What Are YOU Doing To Make Your Workplace Safe?


June is Pride Month, and because I am focused on transforming workplaces to make them more inclusive, I want to honor the observance by asking organizational leaders if they plan to do the same.

Do the LGBTQIA+ members of your team feel like they can bring their whole selves to work? Do you think changing the colors of your company logo to a rainbow will make them feel that way? Strong leadership needs to be proactive. Leaders need to literally take the lead on providing tools and implementing strategies to ensure that everyone in the workplace feels seen, heard, and psychologically safe. This issue’s Simply Good article provides some real-life examples of what organizations can do to make certain that’s the case.

In Simply Diversity, I challenge leaders even further — to move beyond the lip service and hollow promises of how you’ll make your workplace more diverse and inclusive and finally do something that is useful.

Author John Maxwell once wrote, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” The last few years have opened our eyes to the way we’ve been going and convicted us to consider a different direction. Leaders, it’s high time for us to get moving.

Finally, I hope you’ll join me (whether in-person or online) on Monday, June 13, for my presentation at the 2022 Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) conference. Check out What’s Happening for more details.

With appreciation,

We fail when we refuse to act. In this session, I’ll discuss organizational change, how work has evolved, and the role that leaders play in organization failure. I’ll also share why leaders are failing to meet expectations and what the disconnect is between senior leaders, teams, and the organization as a whole.
