Effective goals are clear, simple, numeric, and measurable. The ability to set simple numeric measurements is a critical step in organization alignment. Yet a remarkable amount of leaders and consultants are unaware of the distinction between actions, values, beliefs, standards, and goals.
This understanding is also a key to creating a fully engaged workplace. If you articulate clear goals and give your employees the means to figure out how to achieve them, then you can dramatically increase workplace engagement. However, if you hand down projects or initiatives instead of goals, then your employees will only work on implementing them and think less broadly about the whole organization.
In this intensive interactive session we will explore this critical dimension of leadership and help you unlock your ability to identify fuzzy goals and transform them so you can achieve goal clarity.
At the end of this session participants will learn:
Participants should bring a mission critical initiative or project or have one they can reflect on from their past.

This meeting is for people in the network (and their friends!) to learn more about how Appreciative Inquiry can be used to frame conversations and actions around JEDI.
At this point in our collective journey, it is simply not enough to set goals around moving away from white supremacy and the patriarchal systems that have allowed inequity to thrive. We must have something to move TO, a clear vision of what is possible, and the capacity to see ourselves as agents capable of moving to that best possible future. AI helps us get there.
In this event, I would like to introduce this frame, and then have some experiential conversations about justice and equity using AI. Breakout into pairs to interview and explore in the AI frame, come back and have a rich dialogue about that experience, and brainstorm ways for this lens to be used in current projects or ongoing work around JEDI.
At the end of this session participants will gain:

Many are called to lead toward racial equity and justice yet few know how to do it in a way that makes lasting differences. As consultants, leaders of organizations, teams and groups, the opportunity to transform is great. The roadmap, however, is not so clear.
In this workshop we will experience an approach for determining yours or your organization’s purpose for leading toward racial equity, designed to align your personal or business mission to racial equity. Then we will examine several tools that can help you determine next steps in impactful action.
Janis Avery is a mission-focused, outcome-oriented leader whose leadership coaching fosters alignment in organizations, clarity and belonging.
With deep knowledge and proven results from a 40 year career in human services, Janis is now addressing the root causes of social problems, with racial equity in the center.
