Our team brings expertise in leadership development, diversity and inclusion, organization development, and coaching. Our programs apply social and behavioral science and are grounded in evidence-based research.
Below are Include's unique knowledge areas:
Mindfulness-based Interpersonal Dynamics - Clients learn interpersonal skills in safe relationships, where one can courageously stretch and grow. Meditation and contemplative practices are foundational in our programs. T-group is a method that we often use to develop interpersonal skills; it is also the core method in Stanford University's popular course, Interpersonal Dynamics.
Compassionate Self-Care - When one is passionate about being of service and addressing the suffering in the world, it can be challenging to care for oneself. Self-care skills are embedded into all of our programs because compassionate care for oneself is essential to inclusive leadership.
Transformative Learning - Transformative Learning is a field within Adult Education that focuses on the development of cognitive, emotional and behavioral capabilities to respond effectively to the increasing complexities in the 21st century.
Somatics - Our physical experience can connect us to our common humanity. Around the world, we all breathe the same air. Our bodies can be great teachers of inclusion. We facilitate physical experiential activities to enable a deeper connection to the self, each other, and to nature. Physical activities teach self-awareness, emotional intelligence, collaboration and innovation.
Arts-based Learning - We facilitate simple but powerful activities from improvisation, music, theater, visual art, poetry and movement. Improvisation Labs is a human interaction workshop that develops the Use of Self through physical theater and interpersonal mindfulness practices. Dreamscape is a culture change method that utilizes multi-media art to engage multiple stakeholders in collaboration.
Psycho-educational Assessments - Our assessments enable individuals and groups to increase awareness. We use rigorously-tested, reliable, valid metrics and are qualified to administer the Global Competency Inventory, the Intercultural Effectiveness Scale, and the Life Journey Map.
