There are many great examples of how Everyone A Leader (EAL) stands apart from traditional leadership curricula. It doesn’t simply tell you what it takes to be an effective leader, it shows you how to be an effective leader. It provides you with the tools you need to turn your ideas into action. It demonstrates the necessity of valuing all the voices that make up an organization–from clerical staff to CEOs.
But as an African-American woman who has navigated workplaces where Black voices are too often silenced, I believe that EAL’s greatest attribute is something even more powerful: Its ability to create a culture of belonging, and, in the process, help people heal.
