The challenges that face our society and the world impact relationships at work and take a toll on organizational culture. With the lack of guidance, it is an inevitable and expected outcome that external pressures permeate into internal organizational dynamics. Most leaders do not have the training or the capacity to navigate the growing number of sensitive issues that are popping up in every organization. In many cases, employees are not aware of how seemingly harmless comments can lead to major conflicts and stress. Today, social justice movements and activists around the world are standing up for accountability and action. More than ever before, ignorance is no longer a valid excuse for behaviors that create a toxic workplace.
Conscious Equity 2.0 is a leadership roadmap to support value-based strategic decisions. CE 2.0 will also help organizations identify what additional skills and tools employees need to thrive. Through a series of group discussions, self-reflections, team-based leadership challenges, and experiential learning exercises, leaders will begin to understand how to create a culture that values equity for all.
At the end of this learning lab, participants will be able to explore both unconscious and conscious bias and its role in communication, decision-making, and culture. Trainees will practice and analyze cultural competence and emotional intelligence in a range of relevant scenarios. From their learning, participants will examine a systems-based approach to decision making and organizational culture-building habits. Finally, leaders will be able to identify strategies for negotiating and reconciling ideological differences on external events.
