"Under the leadership of GPC, my colleagues and I accepted the challenge of discussing issues that impact us both personally and professionally. Starting with personal reflections about microinequities and identity, we forged ahead and leaned in, confronting realities about how microaggressions, for example, are felt by some colleagues. Although there were moments of awkwardness and hesitancy in voicing opinions and feelings, there were many more breakthroughs in being curious about a colleague’s viewpoint and honoring and respecting differing perspectives. GPC laid the groundwork for these real talk conversations by selecting the activities that encouraged the staff to feel safe, supported, and respected.

GPC’s direct work with my staff might be over; however, their influence continues to resonate with my colleagues and me as we explore ways to carry on the team building dialogues and change the way we think about an issue and how we honor and incorporate team norms in our daily activities. As a result of GPC’s leadership, we are empowered to be catalysts of change by relying upon strategies and experience to undertake conversations about diversity and cultural competencies. “

“Thank you again for your efforts in facilitating this week's leadership training for my group.  You really did a great job engaging us all and making us think.  I have already taken action today by sharing my Leadership Credo with my boss and handing out a few appreciation cards to my department teammates.  It felt good!”                                                                                                                    Executive, Konica Minolta Business
