Leadership CoP: Building Belonging Within Ourselves and Our Organizations


Work cultures that don’t truly include all employees create environments where time is wasted, employees are disengaged, and they don’t care about their work. Organizations with inclusive cultures reap the benefits of employees who are fully engaged, care about their work, and love what they do. Belonging is a natural need, but it can become crippling and toxic. At work, not being ourselves can severely limit our career paths and our professional growth. Outside of work, when we’re not our own true selves, we deprive ourselves and others of true connection. In this program, talent development leader Wendy Gates Corbett shares practical strategies we can use to remind ourselves, each other, and the team members we work with that we all belong. These simple strategies can be employed at work and outside the office to empower ourselves and others in leading in ways that connect, respect, and protect.

In this experiential program, you will learn how to:

  • Connect: with yourself and with others in ways that foster true connection
  • Respect: yourself and others in ways that demonstrate that they (and you) are valued and respected
  • Protect: yourself and others by fostering work cultures that protect workers’ (and your own) humanity
