Organizations are becoming spaces of cultural innovation where justice, equity, belonging and a deeper sense of human potential are being prioritized.
Processes and policies that protect and promote justice, equity, belonging and human potential are critical guardrails, but not sufficient in and of themselves.
It must be complemented with deep behavioral and mindset changes that only happen through deep personal and interpersonal work. Few leaders, facilitators and consultants in this space have the capacity to guide their teams, groups and orgs through this aspect of the work.
To become adept at this requires us to face our own ethnocentric biases, fear, and cynicism that arise when we engage historical, intense and complex intergroup dynamics. And, it requires us to discover a care, forgiveness, and compassion that informs our vision of who we can be together.
This training lays the ground work for leaders, facilitators, and consultants to develop a depth of courage, interpersonal sophistication, emotional stamina, and vision of who we can become that allows us to step into the fire of intergroup dynamics and transform them.
