Welcome to our special series on Diversity and Inclusion.  It isn’t my area of expertise, but obviously a very important topic in the world of business culture.  I gathered 6 experts to close out 2018 to share their perspectives. This is part 2.

Today’s expert guest is Corey Kupfer, attorney, dealmaker, serial entrepreneur and author of Authentic Conversations about Race.  Corey has more than 30 years of professional negotiating experience as a successful entrepreneur and attorney. I believe in changing the world one person at a time, so I was attracted to Corey’s philosophies because he says he wants to create world community one conversation at a time.

Welcome to our special series on Diversity and Inclusion.  It isn’t my area of expertise, but obviously a very important topic in the world of business culture.  I gathered 6 experts to close out 2018 to share their perspectives. This is part 1.

My expert guest today is Jessica Pettitt and I love that her website says she isn’t your typical diversity speaker.  I know Jess and she isn’t your typical anything, which is one of the many reasons I love her. This is her second appearance on my podcast.  She is super bright, super funny, and really strives to make sure everyone realizes they are Good Enough Now. One of my favorite analogies she uses is how to imagine ourselves as a draft document.  We all need editing.

Our guest today is Tim Tobin, Vice President of Franchisee Onboarding and Learning at Choice Hotels International.  He’s also the Dean of Choice University. He will talk to us about how learning processes have changed over time.

Tim and Choice Hotels are well aware of the unique differential between learners. So, they have built a comprehensive approach in Choice University.  The approach is to meet each learner where they are. He found the biggest challenges are time and where to start. Their system incorporates those challenges and the solution is learning maps.  This gives people the opportunity to be given the first step to take and allows them to study what they don’t’ know and not have to spend the time with what they already know.

Tim has learned about humility and that asking questions is a sign of wisdom, not weakness.  A great lesson for everyone.

Our guest today is Bob Kelleher.  I call him the granddaddy of employee engagement since his website is EmployeeEngagement.com.  Bob is also the founder and president of The Employee Engagement Group, a global survey, products, and consulting firm working with leadership teams to enhance their leadership and employee engagement effectiveness.

 

Bob talks about the importance of engaging the whole person and its benefit of discretionary effort.  Find out why your employees need to know where the business is going, how your business is doing and how your employees contribute to those goals.
