Nextions has over 19 years in service and continues to be recognized as a leading consulting firm for innovative leadership and inclusion solutions in the workplace. We develop all our presentations, workshops, and key note addresses using cutting edge research that we have developed here at Nextions as well research that we have produced through other organizations providing you with a unique experience that is tailored to your organization’s particular needs. We have had the incredible privilege of working with professional service firms, municipal entities, law enforcement agencies, military agencies, corporations, educational institutions, not-for-profit organizations and political institutions representing a broad variety of industries and geographical areas.
We begin by discussing your goals and the specific outcome that you would like to achieve in order to structure each project to deliver the impact you desire. Specifically, our presentations focus on increasing awareness and insights into a wide variety of topics (see below) and can be delivered in person or digitally via webinar and videos. Our workshops are more in-depth explorations of the topics with carefully structured group dialogues and role-play activities, individual reflections, and individual and collective action planning. We also design and deliver Train-the-Trainer workshops that allow you to increase your internal expertise in a particular area and deliver presentations and/or workshops internally with our guidance. Our primary objective is to use a combination of research, expertise and insights to help you achieve your goals in a way that best utilizes your resources.
The areas of differences covered in our presentations and workshops include: Racial/Ethnic Differences, Gender Differences, Generational Differences, Religious Differences, Sexual Orientation/Identity/Expression Differences, Differences in Physical Abilities, Cognitive Style Differences, and Cultural Differences.
