Not Everyone Wants To Come On Our Inclusion Journey [Episode 200]

This is Episode 200 of the show!

Get your pen and paper ready because we’ve all got some decisions to make about the future even though not everyone wants to come along.

Listen to the end of the show to hear how you can come along to our event to mark 4 years of the show and episode 200!

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • The importance of understanding first principles
  • Accepting that not everyone agrees with your approach
  • Our plans to support you further and much more

People buy into the first principles, but they don’t always buy into the Pace

“The rate of change that I want to see, doesn’t always match the rate of change that others want to see. If you listen to the show you’ll notice that I present the inclusion challenges of the workplace as being urgent.”

People buy into the first principles, but they don’t always buy into the Perspective

“Here’s some data, here’s some research, here’s what’s wrong with the data and what’s wrong with the research, Here’s what I think,  here’s why I’m biased, here’s what I haven’t considered. Here’s my perspective”

People buy into the first principles, but they don’t always buy into the Practice

“If you say you want inclusion, how are you trying to make that happen? Practically.. what are you doing? “
