Finding New Unity in Diversity: Behavior, Values and Leadership

Today is the day you create a more equitable and inclusive workplace through a better understanding of yourself and others.

In the last two years at work, we have seen massive shifts in the workplace, demographically and interpersonally. These changes are on a rapid curve for change between 2020 and 2025. CPAs and their clients can immediately use this framework to expand understanding between people coming from different perspectives and experiences. This learning can be used to increase resilience and aptitude for change, grow engagement at work, and allow for better relationships between people who work together. This live, expert-led class helps CPAs to become better leaders, managers, and allies for today’s workplace.

This course utilizes the work and research of Robert Kegan, Bob Anderson, Amanda Blake, Pamela Fuller, Bari Williams, Dan Siegel, Beatrice Chestnut, and many other organizational strategists and psychologists. This session offers a deep dive on how clarity on personal, departmental, and organizational values coupled with behavioral understanding helps create an organic communication pattern between people on a team and different teams in an organization. We’ll also go further on how the development of a personal style of leadership can help people at any seniority level connect with those they work with while also empathizing with the needs of others.
