Monthly Chapter Meeting: Uncommon Language for Common Ground

Monthly Chapter Meeting


Uncommon Language for Common Ground

Gayle Guest-Brown, PCC, MBA - 6:30 PM - 8:15 PM Pacific Time


Earning .75 Core Competencies and .25 Resource Development CCEUs 

2020 brought us the twin pandemics, one viral (COVID-19) and one racial (1619).  Companies across the nation waded into discussions of race at work.  The once-taboo topic is fast becoming one that leaders must master. As Coaches, understanding the terminology, establishing a common language is the first step toward helping leaders establish common ground.  What common ground?  At the end of the day, we are all human.


U.S. employers are looking for ways to address racial issues and close the communication skills gap among leaders. Increasingly, managers and leaders will be discussing how racial inequities affects employees' job performance and sense of belonging.  Participants will learn or experience:

·       Racial Equity Terminology

·       Resources to expand your Racial Equity knowledge

·       Video and Break out-groups.

·       Community discussions and polls on the burgeoning ICF-SAC DEI efforts
