Over the course of our lives, we hear the term Roadblocks and usually it has a negative connotation. William Henry built this talk to turn your roadblocks from obstacles to opportunities! William specializes in having D.E.I.I. conversations around leadership development, strategic planning, employee engagement, and culture building. He has more than 20 years of experience enhancing the performance of individual executives, teams, and organizations. His background encompasses a wide range of programs and initiatives for organization design, cultural change and personal development. His stance takes a different approach as he works directly with clients to implement strategies and teach skills that can be carried through every phase of life. William has gained national attention with his motto “We All Play A Role.” William meets leaders where they are in their career path and in their experience of D.E.I.I. knowledge and application: whether it’s newly hired leaders of an organization, key stakeholders taking on challenging new assignments, leaders with management issues, or other high-potential stakeholders who can benefit from clear and constructive feedback. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
One of the most uncomfortable conversations centers around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. One way to help facilitate the conversation is to recognize that it is difficult and use tools that move the conversation forward in the least emotional way possible!
To that end, we have put together a deck of D.E.I.I. flashcards. If you are curious what the second “I” stands for, it is Implementation. These cards help you IMPLEMENT the conversation without the emotion and deals in research and facts!
Each deck contains over 35 of the most used words in the field of work. It can be used to create conversation around the dinner table or in a business or organization on the D.E.I.I. Journey!
In a year of incredible disruption, women are setting a new standard for leadership…
