Leading Change Through Collective Courage with Daniel Oppong
By Kelly Barner | January 25, 2023
Each person has a responsibility to make sure that all of their small choices add up to the total impact they want to have – on others and on the world. If we can make those choices in partnership with individuals and organizations that share our vision and values, that impact will be magnified significantly. “How we spend our days is how we spend our lives,” as this episode’s guest said during his interview.
In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Daniel Oppong. Daniel is the founder of The Courage Collective, a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (or DEI) consulting and training company founded in 2020. Daniel has multiple founder credits to his name… a journey that I can assure you requires plenty of courage itself.
In this conversation, Daniel applies his perspective as an entrepreneur, trainer, and coach to today’s diversity efforts:
- The type of needs he sees from business leaders and organizations in the area of DEI
- How the listening and communication skills of today’s professionals stack up against the challenges they face
- What qualifies as a meaningful difference in supplier diversity programs
