Microinequities: The Power of Small™ program focuses on how we send messages across businesses, borders and cultures. It instructs participants how to drive rapid behavior change, incorporate this skill into the realm of routine workplace interactions and measurably raise business leadership and diversity performance. Repeated sending or receiving of negative micromessages, MicroInequities, results in exponential erosion of workforce effectiveness. It’s these very messages that often cause colleagues who receive them to question their value and ultimately their commitment to a business. Conversely, well-crafted and constructive micromessages, MicroAdvantages, have an equally powerful positive effect that promotes loyalty and heightened performance.
