MASTERCLASS: DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Clients are setting the agenda and demanding that firms take diversity seriously. Winning new clients is just one reason why diversity is making its way into the boardroom.
In this workshop, we will explore how embracing diversity, and in particular diverse thinking, can help all firms flourish.
We will highlight why D&I is no longer a nice-to-have for professional services firms. It is key to staying ahead of the pack.
Join us to find out:
To explore what diversity is and how inclusion and belonging differ
The basics that need to exist in a firm to foster diverse thinking
The statistics you need to know to best enhance diversity, inclusion & belonging
How to creating a culture of belonging across the board
MASTERCLASS: BUILDING PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY IN YOUR TEAM
In the words of Amy Edmondson, psychological safety is where there is an absence of interpersonal fear.. It is where people are able to speak up.
In this workshop we think about what psychological safety is, what the signs are that it might be present - or absent - and how to build a space where teams can flourish.
We will draw on coaching tools and techniques to work with your team:
To understand and identify where challenges to psychology might arise
To think about psychological safety in the context of feedback
To think about what being vulnerable at work means
MASTERCLASS: WHAT'S THE COLOUR OF YOUR TEAM?
Central to much of our work is self-awareness. Increased self-awareness is understood to enable other soft skills, build emotional intelligence and is a key foundation for our work with individuals and teams.
In this workshop we give you an introduction into C-Me Colour Profiling. C-Me provides insights into behavioural preferences. People find it easier to relate to the idea of adapting behaviours than personality traits, which is one of the reasons this is our preferred tool.
In this sesion you and your team will:
Start to think about the blend of colours in your team
Think about what colour preferences mean for the way you interact as a team
Start to think about how you might flex your style
MASTERCLASS: DIVERSE THINKING
Cognitive diversity is an important ingredient for success in professional services firms. Diverse thinking helps us to challenge what ‘good’ looks like. By challenging the ‘way it’s always been’ and inviting differing perspectives we make our teams stronger.
In this workshop we provide an introduction into what diverse thinking is and explore the benefits. We also think about what might get in the way of leveraging difference in teams.
Join us to find out:
How you can embrace diverse thinking
Different techniques that you can use in a team to make sure that all voices and perspectives are heard
