In this episode of The Forum Podcast, Dr. Kenneth Nowack (Envisia Learning, Inc.) dives into new research on how to measure and change a key aspect of an effective company and team culture: interpersonal trust and psychological safety.
Dr. Nowack presents the latest neuroscience research around interpersonal trust and its relationship to the hormone oxytocin that provides insight about the biological survival roots of unconscious bias and in-group bias. Finally, Dr. Nowack will explore the link between high-trust teams with important employee outcomes such as retention, engagement, reduced job burnout, and well-being.

Greetings beloved members of the Augsburg community,
First, I want to thank you for your patience in this time, for your commitment to learning, and for your support of Augsburg Day Student Government. We are in an unprecedented time of change, and the role that you, the student body, play in helping Augsburg navigate these challenges is crucial.
I know that this week comes with a ramp up in work as we approach finals, so I wanted to be sure to present the University’s official responses to the resolutions that the current student government leadership has passed to date. The document attached was compiled by members of Augsburg’s leadership and reviewed by President Pribbenow before sending to you. It documents the work Augsburg has done to date on the topics highlighted in the ASDG resolutions.
We recognize — and I know you do as well — that there is still work to do, so let me close by saying that we look forward to ongoing partnership and communication between the Student body, the Augsburg Day Student Government, and University Administrators as we move forward in the final weeks of this semester, through the summer, and into the upcoming school year.
Please keep yourselves healthy and safe — and finish this semester strong!
The Executive Board
