Novel approach aims to save $2,700 per employee through training leaders
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Training for CEOs and their teams in the wake of the #MeToo movement can have major beneficial implications on the bottom line says a new report.
Thom Dennis, a former British Royal Marine and founder of the corporate change consultancy Serenity in Leadership, says that improving the mindset of leaders can lead to the elimination of sexual harassment, diversity avoidance, concealment, deception and bullying. “It’s a positive choice they can make which could save a corporation of 10,000 employees around $27,300,000 per year,” says Dennis. He goes on: “This is the first time there is a clear mathematical formula that business leaders can apply to their own organizations to calculate the likely overhead they are incurring, without knowing it. The time is now for them to explore, even if they don’t believe they have this challenge; they have much to gain.”
In a new whitepaper, he shares the formula and outlines the first simple steps leaders can take to stamp out such damage. Dennis emphasizes from his 27 years’ experience as a change facilitator how bias in leaders in an organization – whether conscious or unconscious – has led to public embarrassment for global brands, expensive litigation suits and diminished company loyalty amongst staff. And yet, many senior C-level executives, it seems, remain focused on short-term goals and are unaware of the costs that result from dysfunctional behavior.
The whitepaper highlights the complexity surrounding gender bias, sexual harassment and inclusion in the workplace, and concludes that in spite of the pressures that have been exerted through the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns, the majority of organizations have yet to engage with the issue. The paper gives the reader a large amount of evidence that supports an executive in persuading their colleagues that there is much to be gained now from making an investment in themselves as part of their overall risk management planning. The potential savings are substantial.
Dennis’ Conscious Power program creates a journey for the executive team with dialogue sessions, in-house workshops and transformational leadership retreats to offer them a path toward greater self-awareness, authenticity and ethical leadership. The effect of Conscious Power is to invigorate them and offers a series of concrete steps to change.
Details of the Conscious Power program are on the Serenity in Leadership website, as well as a downloadable copy of the whitepaper.
