Diversity training is stupid

Kansas City Diversity Training Diversity training is a fluke. Let me use my “I” voice.

The concept of training is delivering information to change performance. Performance is linked to how we reach desired goals, or simply put – how we do things. So, I conclude that issues of race, tolerance and diversity are entirely too complex for a training environment.

I know.  The diversity trainers of the world are wailing in contempt.

Let me start at the beginning. Racism is a learned behavior. It is deeply ingrained into one’s identity, psyche and belief system. Only an idiot (sorry no other word would fit here) would believe

Finding the right career - Kansas City Training Consultant

Find the right career for me

“How do I find the right career for me?”

Age-old question.  Everyone has asked that question at some point.

Finding the right career is the key to not dreading Monday mornings. Well, maybe that statement is a bit of a stretch. But, if you choose a career that aligns with your personality, you’re more likely to have fun at work and find the job personally fulfilling. Before you choose your first (or second career), I want you to consider your natural talents, skills and life goals. You may not be able to attend one of my Kansas City career exploration workshops, but you can start your own journey toward self-discovery with an online session with me. This Forbes’ article is also a terrific place to get started.

Some interests are meant to be your life’s work,
others are meant to be nothing more than hobbies.
It’s important to know which is which.

For over twenty years, I have worked throughout Kansas City as a training facilitator in the nonprofit and business community. My career began with a non-profit called YouthNet.  Boy, I loved that job.

Our funding enabled us to partner with youth development organizations to provide Advancing Youth Development (AYD) training as well as a host of other modules. We provided training for youth worksers in organizations in Kansas City such as: Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Girl Scouts, Anytown, Whatsoever Community Center, Synergy Services and many more.

The AYD training teaches Kansas City youth workers the “science” associated with working with young people.  Our other modules (like True Colors and parent involvement trainings) helped organizations cultivate welcoming and effective culture within the organization.

YouthNet is gone and I’m now a consultant focusing on Kansas City team-building training.  As a consultant, I deliver team-building training and personal effectiveness modules to change negative thinking (which soon impact performance), inept practices and strengthen teams in positive, lasting ways.

Hey, culture is where it’s at! I know that’s not grammatically correct, but it’s true! I know how to begin to change your workplace culture and I will work with you to help.

 

If you can change your culture you will impact performance. I’m talking about both team and personal performance.
