MicroInequities: Managing Unconscious Bias™
Our flagship product, MicroInequities: Managing Unconscious Bias™ focuses on the ways to manage unconscious bias in the workplace. It uncovers the DNA of inclusion and ways to generate acceptance of behavior change that alters employee performance.
A central thread in the fabric of great leadership is the ability to inspire the performance of others across all diversity dimensions. This is most effectively accomplished through the micromessages we send. These MicroMessages, often MicroInequities, are the sole manifestation of Unconscious Bias.
The program focuses on the hidden barriers to performance. These are the subtle, usually unconscious, MicroMessages we all send that can devalue, discourage and ultimately impair performance at all levels of an organization.
It reaches beyond merely identifying what MicroInequties are and how they occur in the workplace. This highly interactive seminar has participants feeling, first-hand, the impact MicroInequities have on them during the session. It takes participants beyond an intellectual understanding of unconscious bias. Their experience rises to the level of creating genuine buy-in and understanding of the impact subtle messages have on altering the performance of others.
Our program reveals the effects of MicroMessages on performance and delivers critical concepts and skills that carry over instantly when participants return to the workplace.

High Impact Virtual Meetings
This program addresses the challenge and cause for the disparity of participation levels between co-located and remote meeting participants. It is universally acknowledged that participants who are physically together in a meeting room participate at a higher level than those who participate virtually.
This challenge of virtual team communication is the direct result of the absence of MicroMessages that cue interaction for those without visual access to the other meeting participants. This program provides the tools and skills to maximize engagement.

The Evolved Leader
If you can’t reach outside your comfort zone and not just about race or gender but any difference that prevents an organization from living up to its full potential, you can’t be an effective leader. The Evolved Leader program provides insight and direction on how to send leadership messages that unlock the performance of all those within a leader’s sphere of influence.
- Individual Coaching
This program identifies the link between inclusion and the ways it fosters innovation.
The experience focuses on the role inclusion plays to enable innovative behaviors and outcomes within work teams.
The goal is to recognize that there is a higher level of potential that reaches beyond fundamental workplace inclusion. Even when inclusion goals are optimized, there are unique ways to tap into the thinking process of each team member to achieve a higher level of innovation.

The conventional model of mentoring has senior executives imparting their wisdom onto the less experienced employee in order to develop their understanding of the ways to navigate and succeed. Reverse mentoring reverses this traditional model having the senior executive become the protégé and junior employee, the mentor.
The junior employee is selected as the mentor based on their greater knowledge of what it is like to work within the organization as a women or under-represented ethnic or other group employee. In this unique model, each participant becomes one half of a dynamic partnership allowing the senior executive to expand his or her awareness of the unique challenges faced by various employee groups – something they are rarely exposed to at their level.
This program spans a twelve-month period and typically involves multiple pairs of mentoring teams.
