FREE CONSULTATION

I’m Jean Kantambu Latting, DrPH, LMSW-IPR — a leadership consultant with more than 25 years of consulting experience in business and nonprofit organizations. My practical, research-based solutions have helped hundreds lead rewarding lives at work and at home.

I created Pathfinders to focus on four key concepts:

1. Commitment

Seeing the light in yourself and being that person are two very different things. Pathfinders guides you in developing a mindset of perpetual learning and growth. That way, you can become a more effective, unifying agent of change.

2. Context

To co-create change, we must understand history — the well-known events as well as the undercurrents of what led us to present day circumstances. Pathfinders will help you embrace new perspectives, so you can take more informed actions and be the difference you want to see in the world.

3. Courage

If we want a world that works for everyone, we must be practical and brave. In Pathfinders, we help you find your center and rise up, so you can shift your story, level up, and achieve more.

4. Community

We celebrate both common ground and interesting differences as we continuously refine our skills, reexamine our beliefs, and work through disagreements. 

Together we can learn.
Together we can succeed.
Together we can change the world.

3. How is it different than any other program focused on diversity and inclusion or racial and social justice?
  • Our work is backed by empirical research, decades of consulting experience, and our own trial by fire experiences. We have studied it, lived it, and overcome adversities to incorporate it into our lives and ways of being.
  • We don’t focus on leadership, interpersonal skills, and racial and social justice as separate topics. Our work focuses on the intersection of these three elements.
  • We know that masterful leadership in this arena requires developing and honing over time. Our membership program offers a unit of four modules every 10-week period. A new unit begins every 10 weeks with fresh materials to deepen your learning and experiences. We give you plenty of time to refine your learning and gain mastery.
  • We are committed to your developing mastery to lead in this emotionally fraught and complex arena.
  • We view your progress as going through these stages on each separate topic:

  • We are committed to your developing mastery to lead in this emotionally fraught and complex arena.
  • We view your progress as going through these stages on each separate topic:
  • Awareness: you are aware of general concerns addressed by the topic and related skills
  • Understanding: you have a general understanding of what skills mastery looks like
  • Acceptance: you accept that mastering the skills will increase your effectiveness
  • Ability to apply: you are able to apply the skills successfully in at least one situation
  • Mastery: you are able to apply the skills consistently and in different contexts
  • We are multi-modal. We make every effort for you to learn however you learn. We use several modalities for your learning:
  • reading (or listening to podcasts)
  • self-tests on what you have learned
  • posting and reading others’ posts about how you are applying what you are learning
  • facilitated group discussion and sharing with others
4. What will I gain from this?

You will gain sustainable skills for leading change. Many leaders and advocates have only experienced leadership by people whose tactics and approaches they deplore. Our team at Leading Consciously is steeped in the technology of change and will help you learn how to change hearts and minds. What we share with you is sustainable. At the end of a complete unit of the program, you will be better able to

  • We don’t focus on leadership, interpersonal skills, and racial and social justice as separate topics. Our work focuses on the intersection of these three elements.
  • Define systemic and internal racism
  • Discuss the implications and results of racism
  • List steps in your own journey toward becoming a better antiracism advocate
  • Identify your own ambivalences and strengths in confronting racism and social injustice
  • Apply knowledge acquired in this program to develop and implement strategies to reduce racism and promote inclusion in your sphere of influence
5. I'm not racist, so why do I need this program?

This program is for people who want to reduce racism and promote social justice wherever they are. It doesn’t matter to us whether you start off with the malware known as racism instilled in you from childhood that you now seek to eliminate, or if you are among the few gifted with an upbringing where racism wasn’t churning away in the background. What matters is your desire to learn and to improve social justice and opportunities in the society in which you live, work, and love.

6. I'm Black, do I need to take this program?

See our response to question #5. If you want to promote antiracism, foster social justice, and take on a greater leadership role in the environment in which you live, work, and love, this program could benefit you.

7. How is the content delivered?

Once per module (every two weeks) we will select a blog post for you to read. It will feature at least one skill that we think is critical for members to learn and practice. The selected skills will enhance your ability to engage in social justice work. You will be asked to post your reflections about it online, respond to the reflections of others, and complete a practice exercise within that two-week module.

During that two-week period, you will participate in a guided discussion where you can bring reflections and questions. This forum provides you a chance to ask for and receive support from other members. Periodically, we will spotlight a member who has a complicated issue or has had a particular success.

You will learn by reflecting and doing, while we are with you every step of the way.

8. What if I have trouble reading?

Some modules use videos and others use written blog posts as the discussion material. For those who don’t like to read or have trouble reading, we offer a text to audio option.

9. How much time will this program require? I'm already busy.

We know you’re busy. That’s why we designed the program so you would spend only about three hours every two weeks. We allow plenty of soak time in between units so that you may deepen your confidence and skills development over time.

  • It will take about 15-30 minutes to read or watch the videos to learn that module’s skills.
  • Posting and responding to posts in our community forum give you the opportunity to share with other members.
  • Skills practice should be integrated with your everyday activities, so it will be done in real time.
  • Guided group discussions will last an hour and will feature Q&As from you and other members to learn about your experiences.

The net result is a rewarding experience.

10. I think this would be great for my organization. Should I get my boss to buy it or should I buy it?

Ideally, your manager will want to buy in for a whole work group. That way, people can support one another and foster the type of inclusive work environment they all yearn for.

Your manager will want to know if the investment will yield benefits back to the organization. We suggest asking them to look at our anniversary issue of the blog in which members of Pathfinders describe their experiences.

If they still have questions, ask them to contact us directly.

If your manager is not interested, then certainly find out if you can get sponsorship for your participation from your organization.  They will benefit from your skills development, so the justification for their support is there. If you don’t get that support, then the question is whether you want to invest in yourself.  We hope you do.

11. How do I get buy-in from my boss?

If they still have questions, ask them to contact us directly.

12. Can my friend join with me at a reduced price?

Groups of three or more will be eligible for a reduced price. Organizations and teams should ask for a quote.

13. I work with my community or nonprofit. How do I get this for my community?

We have deliberately kept the fees reduced so that individuals can participate. If the fee is prohibitive for your community, please contact us to discuss.

14. Is there any support for people in the program?

We do have a limited scholarship program. Please contact us to discuss your unique situation. We may be able to offer membership to you in exchange for your volunteering to help us with a myriad of tasks.

15. How do you measure results? What kind of results are you looking for?

Above all, we are looking for you to say that you feel better prepared to lead in multicultural settings.

As researchers, we will periodically assess your progress. We will ask you questions about the progress you made, the accomplishments you celebrate, the transformation you have experienced.

We also want you to tell us how we are doing. Feedback is essential to us. We will ask you to assess various aspects of the program, tell us what we are doing well and what we need to improve.

In Pathfinders, you will learn how to handle the inevitable self-doubt and what to do when people question your commitment or your actions. You will develop skills on how to handle it when one of your team members accuses another of microaggressions, or what to do when a culturally different team member seems to be set apart from the others.

We’ve created a course that makes it satisfying for you to learn how to produce favorable outcomes. We’ve spent years uncovering the science of why people form into tribes and what it takes to bring them together.
