Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training
A. Stauch, NKCS Principal
"I thought they navigated difficult subjects well. We were asked to reflect, share and be honest about topics that can be uncomfortable. They gave data, were wise to get a “feel” for where our thinking was in surveys and then pushed our thinking. They did very well using questions to promote our thinking."
As a firm that specializes in business & not-for-profit management solutions, equity & inclusion training and community development, we have developed a few core values over the years. These values define us personally and professionally.
Servant Leadership: We see ourselves as servant leaders. We believe that to lead is to serve and to serve is to lead. Each relationship we develop with a client is a unique opportunity to serve, shape and achieve collective community goals.
Passion: We are passionate about helping our clients to operationalize their strategies into sustainable change.
Collaboration: The starting point of all client relationships begins with involving them in the process. Our goal is, always, to create a sense of ownership in our clients. Thus, we work collaboratively with our clients in order to achieve the change they desire.
Transparency: Genuine efforts to maintain transparency helps to build mutual trust between us and our clients. We strive for open and honest dialogue with those we are fortunate to serve.
Adaptable: Our solutions and services are applicable across a variety of organization-types as well as industries.
Client-focused: Although we employ tried-and-true methodologies and strategies, our services are tailored to the distinct needs of our clients. This customized approach ensures that the specific goals of each client are met.
