Relational trust and psychological safety are the keys to high-performing teams in business and healthy relationships in general. The latest research from Google, Deloitte, and the HBR back up this belief. Everyone speaks. Not everyone is heard.

When people don’t use their natural leadership voice, here’s what happens:

– Meetings seem to go nowhere
– Time, money, and resources are wasted
– Teams are misaligned, ineffective or unhealthy
– Work environments become toxic and filled with drama and gossip
– People are in the wrong role or position
– Disagreements divide instead of uniting

FrankTalks is free and the public is invited. Franklin Tomorrow partnered with Vanderbilt University’s Office of Community, Neighborhood, and Government Relations to expand the frequency of FrankTalks in 2016 to a monthly program. It is held at various locations across the city, but always on the second Monday of the month. Thanks to the added support of Renasant Bank, FrankTalks continues to thrive in 2018.

Special thanks to Spark: Lipscomb’s Idea Center for hosting this Franklin Tomorrow event in June.
