"Emotions Drive People, and People Drive Performance"
We believe that for a sense of belonging to exist in the workplace it requires a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture, based on the practice of emotional intelligence.This means taking both a task and people approach to work, recognizing that everyone plays an important role in the success of the organization. It really just makes good "common sense." Our mission then is to provide assessment, training and coaching, along with emotionally intelligent recruitment and retention, to help organizations improve employee engagement, productivity and wellness.
There is the Emotional Mind, the Rational Mind, and the Wise Mind.
A wise mind takes the best of the two worlds, the emotional mind and the rational mind, and brings them together in what is known as a dialectical point or balance. A wise mind is when both our heart and mind are in congruence, and not in state of conflict with one another. The emotional mind could be described as "Brain 1.0", the rational mind as "Brain "2.0" and the wise mind as "Brain 3.0." By practising something called neuroplasticity we can develop additional neural pathways in our brain to be able to see life from more than just our own perspective.
Ours is a community of business leaders (for profit and non-profit) who come together at our Encompass Leadership Table on a monthly basis to share ideas and resources for furthering diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in the workplace.
