Peter Melby
Boss or Babysitter?

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM






Session Description

Leaders shouldn’t have to babysit employees, so why do so many of us end up doing just that?  

In order to achieve a culture of depth and agility, organizations must align their needs with the individual needs of team members.  Organizations thrive when their associates feel comfortable speaking candidly to leadership about opportunities and issues, yet many companies do not foster psychologically safe cultures.  Directed autonomous cultures give teams space to drive results without constantly requesting approval, yet many leaders micromanage instead.  Peter Melby believes that the best company cultures are based on candor and that cultivating cultures of directed autonomy and psychological safety are the best way to improve bottom line results.  Peter will share stories and insights from his experience of escaping the Babysitter’s Club and building a self-driven, accountable team at one of Colorado’s Top Workplaces.  Participants will learn a simple methodology for connecting team members authentically and creating a unique people-first organization.
