open quote

It’s time to create a new narrative in our organizations that says it’s okay to be more than just one kind of human. That I see you and value you as a whole human being. That you belong.

that sustainable change and growth happens at the intersection of leadership, culture and belonging.

roots in the clouds images stacked

Unlike the hard-charging, data-driven, one-size-fits all change management approaches to culture design and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) work used by many traditional consulting firms, Roots in the Clouds focuses on helping leaders and organizations integrate diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging - or what we refer to as DEIB - into the fabric of organizational culture.

Our sustainable, healing-focused, and human-centered approach helps leaders and organizations:

  • Tap into common humanity
  • Build trust and psychological safety within their teams and the organization;
  • Bridge the gap between the individual and the larger collective with compassion and empathy;
  • Acknowledge and heal organizational trauma;
  • Balance the health and well-being of the staff with mission needs;
  • Create space for a diversity of perspectives to contribute to the success of the organization; and
  • Operationalize head, heart, and metrics working together for long-term, sustainable growth and mission impact.

quotation left There were so many thoughts in my head at the end of the 3-day course I took with Dimple. I’m definitely someone who needs time to process experiences like the mPEAK class, and I’ve spent the entire weekend doing nothing but thinking about intentions and takeaways. Dimple is a FANTASTIC instructor! Truly, I was in awe of her ability to lead the class through three long days of exercises and discussions with such ease. I’m glad I was in this class, and I enjoyed the presence of every student.
