2 2 NMA LeaderLab Scenario Amy is a recent graduate who is working in an office which is primarily composed of men. While in a meeting, she suggests a new way to record risk items, her area of expertise. The rest of the team acknowledges her input by saying thank you, but then goes on talking about other topics. After this happens repeatedly, Amy has decided this job is not for her, and begins looking for another assignment. You are the leader of the team and realize what has happened. You are responsible for bringing the team together and making sure each person is permitted to contribute. You feel Amy can contribute a lot to the organization, and realize that she was not included in the team meeting. Select a LEADER and OBSERVER, and allocate 15 minutes to determine what five specific actions should be taken by the team to get Amy back onboard and ensure consideration of her inputs. Make sure you have the teams consensus. Take 5 minutes and devote this time to generation of team LEADER and OBSERVER reports. Each team is allocated five minutes to present its reports. The LEADER first covers the team conclusions (3 minutes), and the OBSERVER then comments on the team process (2 minutes). There is a hard cutoff at five minutes. The final five minutes of the LeaderLab session are devoted to facilitator feedback on the team inputs, and associated LeaderLab lessons.

5 5 NMA LeaderLab Facilitator Hints Assign each team a number (Team 1-5), then go through the LL instructions and make sure all teams adhere to the designated time allocation for each LL section. After taking reports from each of the teams, use the following script to provide feedback. Thank each group for their participation and inputs; hopefully this exercise helped them formulate specific and useful improvement actions. While the actual improvement steps clearly are subjective, here are some questions you can use to characterize each report: 1.Are the group rationale and associated actions reasonable? 2.Do the actions adequately address the problem, and did the team define all five actions? 3.Are the actions likely to be effective in retaining Amy and ensuring consideration of her ideas? 4.Was the group process effective? Group reports with at least three YES ratings and no major adverse comments pass the exercise, and qualify as DIVERSITY CHAMPIONS. Conclude with LeaderLab lessons, and prizes to the winning groups.
