Bridging the Difference® from Aspiration to Action

DEI strategies can fail. Make yours a reality.

Inclusion is not an aspiration, it’s an action. And diversity will never thrive unless you get it right. Put the I before the D to create the E!

Take action to propel your DE&I strategies forward. Engage in validated assessments and learning that are grounded in scientific research.

Let’s get started.

Inclusive Leadership Assessment

Inclusive leadership behaviors unlock the power of diversity.

The idea of inclusion can sound risky to some. As if it’s a zero-sum game and they might lose. But the world has changed and it’s not going back. What’s risky now is not being inclusive.

Be an Inclusive Leader Workshop

People often mash-up “diversity” and “inclusion” as if they are the same thing. They’re not.

Verna Myers artfully says, “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.” When you’re recruiting for top talent, no one wants to attend a party when they sense they’ll be a wallflower – the good dancers won’t accept the invitation.

Put the I before the D to create the E.

Discover the everyday leadership actions that add up big for DE&I. Participate in an expertly facilitated workshop to understand how to navigate ingroup-outgroup differences. Learn how to take the critical actions that attain an optimal balance of inclusion and distinctiveness in your teams.

Bridging the Difference® Through Empathy Workshop

Empathy honors diversity and transcends differences.

Seminal research at Google shows empathy is the fuel that creates psychological safety. That safety is the #1 differentiator between so-so-teams and great teams. Empathy honors diversity and transcends differences, and it’s a necessary pre-requisite for good leadership and an inclusive culture.

Develop your abilities to act with inclusivity so that you foster resiliency, engagement, and higher accomplishment. Participate in action-learning, where you’ll apply new understandings about your team members’ values and their unconscious drivers, so you provide them with the intrinsic rewards that fuel performance.
