Volatility has quickly become the new normal. We are all being asked to innovate more quickly and creatively than ever before in order to stay relevant and connected in an ever changing environment. It’s no surprise this uncertainty brings up various levels of fear, which we often ignore or avoid altogether which doesn't help us get where we want. Instead, how might we work with fear in order to manage change with resilience? How might we hone our agility, spontaneity and storytelling skills in relationship with fear? We do it by tapping in to our ability to play. Join Guryan Tighe, Founder and Fear Technician at Fourage, Shannon Hughes, Principle Experiential Trainer at Enlivened Studios along with facilitator Craig Forman, Lead People Scientist from Culture Amp, for an interactive gathering that explores change management in today’s business through the combined impact of Fear + Play.

My Mission: To help the world work better by improving the places we work.
I am obsessed with how humans work, both individually and together in groups.
Given the percentage of our lives that is spent at work, I believe that the more connected to and inspired by our work and workplace we can be, the better we are as humans, and thus the more successful our organizations will be.
I work every day to improve the state of our workplaces by supporting organizations to leverage data in making more human focused decisions, that results in more engaged people and more successful organizations.
I am also highly focused on creating change one person at a time through building Culture Amp's Culture First community. Our goal is to build the worlds largest community of people, both online and offline, who believe that a better world of work is possible and are willing to take action to make this a reality.
If you want to step up as a Culture Activist and join me in this mission, follow me here on LinkedIn and let’s start a conversation.
