At Highest Path, we believe in valuing the strengths and talents of our entire workforce. To do this, we must first understand that everyone brings a unique set of qualities, ways of thinking, and behaving to the way they work. To combat persistent bias and the challenges many industries face in supporting the advancement of women and minorities in the workplace, we need a better understanding of the behaviors that build diverse, inclusive, and high-performing teams.
This program help teams and organizations move past ineffective models of leadership based on an outdated, top-down approach and toward a model that is much more collaborative and balanced. In doing so, we can create environments where people feel safe to contribute and thrive, thus driving innovation and better business performance.
Highest Path offers the Building Leaders, Building Inclusion™ program centered around a model of leadership developed at Highest Path. The model is based on research and behavioral studies that tell us the qualities that people are looking for in their leaders today, which are geared to create workplaces that are much more collaborative and high-performing, thus driving innovation and creativity.
In this program, participants will learn about past, present and future leadership models, and will be introduced to a new leadership approach that includes leadership qualities that drive innovation. They will learn how develop capacities such as collaboration, empathy, humility and care coupled with resilience, being assertive and direct. Designed as an interactive and engaging training, participants will gain awareness of unconscious bias and how to combat the impacts of bias through developing inclusive behaviors in themselves to drive high performing teams, an engaged and motivated workforce, and most importantly, better products and services for customers.
