Building a Diversity and Inclusion Culture Strategy

Reaping the benefits of diversity and inclusion is more than numbers, more than academic theories and more than “diversity potlucks. Diversity and Inclusion has to be integrated into every aspect of your business strategy.

Without the diversity in people, there is no diversity. Without meaningful interaction between people who learn from their differences and similarities there is no real diversity. You just have people who are different working together and staying in silos.

Every one of our consulting processes, learning experiences, and coaching programs result in people interacting and developing relationships in new ways.

No matter how long people are at work , whether it’s two hours, four hours, 8 hours etc. they do their best when they feel part of something greater than themselves and feel part of a community where they are valued

If you want a diversity and inclusion culture that is based on people at every level who love to do their best work, and who pass that love onto all of your customers, vendors and clients, contact us now.

Cultural intelligence

Cultural intelligence is the ability to develop relationships and work effectively with people from any other culture whether you know anything about them or not. That ability is not innate but is a learnable skill.

Whether that cultural group is different in ethnicity, geography, race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, work function, etc. successful people and organizations need to be able to be curious, observant, think strategically and develop relationships quickly in order to be successful. Knowing about one or two specific cultures is not enough and everyone is more than just one cultural dimension.

We help you and your organization develop a culturally intelligent mindset, and practice behaviors to work successfully with any body, anywhere.

Recent studies across the globe prove that breakthrough innovation is predicated on your ability to leverage diversity, recognize and optimize employee genius, and develop a culturally intelligent workplace.

3D Dialogues

Recent studies on diversity and innovation have shown that one of the biggest obstacles to leveraging diversity for breakthrough innovation is people now knowing each other well, biases and assumptions people have about each other, and lack of diversity at senior levels.

Simma Lieberman, along with Joel Brown have developed the 3D Dialogue Process. They have successfully brought groups and individuals together who are different and used the 3D Dialogue process to help them become comfortable with uncomfortable issues, and dramatically improve the way people communicate with each other across any difference.

Examples: Creating cooperation between union or hourly employees and management, cross-cultural collaboration and conflict resolution, law-enforcement and community members, dialogues across work functions, Communicating cross genders, Cross Generational dialogues.
