Sadly, most companies are blind to the disconnect between leadership and diverse talent, which leads to inadequate support in the workplace.

The biggest cause of the disconnect is the lack of emotional intelligence and awareness in the workplace.

Personal Growth Stories

Dealing with imposter syndrome and self-sabotage

An executive who worked for a large mortgage company in the U.S. and without a college degree questioned the news of a big promotion and pay increase with her company. Despite her work and feedback from the department heads saying otherwise, she didn't feel qualified for it.

We had her detail all of her accomplishments. Seeing everything she had a hand in on paper, we then asked her if the work she saw in front of her deserved recognition and promotion. We asked her to look at her work as someone else and evaluate whether or not that person deserved a big promotion.

The answer was YES. She realized she deserved the recognition and promotion and the absence of the degree didn't take away from her results.
