Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Politics, religion, race - we can't talk about topics like these at work, right? But in fact, these conversations are happening all the time, and if they aren't handled effectively, they can become even more polarizing and divisive, impacting productivity, engagement, retention, teamwork, and even an employee's sense of safety in the workplace. But in this concise and powerful book, Mary-Frances Winters, a thought leader in the field of diversity and inclusion, shows you how to lay the groundwork for having bold, inclusive conversations - conversations that address those difficult topics in ways that bring people together instead of driving them apart. Through the exercises and tools Winters offers here, you can prepare for the process of having these conversations effectively and ethically. And although major issues are unlikely to be nicely and neatly settled in just one conversation, if you combine diligence, good intentions, careful introspection, and patience, success is within yo ur g rasp

   A Thoughtful, 360-Degree DEI Viewpoint
Winters is a smart, insightful, and practical case for having clear, step-by-step conversations at work as well as bold, inclusive guidance on how complex dialogue can occur in a positive way for beneficial outcomes. This is a huge work. One of the things I loved about the writing of winters was my description of what could be perceived as impossible work, my talking to her on the page '' and I read something like how could I do this and produce my event and do my grant proposals... '' and Winters responded intuitively, writing I know what you are thinking. Your time and workload don 't allow time to commit to this work... Although I am not sure how this guide fits in my personal journey or my organization, it is definitely a must read, the 360-degree view.

   Utter Disappointment
The content was not very helpful or useful. My employer recommended reading it before the office - racism - discussions started. For the life of me, I don 't know why this book was chosen as a facilitating resource.

   This is a Must-Read for leaders in every organization!
The author covers in the book how to talk at work about race, religion, politics and other polarizing topics. This is a book intended to raise our awareness about our differences, to adopt a proactive approach to the divided conversations that keep people strong, and do it from a standpoint of understanding. The organizations do not operate in a bubble ''. What happens in the external world has a direct impact on employees, and they talk about it at work, whether we like it or not.

   Mary-Francis Winters makes the case on why we need to ...
Mary-Francis Winters makes the case that we need to start conversations about race, gender, ethnicity and all our differences and similarities in the workplace, with the most contemporary examples affecting our national culture today. These are the conversations we have on social media, but remain uncomfortably silent in the workplace. The themes are difficult, but she has written a book that the beginner and the expert can understand equally, which sets the stage for conversations to take place at work in the language we all understand.
