Author Biography

Rosie Ward is a sparkly humanitarian, an energetic, passionate, compassionate leader, consultant, coach, and author who focuses on transformation from the inside out. Her mission started nearly 20 years ago when she experienced firsthand the ill effects of working in a toxic work environment and found her wellbeing eroding. Since then, she has worked tirelessly to find a solution, so this experience is no longer the norm. She is sought-after to help rehumanize workplaces so that people are freed, fueled and inspired to bring their best selves to work – and home – each day.

Rosie serves as CEO and co-founder of Salveo Partners, LLC, a consulting and professional development company focused on equipping organizations to find success while putting people back at the forefront of their business. Her first book, How to Build a Thriving Culture at Work: Featuring the 7 Points of Transformation, has served as a blueprint for hundreds of organizations to break past old, outdated paradigms and re-humanize their workplace.

Rosie is a lifelong learner; in addition to having a Ph.D. and numerous certifications, Rosie was trained by Dr. Brené Brown as a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator. She is known for challenging and inspiring people to think differently about what it takes to become the best version of themselves and for organizations to foster their growth and development. Rosie launched her podcast, "Show Up as a Leader" in October 2020. She currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband and son.

Rehumanizing the Workplace: Future-Proofing Your Organization While Restoring Hope, Well-Being, and Performance, by Rosie Ward and Jon Robison, takes a powerful, practical, and compassionate look at how to fortify your business or organization while putting people first. This inspiring guide could save your organization and can help bring humanity back to the workforce. The authors examine what can happen when people are more important than profit. Maybe you already have a fulfilling job where you love getting up in the morning to start a new day doing it. But there are millions of people who feel unappreciated, uninspired and misused. They aren't encouraged to contribute ideas, be their authentic self, or make a difference, and this kind of environment is stifling and in the end, less productive.

I love how these authors explain that a rewarding job isn't just a pipe dream and that it's possible for businesses, organizations, and employers to turn things around. They just need a new way of doing things, and this book shows them how. No doubt we live in an everchanging world today, with unpredictable economies and finances. This can put a wedge between upper management and those who work in it because they feel they have no choice but to hang on to every resource. This produces an environment that operates more on a mechanical level, rather than human. But that's about to change, according to Ward and Robison, by focusing on culture at the local team level. This guide serves as a blueprint for change if you like the idea of a people-centered workplace. Instead of operating out of fear and conservation, you can operate out of concern and purpose. This is what fosters productivity and wellbeing, and it builds on the idea of self-management and compassionate capitalism. There are five tenets discussed in their book, and they are practical. If your organization or business is in need of transformation, Rehumanizing the Workplace: Future-Proofing Your Organization While Restoring Hope, Well-Being, and Performance by Rosie Ward and Jon Robison is a must-read.
