Session: Growth vs. Correction: How To Give Feedback That Fuels Colleagues
For almost 30 years, Doug Harris, Chief Executive Officer of The Kaleidoscope Group, has impacted the American workplace with his work in Diversity & Inclusion (D&I). Powerfully balancing the practical and the philosophical, Doug has partnered with countless clients to create customized strategies that address the specific diversity needs of each business and their unique company culture, working closely with leaders and executives to champion D&I, developing commitment and enthusiasm across all employee groups. His energy and passion for the work have been described as “contagious” and few have walked away with anything less than an unforgettable experience.
“To free the human potential.” That, succinctly put, is what Doug has done for thousands upon thousands of people. His work, combining compassion and a keen business sense, has had an impact across generations, creating a legacy that extends around the globe. Through the development and implementation of strategic consulting solutions he has challenged global corporations (e.g. Caterpillar, Duracell, and Owens Corning), schools (e.g. The Wharton School, Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management), and countless nonprofit social and government agencies to free the human potential of their leadership, staff, customers, and clients. Through his singular combination of humor and “realness” he has moved rapt audiences to free the human potential one person at a time, one organization at a time. Through his engaging style he has served as a resource to the media, encouraging listeners and readers to free their own human potential. Freeing the human potential is not just what Doug Harris does; it is who he is.
