Reimagine Organizational Development consults with organizational leaders to address blind spots in diversity, equity, and inclusion. President Tanjia Coleman, Ph.D., heads the innovative leadership-based organization by promoting organizational and business outcomes often beyond the reach of normative behavior. Dr. Coleman’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Consulting Institute delivers a stylistically informative approach to adopting DEI standards that fit your organization, community, or enterprise. No two organizations are the same, and no two DEI models work the same.
Communities without a voice are subjected to displacement. During my conversation with Dr. Coleman, her sense of community is internalized, motivated, and appropriate in her work. Lowering the bar for people of color is distasteful. Including all people in the conversation by giving them a seat at the table is an informed decision to bridge this gap between projected social justice and actual results. Her vision for DEI and Organizational Development is logical, sensible, and doable under her consulting firm, which has effectively made the organizational transition a reality.
“We’re expecting you to have a voice in what’s happening in this community.”
DEI demands a collective attitude to affirm success. Individual success stories fall short as communities struggle to inherit the benefits. For those who do not fit a particular profile, “it is hard to dig yourself out of that hole every day…” Dr. Coleman envisions DEI as a community-driven path through a change in organizational development. Lowering the standard is not the answer to diversity. Holding teams and leaders accountable by increasing the standard is more appropriate.
Dr. Coleman tackles resilience in a relentless world in Three Second World: Essentials for Engineering Your Future. Leadership is exhausting. Trying to lead while managing and balancing the work-life pressures leaves even the most capable leaders overwhelmed, left without the fight. Dr. Coleman empathizes, strategies, and navigates an ever-changing workplace dynamic to maintain focus and well-being amidst the burden of responsibility. The Time to be an Executive Woman of Command is here and now. Dr. Tanjia Coleman has embraced her Woman of Command and is sharing the experience, value, and strategic initiative in her ground-breaking book.
Navigating your personal life, career, or the often inaccessible work-life balance is a challenge. Dr. Coleman references her book as a “blueprint” for navigating these distinguishing areas. Think of yourself as a brand – associate with the people who will inspire your brand – because you “have to be the Captain of your Ship” to make it work. Leadership is a challenge. Captaining the ship amidst the waves is a bigger barrier to self-affirmation and confidence. Dr. Coleman’s book is interpersonal to you, your path, goals, and journey. She shares her experiences, philosophy, and framework for tenured success in this intelligently optimistic worldview of our society.
As she navigates her own journey as a Woman of Command, she shares her experiences, philosophy, and a blueprint for success that resonates on a personal level. Dr. Coleman’s intelligently optimistic worldview inspires us to embrace our own leadership potential and confidently captain our ships toward a brighter future.
