Leadership Development

Why Fish?

We use fish imagery to remind us that our own culture can be hard to notice until we get out of our comfort zone and experience a different one.  A fish doesn’t know it lives in water until it experiences air for the first time.  Organizational culture is similar; we don’t realize our own cultural norms until we experience a different culture that makes what was once hidden from view immediately recognizable.

TESTIMONIAL

What Our Clients Said

"Prior to joining the educational institution at which I am currently employed, DEI work was in its nascent stages. Aisha and her team were integral in creating a strategy for the school community that would be sustainable and effective. With the heightened and urgent need for diversity, equity, inclusion and justice work in institutions across the nation, our school community knew that we would need to partner with field experts in order to be successful. I have certainly heard of the positive impact and strides made before my arrival and since joining as the school's lead DEI practitioner, I have been witness to this impact as well. The ways in which Aisha's work is community-driven and data-informed has proven to be invaluable. Her processes have always been thoughtful, intentional and grounded in current and best practices. Additionally, Aisha took the time needed to listen to and learn from our community in order to create and drive strategy that best fit our needs. I can truly say that I would not have been able to make as much progress in my role as I have without Aisha's guidance, coaching and expertise. Not only have her contributions and presence been valuable to me, but also to members of the Senior Administrative Team as well as faculty and staff across divisions."
