Diversity and Inclusion - it's not what you think
Progressive and effective teams make diversity and inclusion a priority. What is diversity and inclusion and how does that impact your organization? Organizations, that make employee growth and development a priority, create an environment where team members thrive and business gets done. A diverse, well cared for and empowered workforce demonstrates social responsibility and business acumen. Inclusion puts the concept and practice of diversity into action by creating an environment of involvement, respect and connection—where ideas, backgrounds and perspectives are harnessed to create business value. Organizations need both diversity and inclusion to be successful. This module focuses on diversity & inclusion from a humanity perspective.
Your Professional and Personal Brands Matter!
Think of your professional brand as a way of defining how you want to be seen in your professional world. When you manage your brand as a part of your career strategy or a service delivery model, it gives you a distinct advantage. As professionals, we often get into a rhythm, a way of being, or delivering a service that's not as effective as it once was. This session will allow you to evaluate your professional image, serving as a reminder that first impressions set the tone for every interaction. Your brand communicates the essence of who you are in the workplace and reflects your professional reputation. Feeling confident in your appearance and abilities produces stellar results.
Leadership for Executives and Administrative staff
It has been said that one should choose their boss and not their job. It's clear that there's no single definition of leadership. What works for one leader may not work for another. It simply depends on the circumstances. But, there's one thing that most agree on:
- A true leader must be able to inspire the team.
- Every person in your organization is a potential leader and should be encouraged to be innovative.
- Each brings a unique set of experiences and skills to the table.
This module will encourage you to take an authentic look at who you are as a leader in your organization. Leadership that embraces a spirit of inclusion and that values a diverse set of ideals produces dynamic results.
