Our engagement surveys tell us that our employees want more developmental opportunities. Our exit surveys tell us that the talent we have invested in has found better opportunities elsewhere. Yet, we have these talent development programs to offer and so many great initiatives to work through! So, we draw from the same well of go-to people. In this chat, learn how to access the multiple wells of talent you already have.

Inclusion & Diversity training often fails to deliver the anticipated results because it does not address two big challenges:

The first challenge facing most D&I training is the word “training”. Training programs generally provide information, teach process, view relationships between people as transactional, and are largely about compliance. Training may imply that there is a panacea. Inter-relational topics like inclusion and diversity do not always work well in “training”. Whereas training may be designed to provide the tools for interaction, it does not actually require the one thing that can almost guarantee its success: a changed mindset able to deliver authentic care. D&I initiatives require genuine interactions. They are the keystones to successful programs.

The second challenge to address is how we prepare people to engage in these initiatives. Program developers often assume that participants are ready and open to participate. But this is rarely true. No topic is more likely to trigger defensiveness than D&I. When conversations turn to race, no one wants to be perceived as racist. Fear can shut down conversations. How can we shift the mindset from arms-across-the-chest defensiveness to one of curious inquiry and active participation?

Lapin has been facilitating these types of conversations for three decades. Our experience in inclusion and diversity began with Nelson Mandela and his government in post-apartheid South Africa, expanded with law enforcement after the Rodney King incident, and continues to deepen and thrive with each new experience.

In this 60-minute webinar, David Lapin and Sunny Lee-Goodman share how to prepare for The Inclusion Experience, which develops and builds your capacity to have honest conversations about inclusion and diversity. The experience is for teams and organizations who recognize that doing nothing is not an option, who see that there is no time to wait. It all starts with preparing yourself—now.

Few things have been as disrupted over the past few months as “the workplace.” For some, the changes have been catastrophic, creating challenges never before considered. And it has raised some big questions. What does it mean to manage employee experience and culture when a majority of employees are distributed? How do you balance safety and wellbeing with engagement and collaboration? What new tools and approaches are required to navigate these new challenges successfully?

Joining us this month to share new research and help us make sense of these questions is Chris Havrilla, VP, HR Technology and Solution Provider Strategy for Deloitte Consulting. Chris works with business and HR leaders, and solution providers, on radically improving people strategy, technology, and leadership for organizations. She's a Human Resource Executive® and HR Technology Conference Top 100 HR Tech Influencer, with a unique blend of technical, HR practitioner, business and vendor experience.

The world is changing in ways that now require everyone to think and act like an entrepreneur. To do so, we must move beyond a common myth: that only a "select few" are cut out for entrepreneurial roles. Instead, by encouraging entrepreneurial behavior throughout our organizations and ecosystems, we will discover more engaging and effective ways of working, living, and learning in this rapidly changing environment.

Participants who attend this webcast will be able to:

  • Understand the new world of work and the need to be entrepreneurial whether you launch something new, work for an existing organization, or join the gig economy.
  • Redefine entrepreneurship as a mindset, a framework for thinking and acting that can empower us to be adaptable, flexible, and resourceful in the face of change.
  • Define the key constructs behind the entrepreneurial mindset and identify how entrepreneurs leverage adversity and persist through challenges, setbacks, and self-doubt.
  • Effectively nurture entrepreneurial talent and behavior in our organizations to drive engagement, innovation, and new value creation.

If we've learned anything over the past few months, it's that the only constant is change. Markets fluctuate, customer expectations adjust, and technological adoption and disruption can happen in a matter of weeks, rather than years.

For your organization to be successful and remain competitive in an ever-changing environment, it's important to have a solid change management strategy in place. In fact, research shows that projects with excellent change management are 6 times more likely to meet objectives than those with poor change management.

We invite you to join us for a webinar on 10 tips to create a people-focused change management strategy. You will hear:

  • why change management with a focus on people is important
  • existing challenges in facing or implementing a change
  • 10 tips to create a people-focused change management strategy
  • open Q&A with our expert

There are 5 distinct stages that all organizations will transition through on the path to a new normal. This session will journey through each stage using practical guidance from leading organizations and new research on workforce resilience. You will leave with employee experience priorities to emphasize, so your organization has a roadmap to bounce back stronger.

Knowing how people have adapted to the unplanned transition to remote work can help you develop change management and communications for a smoother return. The top priorities for workplace teams right now are physical distancing, safety, and remote work programs. Understanding how people think about each of those items helps teams communicate these changes comfortably and prepare the workplace accordingly.

  • Ask your people if they are actually willing to return to the workplace when things get back to normal.
  • Understand the most common concerns your employees might have while returning to the office. This will give you an idea of what you can do to help their concerns.
