Description

‘An excellent, example-rich and immediately practical book which will no doubt stay close to hand and dog-eared with use for years to come.’ Dr Pippa Grange Psychologist and Author of Fear Less

Talk to anyone about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and it sparks a whole range of emotions. Why? Because DEI, at its very core, is about values and beliefs, and it’s about change. So it is no surprise then, that despite putting in place a DEI strategy and multiple initiatives, so many organizations get stuck.

Beyond Discomfort reveals a new model of inclusive leadership, which describes four belief systems and associated emotional responses to DEI.

Discover:

  • real life stories and expert insights to deepen your understanding of why DEI is so knotty and complex;
  • self-understanding and new perspectives to better connect with your learned leadership values and beliefs;
  • reflective questions, practical tools and activities to help develop your inclusive practice.

Nadia Nagamootoo is a Chartered Psychologist, accredited coach, MBA and Founder of Avenir, a DEI consultancy. Through her multiple keynotes and popular podcast show, Why Care?, Nadia has become a profound thought leader in DEI, guiding organizations on an accelerated path to creating inclusion and belonging.

Advance Praise

One of the few books I have read on diversity, inclusion and equality which made me stop and reflect on what it takes to be a truly inclusive leader. Beyond Discomfort challenged some of my own belief systems or “Way of Being”, held sincerely and in good faith, with thought-provoking, real life examples viewed through a different lens. I would recommend this book to any leader who is serious about DEI and initiating real change in both their own mindsets and the culture of their business. - Ben Allen, Chief Executive Officer, Mark Allen Group

Nadia’s approach to the subject of inclusion is incredibly thought-provoking, challenging us to notice how our learned values and beliefs can inform how we live and lead. The “Way of Being” provides an accessible, and importantly, non- judgemental continuum with which to recognise where we and others may be on this journey. I highly recommend Beyond Discomfort, not only for leaders in business and the People profession, but for anyone who is curious and seeking to understand how to engender greater inclusion. - Greg Bloomer, People Director, Centrica
