Bonus Module: How to Have Difficult Conversations About Race
Conversations about race are difficult and challenging because they are deeply emotional and trigger strongly held beliefs about identity and fairness.
There is great risk in failing to have these conversations in a respectful way because they can have profound consequences throughout the workplace, leading to issues with morale, group cohesion, and, in serious cases, employee retention.
Our unique approach blends high-level negotiation and conflict resolution techniques with an understanding of civil rights and was featured in CNBC, Forbes, and USA Today within a 2-week span. We’re including access to this critical three-hour module with a live question and answer session at no additional cost to you.
