Cancel culture. Disbanded groups. Severed ties. Intent vs Impact. Most of us are shit at dealing with problematic behavior - our own or others! Whether in our nonprofits, our neighborhood groups, activist communities or families - our unresolved conflicts cause damage, chaos and separation - in times where we need unity, repair and one-ness to best serve our communities. Enter Kevin Baker whose mission is to make sure people can bring their authentic cultural selves to the workplace, creating healthier, more open workspaces that better serve humans.
Kevin and I talk about how a whole bunch of us really need therapy, what it means to take a relationship-first approach to workplace conflict, and why we need to ditch our desire for quick fixes and allow ample time for repair work.
Kevin Baker is bringing that rich voice and beautiful mindset to The Ethical Rainmaker! Kevin is a consultant whose mission focuses on making sure people can bring their authentic cultural selves to the workplace, creating healthier, more open workspaces that better serve employees and their clients. And he does this all through a diversity and inclusion lens.
You can find Kevin (and hire him) at The Kevin Baker Consulting
Thank you so much to Kevin for all the deep work you have done and for the work you do!!
The Ethical Rainmaker is a podcast, hosted by Michelle Shireen Muri, that explores the world of inequity in nonprofits and philanthropy, including where we should step into our power or step out of the way! It is my desire and effort to bring zero-cost information, case studies, and inspiration to everyone in the third sector — especially those who want to do better on this journey.
