Key notes and Training. These topics are designed to open the door to dialogue and drive transformational performance and growth in your organization. They can range in time from 1-6 hours, and each segment is interactive, engaging, relevant, high-energy and multi-medium. All sessions will provide education, skills and knowledge. Additionally, participants will leave each session with tools and techniques that are relevant, realistic and immediately useable. The Series begins with foundational topics and branches out specifically to more provocative topics.
Objective: To establish an introduction and foundation to diversity and inclusion. It is also to provide a consistent definition and understanding of diversity and inclusion and how they intersect the workplace, workforce and marketplace.
Objective: To discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion as a critical business imperative to the organization. The latest research and the correlation to the success of your business will be the focus. This is a great session for senior leaders as well as anyone that interfaces with sales / marketing / customers.
Objective: In this session we define bias and belonging and investigate how they intersect the workforce, workplace and marketplace. Having bias does not make me a bad person, just human. At the core of the workshop we help develop an understanding that we are always seeing only some of the picture in any situation. We make-up the rest, we call that projection. And this becomes an impediment to developing belonging.
Objective: Inclusion drives engagement. But how do we create a more inclusive environment where your workforce can show up, do their best work and exceed your organizational objectives? What will the workforce of the future look like? Techniques to drive a culture of success in changing times will be shared.
Objective: To learn about others from various perspectives in their backgrounds. Secondly, to take this learning to the workplace to address tensions through the lens of developing a culture of belonging. Social belonging, empathy and otherness is the foundation for this cultural dialogue. Great for in-tact team building.
Objective: As we look at the current state of women in the workplace we see that society has certainly made some strides over the years, but women still have a long way to go. This session inspires women with the seven life tools to change their world! Highly motivational.
Objective: Sharing new leadership competencies required to increase levels of engagement is the focus of this workshop. Being a people leader requires skill. The techniques in this workshop, along with practice in the workshop, will allow leaders to manage and lead in a new and global world.
Objective: To explore the behaviors that create inclusion and demonstrate how quickly those behaviors can become exclusive. Collaboration as a new leadership competency emerges and helps identify micro-affirmations and acts of inclusion for higher levels of productivity.
Objective: To gain insight into the multiple generations in today’s workplace, workforce and marketplace. And to share tips on how to work together effectively.
Objective: Learn what research says about the generations in the workplace and what it will take to manage individuals from each of the generations. Using case studies, managers and supervisors will practice generational coaching tools.
Objective: To define conscious and unconscious bias and look at how these biases play out in our interactions in the workforce, workplace and with our clients. We will look at productivity barriers in talent review, team interaction, hiring, succession planning and development.
Objective: To explore the small negative gestures, tones and snubs that we demonstrate, unknowingly, toward our colleagues and clients, causing people to shut down, break down and pull back. This will be juxtaposed against micro affirmations which help heal an organization's culture.
Objective: To discover different cultural norms and the values that distinguish cultures. This helps us navigate and understand cultural interactions that are often plagued by challenge.
Objective: To recognize our own attitudes toward difference, where they begin and how they can create barriers to inclusion, productivity and effectiveness in the life of an employee.
Objective: To explore trust roots, internal empowerment and the role confidence plays in supporting employee engagement and performance to drive increased productivity.
Objective: To look closely at our communication styles and how communication with our clients and team members break down and where the biggest collisions occur.
Objective: In this keynote, you will begin to understand the world we live in through the lens of diversity and inclusion. Building effective relationships is at the core of this foundational presentation. Techniques for developing relationships across the complexity of diversity will be revealed. This will play against the landscape of today's business as well as mainstream society.
Objective: Share the fundamentals of effective presentation skills. This session incorporates techniques for presenting along with common mistakes made. In-session practice is a part of this workshop.
Objective: To explore the role that gender and gender norms play in how we interact and how that inhibits productivity and leadership in the workplace.
Objective: To understand why successful women as leaders in the workplace are a business imperative. Bias and barriers against women are explored as well as what both genders can do to leverage success across the gender divide.
Objective: To define masculine and feminine characteristics and how our bias of these characteristics can set either gender up for failure or success. Gender messaging from a young age is used as a backdrop for the messages we receive and put in play in the workplace. Tools on moving forward to drive an environment where women and men can be successful are developed.
Objective: To highlight many of the little-known U.S. facts, tips and etiquette regarding interacting with persons with disabilities in the workforce and workplace. This course prepares the participant for interacting and working with an increasing number of people with disabilities in the workplace.
Objective: To showcase the business importance of innovation and creativity for the future. Based on DeBono's Six Hat Theory, this simulation is a provocative, in-session project to show the use of participants' creativity and innovation.
Objective: Understand personal responsibility and accountability, and how they are vital to successfully dealing with situations requiring high performance.
Objective: This session offers advice to introverts for functioning in an extrovert-dominated culture, and gives the business case for why introverts and extroverts need to work together for high performance.
