As COVID-19 spread across the globe, I realized two things. 1. People around the world could use some help with mindset change. 2. As face to face workshops were put on hold, the physical B❒X program (innogreat.com/box) would not be a viable method to offer that help.
Inspired by all the quick hacks doctors and companies made to provide care to thousands of sick and dying, I decided to hack my own thinking to develop a course that would transform a piece of paper and a pencil into a model of your current mindset, and then a process to improve that mindset to provide short term safety and long term success.
As I started delivering these sessions participants asked if I could train them on the methodology. I created an online self-paced train the trainer and blended that with trainees attending sessions and weekly group coaching calls.

Inclusion is no longer a concept relegated to HR training or to a D&I committee. It is a core competency for every one of us, in every context, be it professional or personal. For us, diversity is a given, while inclusion is a choice, and it’s this choice that we will explore using the concept of the Box. We will explore some of the key nuances of inclusion through a pair of 90-minute sessions designed to open your mind, enhance empathy and generate positive change.
While each session is a complete program, we suggest attending both for full benefit.
Sessions can be taken in any order.
Driving Inclusion from the Outside In
2 sessions per day on 9th and 23rd September
How your environment, your appearance, and your context impact your inner thinking. How to consciously adjust your thinking to allow new perspectives in, and how to put more of the true authentic self out to others. Objectives:
Reflect on the behaviours that we’re projecting to the world and how it represents us (and how it doesn’t).
Understand the difference between core and flexible values and what we can do with both these elements in order to drive more inclusion.
Discover how you can “open” up your box to be more of your authentic self.
NOTE: This session is co-Designed by Shilpa Subramaniam and Jimbo Clark, with Jimbo facilitating this session, and Shilpa producing.
How we protect and defend our thoughts and actions, learning how to take responsibility for the way our inner thinking impacts others, and building more empathetic connection from my inner thinking to the inner thinking of others.
Deepen awareness of your own specific filters and those of others.
Explore the tug of war between our positive intention and the negative impact generated in others.
Building empathic power to learn from and connect to others.

There was such a positive outpouring of appreciation for Mya’s session on empathy in late August (and oh so much disappointment from those who missed it) that we just had to squeeze in another session in September. Don’t miss this powerful session.
