The past two years have put enormous stress on organizational leaders. COVID-19, WFH, hybrid work, a war for talent, the great resignation/introspection, drifting relationships, and onboarding remote employees, to name a few. Keeping a remote workforce motivated and happy while creating a psychologically safe environment that fosters innovation, actualization, and advancement is an ongoing challenge.

In this session, Dr. Gautham Pallapa explores

  • Why an organizational culture must be rooted in empathy and psychological safety
  • How Lean, Agile, and DevOps methodologies enable us to become more human-centric and empathetic.
  • How to become an empathic leader

He then presents a practical framework that uses Lean, Agile, and DevOps methodologies to create and nurture an empathic organizational culture. Dr. Pallapa also provides actionable steps to embark on a cultural transformation.
