Organizations reap the benefits of diversity—when employees bring their whole, authentic selves to work. Diverse teams are more productive, innovative, and engaged. Authenticity at work includes sharing and speaking up about work and life experiences that may be different based on one's identity. Developing the skills to conduct meaningful conversations on potentially polarizing topics such as race, religion, and gender is critical for human resources professionals, managers, and team leaders. Mary-Frances Winters offers a multistep process for building the skills necessary to engage in inclusive conversations. Find out how to conduct an exploratory self-assessment to better understand yourself and your team, learn tactics to go from polarization to common ground, and discover practical techniques for discussing difficult topics.

Developing a Critical Thinking Mindset (LinkedIn Learning)

Click here to learn more and access course.
Critical thinking is often cited as a desirable skill to have, but what exactly does it mean to be a critical thinker, and how does one achieve this mindset? The goal of critical thinking is to give ourselves time and tools for improving how we think, to see things closer to how they really are, and get a better sense of the world. But just understanding the concepts won’t get you there. As Becki Saltzman explains, developing a critical thinking mindset requires commitment and deliberate practice. Becki shows how to put critical thinking knowledge to work to create a mindset that enables you to examine information and determine how to assess information you can trust.
