Creating Cultures of Belonging

Practicing inclusion means practicing the

behaviors that communicates "You Belong Here." 

Now more than ever we live, work, play and learn with people who look, think, and have different beliefs than we do.  Diversity is increasing with every generation and our ability to embrace and communicate effectively, across differences, is a skill, and can be learned.  People leaders are on the front line.  Yes, inclusion is everyone’s responsibility, but people leaders carry a greater weight. Research shows an employee’s direct supervisor, is the greatest contributor to an employee’s sense of belonging or exclusion.

Innerleadership

Curriculum Pre-requisite

The work of inclusion begins with you. Hence, Creating Cultures of Belonging (CCOB) begin with Innerleadership. Defined as the ability to observe your thoughts and act with agency, supported by your values and an inner knowing that you will be alright no matter what.

This course is designed to empower you and help equip you to deal with inner resistance, stress, and the anxiety practicing inclusion, managing bias and learning to be an anti-racist are prone to evoke. Resilience begins within. The design is collaborative, experiential, and skill based. It includes researched based assessments, practice, feedback and individual and group reflection. The learner-centric workshops engage the group before, during, and after the course.

Learning organizations exist when people engage in continuous learning. We all have a comfort zone, panic zone and a learning zone, which is located between the extremes of comfort and panic. Innerleadership equips participants with tools and strategies to stay in their learning zone.

Learning Goals

•Describe Innerleadership and its three Superpowers

•List the skills necessary to practice inclusion

•Identify your cultural context

•Practice using one simple question to practice curiosity and increase self-awareness

•Use mindfulness practices to pause and reflect

Managing Bias

Course Goals

​We all have biases.  It's just part of the human condition. Bias, both conscious and unconscious impacts our behavior and decision making with and without our permission. Managing Bias focuses on learning to recognize and address bias. It does not seek to convince participants that they are bias. Instead, participants experience their own bias.


Learning to manage biases that create exclusion is a skill anyone can learn. It does require the willingness to examine our perspectives and how they were shaped.  To make more of our unconscious, conscious. If you want a more inclusive organization, where people feel included and united around the achievement of shared business goals, where people feel valued and willing to expend their discretionary effort to achieve those goals, this course is for you. 

Objectives

  • Define bias and implicit bias

  • Experience your brain’s propensity for bias

  • Recognize the subtle messages of implicit bias

  • Practice surfacing bias

  • Identify ways to practice self-compassion and manage the guilt, shame and grief that surfaces while making unconscious bias conscious

  • Explore some ways implicit bias shows up in the workplace

  • Practice 5 strategies to interrupt bias

  • Create an action plan to increase your ability to recognize and address bias
