Individual Diversity/Sensitivity Coaching
Diversity Builder, Inc. has a proven record of success in helping employees gain an understanding of how their actions and language at work impact others. Our company provides tools to align an employee’s behavior with the company’s inclusion standards. When a diversity or sensitivity issue involves one of your executives, managers, or another valued employee, taking corrective action is essential to show your commitment to the employee and responding appropriately to a workplace complaint.
Online/Onsite Coaching and Mentoring
Individualized training may be requested by a human resources (HR) manager resulting from a situation involving a policy violation and subsequent corrective action, an HR investigation, performance management, or part of an employee or manager development plan.
Diversity Builder’s confidential coaching sessions are designed to refocus thoughts and behaviors that can create costly personnel issues, poor team and individual performance, and possibly have legal impacts.
