    At Instar Performance, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion grow from behaviors and cultural norms that support emotionally intelligent and culturally aware leadership. We approach our work through a relational aspect - as opposed to a transactional one - which focuses on authenticity, open dialogue, and trust. We provide our clients with the experience of being supported while nurturing their self-awareness and stretching their expectations for themselves. We have global experience: coaching leaders and organizations around the world to drive engagement, equity, and top-tier business results.

    We help transform leaders into accountable champions whose contagious enthusiasm for diversity, equity and inclusion transforms company culture. Our programs focus on developing a shared understanding and common language around behavioral patterns related to bias, culture, and leadership. Clients become aware of organizational norms, how they often benefit dominant/in-group members and marginalize non-dominant/out-group members, and how each of us can participate in building an equitable & inclusive organizational culture that invites and maintains a diverse workforce. 

      Learning Objectives: Learn, Discuss, Examine, & Develop

      During this session participants will:

      • Learn a shared language for discussing diversity, equity and inclusion.
      • Model parameters for effective communication strategies about DEI, and especially race.
      • Promote skilled change management around the three components that must transform in concert to create truly inclusive and equitable workplaces:
        • Individual contributor mindset: Examine how the mind works, how our beliefs are formed, and how our beliefs control the way we perceive the world. Examine how we can be intentional about creating a new filter system for viewing our workplace and community.
        • Leadership effectiveness in people influencing strategies and relationship building, including influential one-on-one communication strategies for leaders.
        • Cultural alignment around vision, strategy and values to effectively navigate strategic DEI initiatives.
      • Promote critical evaluation and systems thinking of the current organizational commitment to DEI, with the goal of developing sustainable strategy for business results including retention, engagement, competitive market advantage and unique value proposition.
