Inviting diverse clients into your insurance agency

Why Your Insurance Agency Should Be More Inclusive

Typically, my articles speak generally to professionals in a variety of roles and industries. Today though, I want to address insurance agents directly. Why Insurance Agents? I spent more than a decade working in the insurance industry. Because of this, I appreciate the unique role insurance plays in our society. First, insurance makes all economic…

Network Like a CHAMP Networking Activity Journal

Networking Goals: How Much Networking Is Enough?

After a conference or corporate training event, I try to follow up with each participant. Have they made progress toward their goals? Are they using what they learned? What questions do they have? How can I help? This week, someone sent me the following response. Their question is one that other people may also wonder…

"Don't I know you?"

“Don’t I know you?” A lesson in inclusion

A fantastic question landed in my inbox, and I wanted to share it with you. “If I run into someone I know, presenting in a different gender outside of work, how should I handle that? Do I acknowledge that I recognize them? If so, do I use the name I know them as, or do…

Unemployed Isn't "Unemployable"

Unemployed, Not “Unemployable”

Have you ever received a job application from someone who isn’t currently working? Were you quick to move it to the bottom of the pile? Do you equate “unemployed” with “unemployable”? Be honest.

How do you measure inclusive culture?

How do you measure “inclusive culture”?

It’s back-to-school time in Indiana, which means new teachers, new classes, and new classmates. Every year, I worry whether my kids will have friends in their classes, whether their teachers will recognize their unique talents, and whether the administrators support a truly inclusive learning environment. Is being an employee really any different? As our organizations…

Flexible work arrangements work well when companies plan ahead

Flexible Work Arrangements: Plan for Productivity

It’s a much-debated topic and a growing trend, but most companies still don’t seem to take a deliberate approach to flexible work arrangements. Instead, they just offer a vague middle ground of “flexible work arrangements” on a case by case basis. There are strong arguments for encouraging remote working and, conversely, arguments for bringing everyone…

Living Corporate: Media as Mentorship

Living Corporate: Media as Mentorship

I often ask my audiences, “What perspectives does your network IGGNORE?” If you’ve read Network Beyond Bias or attended one of my programs, you know that “IGGNORE” is an acronym that represents different aspects of diversity. One great way to learn from different perspectives is to seek out media from non-traditional sources. You can even think…
