Audacious Coaching shifts the mindset to value diversity and inclusion by creating tool kits that build skill sets.  The  result is the enhancement of employee engagement and morale. We help executives and teams talk authentically about race and differences. Our world demands us to talk about race in a safe space. Audacious Coaching creates that precious space.

Learning Modalities

We recognize that all adults do not learn the same. We employ experiential learning techniques based on adult learning theory. We respect the knowledge and wisdom that each person brings into the room as they try on new skills and behaviors. We pride ourselves on opening communication that touch hearts and does not alienate those with different opinions or frames of references. We also employ simulation learning so that participants get to walk in the shoes of others who are different.

The core curriculum includes but is not limited to:

  • Implicit Bias
  • Micro Inequities
  • Race, Gender, and Transgender Issues
  • Language and usage
  • Authentic Stories
  • Workplace Socialization
  • Shifting Mindsets
  • New Workplace Realities
  • Legal imperatives
  • Workplace morale

Valuing Diversity: What We Believe

Valuing Diversity requires a desire to want to know another person’s story. Through stories we find common threads to weave our lives together. Stories help us to appreciate each other and our common humanness. Stories help to open communication abut differences. Valuing Diversity is a process that has to be nurtured with an engagement strategy.

Managing Diversity: What We Know

Managing Diversity is the foundation of a successful strategy to enrich the workforce. It requires professional development on an ongoing basis. Companies that are in for the long view design systems and strategies to ensure diversity is a core value. Managing Diversity requires listening and leading to ensure all voices are heard.

 Through coaching, training, and simulation activities, the team of professionals excels in meeting client goals through a variety of learning modalities. Because coaching is an integral part of its learning system, Audacious Coaching has developed a stellar reputation for client satisfaction. We focus on the human system (through whole person development) to provide solutions to employee morale, engagement, and career success. We increase profitability and minimize legal actions by building individual and team leadership capacity to appreciate and operationalize the principles of diversity and inclusion.

Testimonials

Tamara S. Hamilton accepted the invitation of the Diversity Committee of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, Columbia, MD to address the community … Tamara worked with us in advance to discern the type of audience we are, and what we would value hearing. Tamara presented an excellent speech, “The Blessings of Multiculturalism”, in the context of a workshop, which enabled her audience to interact with her and each other several times. The entire experience was overwhelmingly successful! We were grateful that Tamara joined us and enriched us by her words and presence.
