Better Outcomes begin with an Epoch Education

Too often, in our workplaces, schools, and communities, we don’t know if we’re valued… or if we simply provide value. We don’t know if our differences will be accepted, or if we should try to hide them and do our best to conform. Simply put, we don’t know if we belong.

Why does it matter? Because an authentic sense of belonging cultivates engagement, investment, and collective ownership. It promotes problem-solving and nurtures leadership.

Belonging creates better outcomes for everyone.

The cornerstone of belonging is communication… which is the biggest struggle in almost every organization.

That’s where we come in.

Using Compassionate Dialogueand our  RIR ProtocolTM, your team can learn to move through conflict together.

In our interactive sessions, participants will gain new skills that remove fear and build trust, safety, and compassion—and you’ll practice them together.

Your team will walk away better able to address interpersonal conflict, get to the root of disparities, and handle upsetting incidents with compassion and clarity.

You can create a culture of belonging. We’ll show you how.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training that keeps relationships front and center.

Your team’s Epoch Education will go beyond lectures on the concepts of DEI. Because we’re not here to call you out. We’re here to invite you forward. Our work is interactive, collaborative, and focused on open communication facilitated by our Compassionate DialogueⓇ framework. You’ll learn new skills that remove fear and build trust, safety, and compassion, and you’ll practice them together.

Your team will walk away better able to…

  • Productively engage in tough discussions on sensitive topics
  • Uncover hidden biases
  • Help everyone feel seen, safe, heard, and valued
  • Support clearer, more productive communication
  • Empower creative, compassionate problem solving
  • Create an environment where everyone can contribute their best
  • Make it easier for people to give and receive feedback
  • Assess how equity work is affecting the culture and climate of your organization

We’ll give you practical tools and frameworks that increase your team’s cultural competency and encourage them to embrace their full potential.

You can create a culture of belonging.
We’ll show you how.
