FACILITATION CASE STUDY:
BUILDING AN ADEPT EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUP
After the murder of George Floyd in 2020, employee resource groups (ERGs) became a critical part of the global conversation around diversity, equity and inclusion. ERGs are meant to foster more inclusion and drive social impact; however, the lack of resources and support of ERG leaders threatens to undermine outcomes.
Understanding that people are the key to unlocking business success, Trane Technologies embarked on a plan to invest in the professional development of their ERG leaders. Each leader was given the ADEPT-15® — a scientifically based assessment to accurately uncover the unique aspects of an individual’s personality and develop key talent.
Lisa Medley Executive Coaching (LMEC) was hired to help these leaders understand their results, equipping them with the ability to leverage their natural strengths, better understand their work styles and behaviors, and enhance team working dynamics. After reviewing the results from the assessments, LMEC distilled the research, designed, and facilitated a half-day workshop.
These ERG leaders were able to: understand how different personality traits showed up at work; leverage their differences to balance workloads; foster relationships across ERG groups, and learn ways to grow trust.
