- Diversity, Equity and Allyship
Did you know that while most employees see themselves as allies, research shows relatively few are taking basic allyship actions? We want to do our part to change that because we know when we empower you with the right tools and strategies there is nothing this team can’t accomplish.
Even in organizations with fully implemented Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs (DEI), research shows that employees with traditionally marginalized identities are not getting the allyship they deserve. Research shows employees want to be allies, but few are stepping up. The Allyship at Work training program closes the gap between the intention to be Diverse and Equitable, and the action it takes to be Inclusive.
- Generous Leader: The Return on Investing in Others
How corporate leaders can create workplaces where wins are celebrated, employees are invested in success, and colleagues can look to the leader as an example. This program will help participants understand how generosity toward others at work contributes to the a culture of inclusion, belonging and pride.Organizations are collections of teams and teams are groups of talented people working together on a set of goals for a deliberate purpose. Each individual and team is measured on success of achieving the goals; winning. What if winning meant everyone contributed, not only to the outcome but each other? What if we rewarded, encouraged and enabled more connection and support between colleagues and associated? It would not only make work more fun, it will improve the bottom line.

- Your Team Can Do Better
Bringing together everyone’s personalities and preferences to form a cohesive, productive team takes work, but the payoff can be huge—for individuals, the team, and the organization. To gain this advantage, teams must:
•Trust One Another — When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, they are able to build vulnerability-based trust.
•Engage in Conflict Around Ideas — When there is trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.
•Commit to Decisions — When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they will be more likely to commit to decisions.
•Hold One Another Accountable — When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
•Focus on Achieving Collective Results — The ultimate goal of building greater trust, conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing:the achievement of results.
