SUMMARY: Resources, including a guide, videos, and slides to help you facilitate an effective team discussion about addressing and improving clear leadership and expectations in your workplace. The intended outcome is to create a practical and cost-effective action plan that works for your team.

Clear Leadership & Expectations are present in an environment in which leadership is effective and there is support that helps employees know what they need to do, how their work contributes to the organization, and whether there are impending changes.

Engaging your entire team in reviewing the factors that impact psychological health and safety in your workplace is the approach recommended by the National Standard of Canada on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. By doing this, you not only build awareness of the responsibility of each employee to contribute to a positive workplace culture, you also get their involvement in developing and being part of the solution.
