Consulting & Coaching

Providing individual VIP session or individual feedback using the Intercultural Development Inventory includes results from their profile and developmental plan. VIP sessions focus on identifying target issues, identifying goals, reviewing results, providing opportunity to ask questions, and launching toward accomplishing their goals.

Good people make mistakes

Even for the most well-intentioned managers and leaders, it can be a struggle to navigate the cultural nuances that arise as workplaces and common spaces become increasingly more culturally diverse. Good people make mistakes. They sometimes publicly sputter and trip. They may feel an overwhelming sense of uncertainty, shame, or guilt about their roles in creating change. This may cause them to be avoidant and resist developing cultural competency. At best, they miss opportunities to connect with people from different backgrounds who can offer novel solutions. Loss of time, money and opportunity are other real-life consequences.

Most people want to, and have the capacity to make a difference in the world.  When you work with Jelani Consulting, you will develop the skills you need to:

  • Effectively “manage the mix”
  • Create safety so everyone can learn together
  • Productively negotiate communication and problem-solving styles
  • Strengthening relationships while improving performance
  • Develop and maintain a reputation, both internally and in the marketplace, as a culturally conscious organization
