Competition is no longer limited by geography in today's increasingly global world. Institutions seeking today's multicultural pool of potential customers must first learn to unleash the often untapped competitive weapon within their arsenal diverse talent pool. The inclusive mindset and actions needed to leverage this business advantage to increase profits is often mistakenly viewed as a project rather than a permanent cultural shift. The Phoenix Principles debunks this misconception by taking readers step-by-step through the transformation journey of a fictional company through the actions of one individual, whose name is Phoenix. Using five diversity principles, Phoenix guides a company through the process of inclusion creating a cohesive, team-oriented culture poised to connect with and capture the diverse markets that comprise today's global marketplace. The Phoenix Principles navigates the inherent challenges and ultimate rewards of undertaking a diversity/inclusion initiative and provides a framework for businesses to leverage the inevitable differences among individuals.

There are a lot of books out there on diversity, but this one is different. It is about the art and the science of diversity and inclusion initiatives. Through the eyes of the main character you can experience the first-hand struggles and successes of how an inclusion leadership initiative is positioned, carried out, nurtured, and measured for success. The 5 Phoenix Principles are also very easy to remember and apply for any type of leadership transformation.
