I’m often asked what can we do that’s innovative and groundbreaking in the D&I space, but I think that’s the wrong question. Innovation isn’t the problem, it is the collective intention or lack thereof. The No. 1 reason progress is not advanced is because it is not prioritized. It is fundamentally a lack of will and sustained follow-through.
So before grandiose notions are spoken and the new best thing is proffered, organizations need to make some wholesale assessments by using the six R’s:
When organizations approach objectives in a comprehensive manner, the odds for success increase, and while a singular focus may feel like the appropriate path to success, it can lead to a piecemeal strategy that creates inefficiencies and unintended outcomes. As the great Winston S. Churchill is credited to have said, “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”
