Our work goes beyond traditional DEI and Leadership efforts and focuses on the core components of building authentic human connections. Authentic human connection helps people exchange positive energy, increase empathy for others and build a culture of trust. We work inside out, helping people increase their inner awareness (social, cultural, emotional, spiritual) and ways of knowing to support leadership vitality, organizational health and wellbeing, and systems change.
We help you develop Inclusive Leadership; Diverse & Collaborative Teams, and Equitable Organizational Cultures. Our emotionally and culturally informed approach to DEI and Leadership (Our Shared Humanity) is comprehensive and consists of four culturally responsive and interconnected components: Assessment, Education, Training, and Coaching.
Our assessments focus on the inner journey to expand our human capacity and capability to navigate the complex social and cultural challenges in the workplace and communities. Our assessments we provide leaders and teams windows into the experiences of others and mirrors to deepen self-awareness. Our powerful psychometrics provide actionable data and insight to support tangible and sustainable change.
Knowledge is an essential component of the growth process. The more we learn, the more we can create options for ourselves and others. Our approach to education emphasizes collective knowledge production. Vital to our learning process is the use of knowledge from different perspectives and cultural traditions. Leveraging the wisdom from diverse worldviews and lived experiences support equitable representation, processes and outcomes.
Training is an opportunity to identify and develop specific skills to support individual, team, and organizational success. Our training is customized to each client and is heavily influenced by the insights gained from our assessment tools, collective education, and the emotional and cultural intelligence competencies that support human connection. Whether it is leadership, planning facilitation, or communication, we develop your skillsets for internal and external transformation.
We help you bring it all together to achieve your personal and professional goals through coaching. Our coaching philosophy is culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and highly relational. We are collaborative and curious about who our clients are, what they want to achieve, and who they are becoming. Through coaching, we increase your ability to connect authentically, deepen collaboration, and build trust to reach your leadership and equity goals.
Leaders are being asked to create equitable and emotionally supportive workplace cultures. Are you prepared for the new challenges?
Our programs and services support leaders and executives in becoming emotionally and culturally agile, and how to achieve your goals and celebrate success.
Are you experiencing resistance to equity efforts or just need help? DEI does not have to be divisive, rather a powerful solution for teams.
We help teams increase workforce well-being, performance, vitality, and satisfaction. Happiness and joy are key elements of emotionally and culturally agile of teams.
Do you feel marginalized or left out at work? Do people in your organization work well together? Workplace culture is key to organizational vitality.
We seek to transforms individuals and organizations to become more inclusive, innovative, collaborative. Trust is essential to support an increasingly diverse workforce.
If you are entrusted with bringing about change, you likely possess the knowledge needed to advance the organization, and you might have a plan — but knowledge is not enough. You have to bring yourself to each interaction in a deeply authentic way. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. – Doug Conant
Dr. Carter has a tremendous sense of humor that is needed in this line of work and he is able to connect with any client on a deep level. His endless historical knowledge and creativity allow him to approach workplace conflicts through an emotional intelligence lens as well as a DEI justice lens. I feel like I develop new skills and perspectives and a longer reading list every time I interact with Dr Carter. I’m lucky to have met such an expansive thinker/coach and community builder.
