Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces

By Karen Catlin

Are you looking to build a workplace culture with a certain buzz about it? Where employees are thriving and engagement survey scores are through the roof. Where people from different backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and abilities are hired and set up for success--and they all want their friends to work there too, because it's so awesome.

One secret to creating this kind of workplace is allyship. And it's something anyone can do.

In Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces, you'll learn to spot situations where you can create a more inclusive culture, along with straightforward steps to take. Leadership coach Karen Catlin will walk you through how to be a better ally, including:

  • Hiring and retaining a diverse workforce
  • Amplifying and advocating for others
  • Giving effective and equitable performance feedback
  • Using more inclusive language

Read this book to level-up your ally skills and create a culture where everyone, including you, can do their best work and thrive.
