  • Building an inclusive culture takes time but is extremely worth it to attract, retain and develop employees and achieve ambitious goals, learn and innovate.

  • How did the pandemic and lockdowns affect the employees at your company?
  • How do you define psychological safety?
  • What are some of the key elements of psychological safety?
  • How does inclusiveness look like at your company?
  • What are specific tools that managers can use to encourage inclusiveness?
  • What are three common biases that can be addressed? 
  • How do you encourage and invite quieter team members to contribute to the discussion?
  • How important is a feedback culture?
  • How does the feedback cultural look like at Storebrand?
  • What advice would you give to a manager as to how to give feedback to an oversensitive person?
  • What does the hybrid model look like at Storebrand?
  • How do you personally recover from  setbacks and fine resilience?
  • What advice would you give to young professionals and new leaders?
