  • Three keys to inspirational leadership
    The art of leading and managing is changing quickly, and we are in the midst of a workplace transformation not seen since the Industrial Revolution. For this section, we will be joined by Craig Forman, Founder of CultureC Consulting and former Lead People Scientist at Culture Amp, who will share what he sees as the three most important aspects of building inspirational leadership.
    For well over a decade Craig’s work has been driven by a singular professional purpose: to help the world work better by improving the places we work. Working for and learning from some of the most highly successful and human-focused organizations to help companies build healthy, effective workplace cultures.

    Craig spent six of these years as the Lead People Scientist at Culture Amp where he helped to build one of the most influential and impactful organizations in the people and culture space. This work centered around helping organizations collect, understand and take action on employee data, both reliably and at scale. Additionally, he led Experience Design for the Culture First Global conference for over four years and is also a respected community builder, having designed and launched Culture Amp’s award-winning Culture First global community, now over 100 chapters world-wide.
