Thank you for your guidance. You assisted Domino’s Pizza in the development of an initiative that did not become obsolete in a year or two after its debut. This approach has been very effective in helping to keep our team members focused on diversity, in the broadest sense, and not just on the race and gender issues.

Jim Betts
Sr. Director of Diversity
Domino’s Pizza

Everyone--and I mean everyone had rave reviews of your presentation. Thanks!

Your remarks were not only relative to our work within an educational institution, but also to our everyday personal lives. You are to be commended for your presentation style and engaging the audience with your message.

Lenora's Learner Oriented Workshops:

The Diversity Advantage: Turning Barriers into Bridges

This highly interactive program provides an opportunity for participants to discover their own level of knowledge and understanding of people who are different. By exploring the biases of our society's "isms", such as racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, and sizeism, as well as homophobia and other prejudices that impede productivity in the workplace, participants of this program will be better equipped to improve the cultural competencies that enhance performance, when they return to their organization.

Capturing Today’s Multicultural Market

Are your sales representatives losing opportunities to close sales because they are pre-judging the client or customer? Are they only prospecting and selling to people who are "just like them?" If so, this program is for them. Included are customized exercises, and the Sales Action Planner to help participants identify their own biases, and how those perceptions kill sales. This program is for people who know the basic steps of selling, and are looking for ways to increase sales results through effective relationship-building techniques with a diverse market.

From Adversaries to Allies: Gender Communication in the Workplace

This fun presentation will help you learn how to improve your communication with the opposite gender. You will learn to say what you mean, and get what you want, while recognizing and respecting differences. This insightful session will help both men and women learn how to improve their communication with the opposite gender.
A Lenora Billings-Harris Special Feature:

Unity within Diversity: The OZ Perspective

“It is not often that I see a speaker receive a standing ovation after their presentation. In your case, it was genuinely deserved.”

Betty Doran
Vice President
American Heart Association

Lenora uses the characters of the Wizard of Oz as a metaphor to help you understand how you can use your brain, heart and courage to make a real difference in today’s multi-cultural world. This fun, yet thought-provoking message will inspire you to embrace the gifts you have and to value the gifts of others to increase your organization’s options for success. By realizing the power to make a difference is within each individual, you will discover ways to go beyond stereotypes and bias to create and sustain an environment that supports high productivity while celebrating differences. Lenora uses life-size stand ups of the characters and music from The Wizard of Oz and The Wiz to create an entertaining learning environment.
