Course Description

The workplace is changing at an alarming rate. Humans have expressed a need to belong more than ever. It’s becoming especially important for organizations and leaders to be prepared for the future that employees, customers, and other stakeholders are demanding. But, while “belonging” is a word we throw around a lot, how do you actually achieve it? How is it different from DEI?

In this class we will explore belonging through three dimensions (self, team, and organizational levels). After also exploring the definitions, we will learn and practice tactics to create, embrace, and embody it. We will also explore why creating psychologically safe atmospheres in which employees, clients, and colleagues feel safe being their authentic selves can have a positive impact on productivity, employee wellbeing, and organizational culture.

The final two days will focus on evaluating how far you are away from embodying (or creating) true belonging by understanding the degree to which you regularly get below the surface in everyday interactions and promote supportive accountability. Based on all the new knowledge we acquire, we will build a vision for the future to sustain belonging in our own lives.

This course is open to leaders in business and the nonprofit sector, HR practitioners, coaches, managers, community organizers, organizational consultants, educators and students, and anyone interested in creating a culture of psychological safety, belonging, and below the surface relationships at work.
