Chris Altizer and Gloria Johnson-Cusack’s book, Growing the Elephant is reviewed in The Globe and Mail.
Privilege is a useful concept. It forces us to examine ourselves and our actions. If humility leads to better leadership, as Jim Collins’ research in Good to Great suggests, acknowledging our privilege can help us be better leaders. But privilege has unfortunately become inflammatory in workplace discussions on diversity.

‘The advantages of leveraging diversity through inclusion have been widely recognized, if not often successfully reaped, for decades. Why is it that now we are all so focus on this topic. Amazingly there are still a lot of people who choose to ignore this, while there are ways to ensure you are not seen as disrespectful. Chris Altizer and Gloria Johnson-Cusack not only provide explanation to recognize diversity but also use it through true life examples.’

‘The main blocker to building a better world of work is the inequity of opportunity for people to contribute or earn advantage, and the inability and unwillingness of many to understand that reality.’
Chris Altizer, co-author of Growing the Elephant with Gloria Johnson-Cusack, is interviewed by Tim Reitsma for People Managing People for their series on how we can collectively build better workplaces.
We’re passionate about the world of work, and how we can make it better. To help satisfy our curiosity, we’ve launched an interview series where we pick the brains of experienced leaders, business owners, managers, and individual contributors to get their thoughts on how we can collectively build better workplaces.
‘Employee resilience has been a flaming-hot topic with plenty of new ideas. The problem with most is the notion that employees can do it themselves, but, leaders contribute to workplace resilience when they lead with their own participation. From their own resilience, leaders can more effectively remove barriers to employee performance, improve workplace culture, and slow the great resignation.’
Chris Altizer and Gloria Johnson-Cusack authors of Growing the Elephant have an article on organizational resilience published in HR Morning .
The last two years were full of HR lessons – and this could be the most important: Resilience makes a difference. It likely helped you trudge through volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. And now, resilience – the ability to cope with adversity and adapt to challenges and change – is a critical business strategy.
