I am Jocelyn Giangrande and I help companies build high performing organizations through leadership development and diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) cultures.
Over the last 25 years I worked with over 100 organizations across various industries. What I learned is that great companies have exceptional leadership and a culture of DEI. I can help you achieve both.
You cannot get there without investing in your leaders
It takes exceptional leadership skills, awareness, and sensitivity to build cultures that attract and retain talent. Therefore, you must select the right leaders, invest in their development, and hold them accountable to your values. That is what I can help you do.
Through my leadership development programs, workshops and coaching, I equip leaders with skills to be inclusive, flexible, and communicate effectively.
Build the right culture and they will come and stay
It also takes an environment where your talent feels embraced, valued, and respected to build an exceptional organization. An environment that promotes inclusion where everyone has a voice, an opportunity to contribute and perform at their best is what sets you apart. That takes a culture of DEI.
Building a DEI culture is essential and taking a strategic and systemic approach is critical. That is what I may also help you achieve. Through my strategic consultations, inclusive leadership coaching and visioning, together we can build the culture you desire and need for today and tomorrow.
This is my passion
It may sound cliché to say I found my passion; however, it is true. I love what I do, and nothing is more satisfying than having a role in organizational success. I believe in playing to your strengths, creating an environment where ideas are exchanged, and diverse perspectives are valued. This is what sets the great apart from the rest.
I hope to help you and your organization be all it can be. And more!

DEI LEADERSHIP WORKSHOPS
Interactive trainings such as DEI for 21st Century Leadership, If You’re Human, You’re Biased, and Cross-Cultural Collaboration & Communication earn top-box ratings.
Jocelyn presented a webinar on Diversity & Inclusion and Implicit Bias. She delivered everything expected and more, she effectively engaged the audience at a level I haven’t seen before. After the webinar I received many emails appreciating this opportunity. Here are some examples: “Jocelyn made me feel so positive about a topic, and in a time that it is often so negative. I could have listened to her for the rest of the day.”

Over the last 25 years I earned the reputation of having the courage to challenge leaders and to ask the right questions. As your inclusive coach, I will live up to that reputation.
Turning Good Leaders into Great Leaders in DEI
THE TIME IS NOW FOR LEADERS TO GET DEI RIGHT
Today, communities expect more from top leaders. As your inclusive coach, I can guide you to meet that expectation.
WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER INCLUSIVE COACHING
Leading a diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) organization can be challenging. As humans we fall into comfort zones, habits and surround ourselves with like-minded individuals. Even if you have diversity around you, your actions often indirectly create homogeneous cultures.
Being an inclusive leader means you create an environment where diverse talent excels. That requires specific skills, competencies and abilities often overlooked. An inclusive coach can help bring out those qualities.
HOW I MAY GUIDE YOU
It is critical to obtain objective guidance while you embark on the DEI journey. Having a confidant to assist in demonstrating your DEI commitments while leveraging inclusive leadership skills enhances credibility. Over the years I have been successful in guiding executive leaders to:
- Leverage leadership strengths to demonstrate inclusion
- Identify blind spots, and areas for enhanced awareness
- Sort through DEI questions and opportunities.
OTHER BENEFITS OF INCLUSIVE COACHING
Coaching may also provide tools, approaches, and skills to ensure your communication, listening, and observation skills are sharpened to support a DEI culture. Inclusive leaders also build confidence in key stakeholders such as executive boards, internal and external communities as well as direct reports.
It would be an honor to guide you on this journey. You do not have to do it alone. Let us build together.
Jocelyn has a presence and approach that makes it safe to have a conversation in solving problems, generating ideas. She maintains poise and grace in her relationships. She has made quite a positive impact through her focused work and contribution.
