Ensuring Every Voice is Heard and Valued in Your Workplace with Sara Dean

  1. Ensuring Every Voice is Heard and Valued in Your Workplace with Sara Dean Kristen Harcourt 40:19

What steps can you take to ensure every voice is heard and valued in your workplace? Imagine walking into a room and knowing that no matter who you are, your ideas matter, your experiences are recognized, and your contributions are celebrated.

In this episode of the Inspirational Leadership podcast, I speak with Sara Dean about the importance of creating environments where every voice is heard and everyone feels valued. Sara is a Seattle-based keynote speaker, executive coach, business consultant, and trainer for leaders and teams. She supports women in leadership who want to become more courageous in their thoughts, actions, and conversations. From women’s empowerment events to corporate training series to long-term resiliency and creating custom talent development curriculum, Sara teaches folks how to identify and own their greatest strengths in order to show up and shine in the areas they most want to grow and evolve.

Listen in to learn how to create space as a leader for people to process, practice, and engage with new skills and not just deliver volumes of information. You will also learn about the common struggle with confidence across all genders and the importance of leaders recognizing and addressing this issue.

Key Takeaways:

  • The importance of helping women take up space and use their voices in powerful ways.
  • How to effectively lead, cultivate, and empower other leaders by creating space for people to process, practice, and engage with new skills.
  • The importance of providing resources and engaging in dialogues to foster learning and growth within organizations.
  • The value of regular, open dialogues and personal sharing to build trust and connection at the workplace.

Standout Quotes:

  • “It’s been really cool to see men step into allyship and advocacy for women and trying to unravel some of the ways that they’ve been socialized can be just as harmful as the way that women are socialized.”– Sara [05:04]
  • “If we aren’t creating space for people to process the information or to practice using new skills, we’re missing a huge aspect of leadership that allows us to cultivate and empower other leaders.”– Sara [13:31]
  • “If you give people the opportunity to share, demonstrate a little bit of vulnerability, and then connect around that, that experience makes them feel seen, heard, held, and valued in the moment, and then they also want more.”– Sara [17:02]
