GET READY TO LEAD
THE MOST DIVERSE WORKFORCE IN THE
HISTORY OF THE WORLD!


Manage property; LEAD people.  Management is about policies and procedures, but leadership is about motivation, inspiration and vision.  Anyone can write a policy statement.  Very few can effectively motivate and authenthically connect people across their differences.  We custom design leadership strategies and create inclusive environments that leverage the abilities of your entire team.  This allows you to inclusively engage people across their differences.


The Rules Have Changed. The ‘Ole School, traditional leadership model is inadequate for the 21st century:

  • Demographics have changed
  • The World is Flat
  • Workforce population has shrunk
  • Hierarchical (vertical) corporate structures are becoming ineffective
  • Flat (horizontal) corporate structures require RELATIONSHIP BUILDING ACROSS CULTURES
  • People of Color (non-whites) are 1/3 of the U.S. workforce
  • Women are 1/2 of the U.S. workforce
  • Globalization is a fact of life
  • White Males will only be 17% of the new global workforce entrants
  • Gen X’ers do NOT want to be micro-managed
  • Gen Y’ers don’t respond to the “Command & Control” model.  They must be “Coached & Inspired”

We’ve been helping organizations prepare for these challenges for 40 years! ARE YOU READY?
