Leadership and Diversity

  Our world is increasingly diverse and complex.  Successful professionals have the awareness, knowledge, and skills to effectively interact with those from various backgrounds. This series offers the opportunity to increase self-awareness in order to become more aware of others.

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

Discussions Across Difference

In this workshop we show up fully! In a structured environment, we focus on the individual and position ourselves as whole people who come from a myriad of backgrounds and experiences. This is a discovery workshop in which we answer important questions like: Who am I? How has that influenced my experiences? After answering these questions, we are able to discover more about others. This workshop allows for deeper conversations about ourselves, while discovering more about our colleagues.

Session Time: 75-90 Minutes

Creating an Inclusive Workplace

Following the “Discussions Across Difference” workshop, this workshop is an even deeper dive into critical conversations about diversity. President John F. Kennedy reminds us that “If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.” This workshop is for teams that wish to improve their facilitation, inter-cultural communication, or conflict resolution skills amongst diverse groups.

Session Time: 75-90 Minutes

Leading Across Generations

There are currently four generations in the workplace: Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials,  and “Founders”. Each generation is defined by different events, political environment, cultural norms, and even music. The purpose of this session is for leaders to learn more the expectations and needs of team members of each generation. Here leaders learn to recognize the uniqueness of each generation and communicate respect for each generations contributions while bridging those differences on the team.
