Mosaic Consulting Project

MOSAIC CONSULTING PROJECT

Fun • Dynamic • Engaging • Transformative

These may not be words that you would normally associate with workplace trainings, yet that is exactly how participants describe the Mosaic Consulting Project’s diversity and inclusion, team building, and effective communication programs.

In a Mosaic Consulting Project training you will:

  • expand your capacity to work across lines of difference.
  • cultivate more collaborative and inclusive teams.
  • increase employee engagement.

Using lively, thought-provoking activities and techniques, we design the optimal program for your group. You will leave each training with a set of tools and resources to meet challenges specific to your organization.

About Us

The Mosaic Consulting Project (MCP) is a program of The Mosaic Project, a 501(c)(3) non­profit organization which works toward a peace­ful future by unit­ing chil­dren of diverse back­grounds, pro­vid­ing them with essen­tial com­mu­nity build­ing skills, and empow­er­ing them to become peace­mak­ers.

Our prin­ci­pal pro­gram is our unique Outdoor School which brings together 4th and 5th grade classes from schools that dif­fer markedly in socioe­co­nomic, racial, and eth­nic make-up. Through our dynamic evidence-based, expe­ri­en­tial social-emotional learn­ing (SEL) cur­ricu­lum, our stu­dents build their capac­ity for empa­thy and resilience. Through MCP, we bring the imag­i­na­tion, won­der, and fun of our Outdoor School into your work­place.

With the creation of MCP, we have established a unique community building model. As organizations invest in their employees, they also invest in their community. Net proceeds from MCP directly fund The Mosaic Project’s youth programs, furthering our mission to work towards a more peaceful future.

Ultimately, MCP enables us to expand our impact as we reach entire communities through schools, community-based organizations, as well as the workplace.

Together, we cre­ate micro­cosms of the just, diverse, inclusive world we envi­sion, demon­strate that peace is pos­si­ble, and inspire action.

Trainings

Our trainings involve dynamic, fun facilitation strategies and experiential activities as well as provide concrete tools. Trainings range from two hours to two days in length.  We work with corporations, community-based organizations, and educational institutions and will collaborate with you to design a professional development training plan that meets your specific needs and goals.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our diversity and inclusion workshops support organizations that seek to recognize and utilize the diversity in their community as an asset and tactical, strategic advantage in the marketplace, while developing meaningful and effective ways of understanding, listening to, and responding to challenges around differences. We help organizations put their values to work and to better support their members in building a strong and vibrant community fabric.

Outcomes

Participants will:
  • Practice being proactive rather than reactive in communicating across difference.
  • Investigate and reflect on assumptions about differences and how they impact decisions in the workplace.
  • Embrace diversity as a tactical advantage in the marketplace.
  • Explore how to create an inclusive culture in their workplace, where all staff feel more included and appreciated.
  • Move toward a more engaged, cohesive, and effective workforce.

Effective Communication & Conflict Resolution

These trainings develop ways of understanding, listening to, and responding to conflicts and challenges, encourage the use of assertive communication techniques, and emphasize the importance of modeling effective conflict resolution. The trainings combine The Mosaic Project’s step-by-step conflict mediation process with theories of conflict transformation to emphasize the opportunities for the personal and institutional growth that conflicts can provide.

Outcomes

Participants will:
  • Practice proactive communication skills that support a healthy, productive work environment.
  • Explore assertiveness in contrast to passiveness, aggressiveness, and passive aggressiveness.
  • Examine models for: 
    • giving and receiving feedback.
    • stopping workplace gossip.
    • addressing, managing, and resolving conflicts.

Team Building

Our team building workshops provide tangible steps toward cultivating strong, unified teams and incorporating individuals’ skills toward common goals.

Outcomes

Participants will:
  • Explore existing team dynamics and behaviors.
  • Build trust, empathy, and appreciation.
  • Cultivate a deeper sense of shared purpose and vision as a team.
  • Identify tangible steps toward realizing that shared vision.
  • Learn to leverage individual skills and experiences to serve the team.
  • Have fun!
