CANDIDLY COURAGEOUS CONVERSATIONS (C3)

Often well-timed conversations can help clear pathways for much needed change in organizations. Cheryl's Candidly Courageous Conversations (C3) are designed with senior-level executives, managers and associates in mind. She'll facilitate an enlightening dialogue about your company's workplace culture and DE&I practices that enable employees and management alike to learn from alternative perspectives.

Great for awareness months (Black History, Women's History, Asian American Heritage, or Hispanic Heritage), these 60-minute keynote addresses can be converted into half- and full-day workshops and provide an alternative to longer-term coaching programs. They can be tailored for groups of all sizes and are great opportunities to foster clarifying dialogue between leaders and employees.
