert, Heather Esposito, M.Ed, PCC. Tune-in and discover the science behind psychological safety, how to create and foster it in your teams, identify ways you may be threatening it, and tips for practical application. If you’re looking to maximize team performance and help your organization do that same, you won’t want to miss this.

Fractured Trust & The New Employee Experience

As we turn our attention to our suddenly revised future of the workplace, we’re faced with a difficult reality – our foundational levels of trust at work have been rocked to the core. Along with the top-of-mind issues such as occupancy schedules, cleaning protocols, work point seat spacing, and cost optimization of real estate, it is equally imperative that we examine factors that affect our most basic levels of trust at work for the next six months, one year, even longer. We’ll focus this interactive discussion on three critical workplace trust questions that may influence the future of work, expectations for the employee experience, and the short- and long-term decisions that have organization’s wondering “should we, or shouldn’t we?”
