Make inclusion work for you
A Note from Jody
My clients sometimes refer to me as an “organizational shrink,” perhaps because I have a track record of success in restoring high functionality and a renewed sense of well-being to work environments bogged down in conflict and distrust.
Just as individuals struggle with trust, boundaries, bad habits and fears, organizations also struggle with these issues. Why? Because organizations are made up of people.
If your people are not working together as well as they could be, the success of your enterprise is at risk. I provide solutions that promote healthy, productive work environments and allow organizations to thrive.
Why does it matter?
Economic, demographic and social changes require us to look at how we work. These changes present big challenges. They also offer unmatched opportunity if you develop the savvy to work with them.
Decades of research have linked inclusion and workplace respect with:
- Greater creativity and innovation
- Better problem-solving
- Talent attraction and retention
- Better customer relationships
- Increased market share
- A host of cost-saving benefits
Companies with inclusive practices have consistently outperformed the market by as much as 23.5% across all economic conditions. And equity – ensuring that everyone can participate in and contribute to economic systems – is emerging in new research as a superior growth model.
