Navigating Your Career: Keys to Climbing to the Top

How to Leverage your Performance, Exposure, and Brand

For years in corporate America, working your way up the ladder meant following a process. The process typically meant working hard, keeping your head down, and hoping that those in charge would recognize and promote you. In today’s reality, the ladder has been replaced by a lattice, or better yet a maze. There is no longer a linear path from the classroom to the boardroom, leaving many young professionals unsure how to navigate this new reality.

Many diverse professionals already understand that “good is not enough” for advancement. You still must be better at your job than your majority peers to gain the same rewards and recognition. However, even exemplary performance alone is not enough to advance in your career.

In this session, Keith explains the importance of public perceptions, personal branding, and visibility, networking, mentoring, developing a long-term career plan, and identifying potential career killers. His tips are valuable not only to his targeted readers – diverse mid-level managers– but also to their majority counterparts.

With an eye on both the diverse and majority associates, Keith will share the:

  • You need a thorough understanding of your company’s culture to succeed.
  • How others perceive you has a tremendous influence on your career trajectory.
  • If you want higher-ups to consider you for promotions and choice assignments, you must be visible to them.
  • Consider your long-term career goals when you contemplate a promotion, lateral move, or a job with another company.
  • Be intellectually curious, and a continuous learner. Stay current to remain relevant.
  • Senior leaders need executive-level skills, such as superior communication abilities, problem-solving techniques, and the ability to execute.
  • Effort is appreciated, but you are measured on your results.
  • Mentors and sponsors are essential to help you advance in your career.

To encourage greater engagement, Keith recommends adding a Q&A session, or Fireside Chat conversation to help audiences further embrace these insights.

Jumpstarting Your DEI Initiatives: Diversity is NOT Enough

The Importance of Inclusion and Equity in Creating Systems Change.

Unlike many DEI practitioners who come from a Human Resources or a pure Diversity background, as an executive responsible for billion-dollar businesses, Keith has leveraged DEI to create inclusive cultures that deliver bottom-line results. Some examples include:

  • How impactful DEI efforts are helping hire and retain top talent and make your organization an “Employer of Choice”.
  • Why it’s important to embrace a “Systems Change” approach to DEI to deliver enterprise-wide, sustainable DEI results.
  • Looking at the intersectionality of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and unlocking the potential of each to move your organization forward.
  • How to change the hearts and minds of those who don’t see the reason or value of DEI.

As a DEI consultant and thought leader for over twenty years, Keith has been hired by numerous Fortune 500 companies and organizations to help them evaluate, re-imagine, and improve the outcomes of their DEI initiatives. In this presentation, Keith shares the missteps, challenges, and best practices from these engagements to provide insights into how your organization can jumpstart your DEI efforts.

After hearing Keith speak on this subject, audiences will learn how to create a culture of inclusion and make DEI an enterprise-wide effort. Keith will provide insight into:

  • “How We Got Here” (Why DEI is even necessary?).
  • DEI Myths vs. Reality.
  • Manager and Employee Disconnects and Responsibilities.
  • Best Practices for Successful DEI Implementation.

To encourage greater engagement, Keith recommends adding a Q&A session, or Fireside Chat conversation to help audiences further embrace these insights.
