Presentation Description

How do we move away from an individually driven performance culture and towards a collaborative growth mindset? Successful organizations aren’t driven by individual goals, but shared purpose and the safety to sometimes fail.


Join Robyn Arville, Chief People Officer at The National Resource Defense Council (NRDC), to reflect on the opportunity that you have to build the environments that foster growth – valuing innovation, reflection, iteration, and trust. How can HR and people leaders help steward this change in their organizations?

Three Takeaways:

  1. How to create sustained generative leadership practices at every level

  2. How to cultivate an employee experience of engagement, trust, ownership and courage

  3. What a growth culture looks like - key components to build one
