  • Have a sophisticated understanding of organizational learning and how the associated practices positively impact inclusion, organizational health, positioning, and growth.
  • Practice engaging colleagues in processes that clarify vision and create momentum.
  • Have practical tools for engaging change in their organizations.
  • Have tools for differently approaching long-standing problems.
  • Increase empathy related to different roles in the organization, and act as a bridge across stakeholder groups.
