Presentation Details

The success of any business is deeply intertwined with the well-being of its employees. But the rising rates of loneliness and depression, coupled with a pervasive culture of fear in the workplace, have made it increasingly challenging for managers to cultivate a thriving organizational culture. Outdated managerial practices that suppress the natural relational aspects of our brains only exacerbate this problem. It's high time we recognize the critical importance of nurturing team well-being and prioritize it as a fundamental aspect of any successful business strategy. Failure to do so can pose a significant threat to both individuals and businesses alike.

Historically, the marketplace's values have strained those within it, necessitating a new approach. "The Loving Leader: A Praxis for Culture Transformation of the Marketplace" by Jasmine Bellamy suggests that love's power can counter late capitalism's damaging effects. It urges leaders to joyfully disrupt current systems, fostering "new wave" leadership and paving new paths forward.

In this narrative, Jasmine Bellamy, a marketplace leader and scholar, shares her journey of organizational culture transformation. Through her framework and mission to disrupt the status quo with love, she offers practical applications for meaningful change from within. Be inspired by her commitment to fostering enduring change in the marketplace.

During this session, you'll explore :

  1. How might leading with love serve as a praxis for marketplace culture transformation? What are task positive and social networks and what do they have to do with leadership?

  2. How can a both/and approach where people and business flourish create a “new wave” leadership that becomes a catalyst for marketplace culture transformation?
