Why a must read:
* This book speaks to CEOs and every employee in an organization.
* Jennifer shares her proven thought leadership at innovative, pragmatic and personal levels. She connects-the-dots on in a way that resonates with each reader’s needs.
* Our workplaces cannot thrive without a fully engaged, inclusive and purpose-driven workforce.
* We need to feel “Welcomed, Valued, Respected, and HeardSM” to bring our authentic selves to work and contribute fully in the workplace.
* Each of us has our own diversity story influenced by multiple cultural identities. We all have experienced what it feels like to be excluded.
* The rich content is thought-provoking and adaptable on workplace and individual levels.
Jennifer closes with a final call to action: “We will need everyone. At whatever level, with whatever identity, or in whatever package they’re born— everyone is needed to create true culture change”
This book offers direct, hands-on, and immediately usable tools for the motivated leader.
I also love the deep dive into the mindsets of Millennials and the wholeness of the way Jennifer Brown represents them. Many Gen Xers and Boomers see themselves as victims to the younger set for questioning the way things have been done, and to authority in general, and so choose not to embrace their inherent differences. The hard work here is in building new mental and communication structures that reduce fear, and instead work to connect. Jennifer provides substantive lessons in how to do overcome these challenges.
