Why enroll in the DEI: Solving People Problems™ Workshop?

We operationalize DEI initiatives by creating engaged employees. Instead of focusing on our differences, what separates us, we focus on what we have in common. We do this through exercise-based training and follow up coaching to create a culture of connection.

We give employees new skills to form healthy relationships by understanding why people do what they do. By building a foundation on what we have in common, people find they can work with anyone. Healthy relationships are then created with intentional questions to better understand a person’s motive, perspective, and character.

We increase interaction so employees are engaged at work. 

A lot of DEI seems to burden businesses and often creates contention among employees. You’ve done the work for creating strategic initiatives that will help your organization produce 

What if you had a solution that helped your organization understand other employees and value differences? 

What if you had a textbook on how to form relationships with anyone?

DEI was supposed to create a business culture where everyone feels included and valued. DEI currently focuses on what separates and divides us. You need a new way to Operationalize DEI to create a culture of caring where every employee is engaged and feels valued.

Things that connect us are more important than the things that divide us.

Why Belonging?

Belonging matters because it creates multi-directional relationship with everyone involved. What else does appropriate belonging do?

  • Belonging creates engagement
  • DEI has, in a lot of ways, gotten off track. How do we get it back to where it should be?
  • The problem with compulsion
  • Unity, Understanding, Environment of Caring, (Employee) Flourishing, Actively Engaged in People,
  • Answer the “why people behind what people do”

Do you have a question that isn’t answered here?


How does DEI help fix business needs?

IFI’s unique approach to operationalizing DEI initiatives works to connect people and build unity within your organization. Given the right skills, employees are able to understand and value the contributions of others, both to the organization and to themselves. 

The original intent of DEI was to help people feel like they were a part of the team and to create unity throughout organizations. Many of the organizational objectives designed to meet this goal have had the opposite impact, leading some people to feel more excluded than ever.

What do I need to take the program?

Once you are signed up, just come and enjoy a highly interactive, enjoyable workshop.

Why are you doing live training?

We have learned that the best training–training where skills are retained and used–happens when participants and facilitators can interact and practice newly learned abilities with immediate feedback. Live training also allows the facilitators to respond to participant needs and questions, adapting as needed for the group.

What if I can't attend one of the days?

More classes will be scheduled. While it isn’t preferred, you may split the workshop over separate sessions. If you need to do that or these dates don’t work for you, contact us. We will notify you as further dates are scheduled.

You can always consider bringing us in-house for a company-specific program.

Are recordings available?

We don’t usually make recordings of the workshop available. You can always contact us with questions about recordings.

Why should I take the program?

The missing piece in most organizations’ DEI plan is creating a culture where everyone works to understand and connect with the people around them in a mutually beneficial way. In society, we seem to have lost much of our civility towards each other, which has bled into the workplace.

This program gives participants the necessary tools to restore respect; thereby increasing effectiveness, productivity, longevity, and product quality.

Why is it split into 2 days in 4-hour segments?

For many, two half-day classes are much easier to fit into their busy schedules. The time in between the classes also allows for practice–skills learned and tools used in the first session can be applied and practiced allowing participants to return to class with real-life experience ready to learn the remaining content.

Who should take this workshop?

Creating People Solutions™ has been developed to help people who are working with DEI programs. HR professionals, Executives, and Managers make up the majority of participants but anyone who is trying to build diverse teams will benefit.

What if we already have a DEI plan?

It’s great if your organization has created DEI initiatives. You can think of Creating People Solutations as a way to help your initiatives become more actionable.

If you don’t have a written DEI plan, the principles taught in Creating People Solutions might can help you determine what your organization needs to thrive.

What is your refund policy?

Refunds may be granted 2-weeks prior to the workshop date. After that, money can be used as a deposit. Contact us with further questions.
