Studies demonstrate that roughly 40 percent of employees quit their jobs because of poor management -- not the pay or even the work itself. Therefore, when organizations are seeking to improve retention numbers it is imperative that the lion-share of the energy is placed squarely on improving managers skills and abilities. This course is intended to teach all levels of management the value of diversity, and how to take actionable steps to reduce costly turnover. The course highlights ten tangible strategic steps managers can take to ensure members of their team feel valued and appreciated. Managers who complete this course are more likely to improve retention of their diverse talent over time.
We understand that most managers are elevated to their positions largely due to their technical strengths and not necessarily because of their ability to lead teams -- particularly diverse teams. This often leads to high turnover, and puts the managers at odds with organizational objectives. This service provides one-on-one coaching to managers of all levels to help them attract diverse talent and foster inclusive work environments. The coaching program begins with a thorough evaluation of the manager's strengths, weaknesses, and areas of concern, then is followed-up with a series of co-curated sessions that will enhance their comfortability and ability to lead effectively.
We will author or review internal or public communications statements in recognition of important events and milestones; or craft mission and vision statements that are aligned with DEI goals.
