Contact UsWe Can Help

We help you develop Inclusive Leadership; Diverse & Collaborative Teams, and Equitable Organizational Cultures. Our customized and trauma 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.

Each phase of our work goes beyond traditional DEI and Leadership efforts and focuses on the core components of building authentic human connections to foster deep bonds between people so everyone can feel they are valued, heard, understood, and belong. Authentic human connection helps people exchange positive energy, increase empathy for others and build a culture of trust. Each phase of our process builds on the previous to support sustainable change.

Assessment

Assessment

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.

Education

Education

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

Training

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 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. Issac Carter’s coaching has empowered me to step into my own as a woman leader in an authentic and whole way. The valuable tools and learning I have gained from the social emotional intelligence training and his knowledge of establishing equitable systems and practices has given me the means to walk the talk and shape changes which have brought about more inclusivity, equity, and diversity. Dr. Issac Carter’s coaching is intuitive, sharp, and artful and I recommend hiring him if you are seeking a real shift and change in your workplace’s culture and systems.

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.
