It’s Not About Culture Fit? Think Different with Melissa Marcelissen

Season 3, Ep. 7

Are you ready to unlock the power of your team’s diversity? It’s happening through inclusion!


Join my conversation with Melissa, who works with executives, leaders and teams to develop Inclusive Leadership Skills. Today she inspires us to see the key to becoming better at inclusion is first  about understanding ourselves. When we are self aware and vulnerable to reflection then we can be open to others’ differences. Not only are we unlocked, we are unguarded to truly value the differences. 


Why differences are a great thing on our team (including leadership) and in business? Is it all about “Culture Fit?”


Listen to Melissa’s humble advice and curiosity. She encourages leadership, real growth, and truly unlocking our awareness. 


OH! There is a challenge within this episode too…. Are you up for it? 


It’s time to move forward…
