Enabling Leaders™ is a purpose-built space for employees with disabilities to share their unique challenges and learn from one another’s experiences while building their leadership communication skills. Engaging in development with leaders who’ve had similar experiences and face common challenges creates a safe, trusting environment where true learning, growth, and support can occur.
This learning experience is designed by, led by, and offered exclusively by The Humphrey Group’s own roster of facilitators with disabilities. The sharing of experiences is central to the learning experience.
What Participants Learn in our Enabling Leaders™ Program:
We recognize that the specific communication challenges facing leaders with disabilities can vary by organization, so the first step in the development process is a partnership to determine exactly which skills we need to address in your program. We then develop a learning experience for your leaders with disabilities tailored to your needs. Though specific learning outcomes may vary, the overall goal is to empower members of your community of leaders with disabilities to overcome barriers, thrive, and show leadership in the workplace.
In this learning experience, you can achieve the following outcomes with one of our proven designs, or you can tailor the content and design to your specific needs. Participants in Enabling Leaders™ may receive the knowledge and tools to:
- Approach communication as an act of leadership.
- Cultivate a strong core of conviction to support their brand.
- Design a leadership brand that aligns with their core convictions and values.
- Build resilience in the face of challenges.
- Project a powerful and authentic presence, both in-person and virtually.
- Use storytelling to share their convictions authentically and persuasively.
- Grow their accessibility network and strengthen existing networks within the organization.
