Loren Shuster, LEGO Group: Children as role models, wisdom in leadership, and purpose in practice

Join Nick as he sits down with Loren Shuster, Chief People Officer of one of the most loved and iconic brands in the world, the LEGO Group. Together they delve into the fascinating history and unique culture of the organization, lifting the lid on how their progressive approach extends to employee experience design.

Loren shares insights into the LEGO Group’s commitment to equity and fairness, and how that shapes not just their surface level of rewards and benefits, but the fundamentals of workplace wellbeing: leaders as role models, connecting people with purpose, and cultivating psychological safety.

Throughout the conversation, they discuss the importance of self-awareness and social awareness in effective leadership, as well as the pivotal role of organizational culture in fostering personal growth. They discuss the need for a shift towards adult-to-adult relationships between employers and employees in order to realize a future where mental health is openly embraced and supported in the workplace.
