One common enemy: the disconnect between leadership & diverse talent
Many companies and corporations fall victim to the widening disconnect between leadership and diverse talent in the workplace…
A disconnect we like to call the collective trauma gap
According to Psychology Today:
“Collective trauma refers to the impact of a traumatic experience that affects and involves entire groups of people, communities or societies… collective trauma is extraordinary in that not only can it bring distress and negative consequences to individuals, but it can also change the entire fabric of a community.”Start Now
And here’s what most companies DON’T know…
When collective trauma finds its way in the workplace, we found that it creates a widening gap between leaders and diverse talent. And it affects both sides in very negative ways! For example:
Employees of diverse backgrounds
may bring unconscious stress and trauma from racism, discrimination, and unconscious bias into the work environment -- which negatively affects their confidence and efforts to advance in their career.
Meanwhile, company leaders become hesitant to provide open and candid feedback when managing diverse talent due to fear of cancel culture, potential defamation, false accusations of misconduct, and other career-threatening issues.
The Collective Trauma Gap can make it difficult for both leadership and diverse talent to see the perspective of one another, creating misunderstanding and even lack of empathy from both sides.
As a result, this HARSHLY impacts the revenue and bottom line of your business, making 38% LESS revenue than companies with more diversity! And that’s where we come in.
“The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety.”
W. Somerset Maugham
