Diversity and Inclusion Training

How to create a more inclusive and innovative workplace

Description
Every company has unwritten rules, and every employee has unintentional biases. Bringing these to light is a powerful step in creating a more inclusive and innovative workplace. This engaging Diversity and Inclusion Training course focuses on the fundamentals and value of an inclusive and diverse culture in alignment with your organization’s Diversity and Inclusion goals.  It also builds a business case for diversity along the way.

Because the program is customized to incorporate employee issues, concerns and hopes, it quickly breaks down skepticism and creates a vision of a diverse and inclusive workplace that taps into the talents of each employee.

Approach

  1. Perform individual assessments and interview key stakeholders
  2. Design the workshop based upon your organization’s Diversity and Inclusion goals
  3. Hold immediate one-to-one coaching if an individual raises issues that will not be addressed in the workshop
  4. Deliver the innovative and interactive Diversity and Inclusion training program using examples and case studies from your company and other leading global organizations
  5. Conduct individual follow-up, coaching and relevant videos for ongoing learning

The Next Generation Management Development courses have helped me communicate more effectively with my peers and teammates. By utilizing effective communication techniques such as clarifying and confirming, and asking open ended questions, I have been able to clarify and understand information in situations where I would have otherwise asked limited questions and made false assumptions.

Our company engaged LSA to do a specialized “train the trainer” program, and the consultant’s performance outdid our exceptionally high standards for such a program. Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals. Our facilitators continue to comment on the success of the program. Thanks also for the follow-up.
