The Courage To Go Together: Strategies for Practical Team Cohesion
Do you have a culture where leaders intentionally adopt beliefs and systems that inspire and empower your people to do their best work, so your organization can deliver exceptional results consistently? In his highly-inspiring flagship keynote, Shola will introduce the transformative concept of Ubuntu (pronounced, "oo-BOON-too") which translates to "I am, because we are." The Ubuntu philosophy, along with three powerful questions, will provide the audience with actionable strategies to transform their work culture, amplify team civility, and inspire themselves and others to consistently bring their best to their work.
Over a decade ago, Shola Richards was drowning in the despondency of yet another workday. His success as the top regional performer in a large healthcare organization had been numbed by a culture of incessant workplace bullying. And, he’d recently made the situation worse by filing a formal complaint. In short, he was collateral damage in a company without the process or intention to address his experience.
Exhausted from the drama, with an unrecognizable version of himself at the wheel, he intentionally swerved off the interstate in an attempt to take his own life. But in that half-second, his reflexes responded, and he yanked the wheel away from disaster. As he clipped the guardrail on I 405, something changed…he uncovered a power within himself...
...a burning desire to reverse a trend that happens daily to 65M people in the United States alone. This catalyst has since become the Go Together Movement - a transformational roadmap of mindset, behaviors, and tools that transform workplace cultures and drive results.
Shola helps organizations build compassion, competence, and accountability in the workplace. As a result, sustainable and joyful peak productivity, engagement, and satisfaction become the new norm.
His keynotes and bestselling books, Making Work Work, and Go Together, are creating transformation within organizations and leaders, who are dealing with crisis levels of mental health and looking for new and deeply human ways to create more workplace cohesion.
