Inclusion Insights is a new training program featuring Steve Robbins, the innovative speaker / socio-scientist storyteller who coined the phrase Unintentional Intolerance. Did we mention he's also very funny?
Inclusion Insights is a powerful presentation of Steve's latest thinking - why inclusion is important, why it's about creativity and innovation, and not just doing the right thing.
The Learning Objectives of the DVD presentation: 1. Examine how nice, well-meaning people engage in unintentional intolerance.
2. Recognize and understand how closed-mindedness and exclusion take place, and how to become more open-minded to new people and novel ideas.
3. Discover how everyday experiences shape our perspectives and influence our interpretations of the people and world around us.
Dr. Robbins' resonating style and unique framework for addressing diversity and inclusion have cultivated an A- list of clients: McDonald's, NASA, BOEING, Nordstrom, Toyota, Stryker, IRS and many more.
Dr. Robbins does not think of himself as a “diversity expert” but as a student of human behavior. His many years of study of human behavior have led him to the conclusion that “diversity work” is really the work of “understanding human behavior in a diversity context.” As he put is, “It is the study of and understanding how people engage and respond to new and novel things, whether those things are people, ideas, ways of doing, etc.”
He adds, "When it comes to what many people think of when they think about diversity it boils down to the idea of the insider and the outsider, how we label insiders and outsiders and how our labels influence our behavior."
If we can begin to understand it from that type of framework we can easily see how developing open-minded individuals and organizational cultures is the first stage of the “diversity journey” and how the work of “diversity and inclusion” can positively impact:
creativity and innovation
employee engagement and enthusiasm
continuous learning and improvement
The unique manner in which Dr. Robbins approaches issues of diversity and inclusion, along with his engaging and motivational style are just a few of the powerful reasons why organizations call on him.
