Taking Swift Action to Elicit Real Change

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Denise Reed Lamoreaux (Chief Diversity Officer at ATOS), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • Remove those tentative statements by omitting words of doubt such as “I think”, rather say “this is the solution”
  • Be specific in your word choice by saying, “Friday is the deadline”, rather than, “I need it ASAP”
  • Provide people with resources after a meeting to go back to, this helps with retaining information
  • Ask people who don’t think like you to give you feedback, you need this to make improvements
  • If you want to be known as a role model, you have to be bold, take that next step in action
  • Communicate with power. Every time you remain silent, that means that this situation could happen again.
