Hi, I’m Shola!
Would you like to create an equitable workplace with engaged staff?
Has this extended period of remote working created divisions within your teams or organisation?
Is it time for your leaders and managers to improve feedback and increase transparency within the organisation?
A recent survey of 800+ companies revealed that the #1 action organisations can take to increase belonging and engagement is for senior leaders to listen, hear and act upon what employees say.
This is COMPASSIONATE EMPATHY, and it’s even more effective than popular measures such as unconscious bias training , creating employee resource groups, and using AI to anonymise CVs.
What I offer:
Keynote speeches and programmes on Empathy at Work, Empathy for Leaders, and Empathy, Diversity & Inclusion, that increase belonging, engagement and happiness at work.
Empathy Skills for Leaders programmes to help your senior, mid-level, and emerging leaders create a culture of retention, innovation and loyalty.
Empathy, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Masterclasses to help your company become an engaging, compassionate place to work. Spanning listening, leadership, inclusive communication, and reducing damaging microaggressions, we explore practical strategies that help people work together better.
How I work – what makes me different
I break everything down into implementable frameworks and models. That way, as soon as you leave the session you have tools and insights you can use immediately.
I’m a LinkedIn Learning instructor, author of 2 books, and an award-winning speaker with clients located from California to Canary Wharf.
During sessions I share relatable, first-hand experiences. As a woman, a person of colour and an introvert, I understand some of the struggles organisations face to create diverse and inclusive workplaces. I’ve worked with a range of clients from the STEM professions to financial services, media, FMCG and healthcare.
I leave nothing to chance and make no assumptions. People call my work ‘transformative’, ‘engaging’, and ‘easy to absorb’.
