Can you recall a time in your life where you felt you truly belonged?

Belonging creates an environment where people feel welcomed, respected, valued, heard and protected. Further, belonging unlocks human potential and creates teams where direct reports can show up as their authentic selves. 

In today's work environment leaders are challenged to consider multi-generational differences in teams and consider thoughtful methods to drive connection, collaboration, and performance.

The stats are mind blowing – professionals who experience belonging have greater personal and professional well being than their peers including – a 56% increase in job performance, a 50% reduction in turnover risk, 2X more employee raises, and 18X more employee promotions (Deloitte). This engaging program will empower people managers & leaders to take everyday, practical steps that build workplace belonging.

Recruiting early talent is the key to your company’s success. With the most racially diverse generation in history entering the workforce, GenZ, employers & higher ed institutions must assess relevant methods to develop & retain diverse early talent. Skills, jobs & workplace dynamics have been significantly impacted by a global pandemic, new dynamics of work, and social injustices, and companies must adapt to the “future of work.”

This period in one’s career is usually met with uncertainty, anxiousness, and timidity as early career professionals seek to find their way in the workplace.

In today’s workplace & marketplace environment, filled with significant change, it can be even more difficult to chart a path that helps build the blocks to career advancement and fulfillment. This program will empower early career professionals with what they need to start their careers strong!
