The Rikleen Institute for Strategic Leadership consults with professional service firms, business organizations, and non-profit entities to help them develop a dynamic, inclusive, and strategically aligned workplace.  Consulting services include:

1. Strategies to Minimize the Impact of Unconscious Bias 

Unconscious bias affects everyone.  The Rikleen Institute for Strategic Leadership helps workplaces:


  • Understand the ways in which our unconscious reactions impact how individuals are judged and evaluated; and
  • Identify specific strategies to minimize the impact of unconscious bias on various organizational structures such as the assignment and performance evaluation processes.


2. Strengthening Multigenerational Teams

Workplaces today often feel challenged by both real and perceived differences in work and communication styles among Millennials, Gen Xers, and Baby Boomers.  As the author of the highly acclaimed You Raised Us, Now Work With Us: Millennials, Career Success and Building Strong Workplace Teams, Lauren Rikleen offers a research-based understanding of the work styles, needs, and interests of these generations, helping to separate myth from fact, bridge communication gaps, and strengthen multigenerational teams.  

3. A Confidential Internal Assessment of Existing Barriers to Success

Each workplace has its own unique culture and internal management framework that can substantially impact the career success of its professionals.  The Rikleen Institute for Strategic Leadership can undertake a confidential internal assessment to help identify unique conditions and perceived obstacles to achieving a workplace in which all professionals can thrive and succeed. 

4. Implementation of a Women’s Initiative

The development and implementation of a strategically crafted Women’s Initiative offers opportunities for internal collaboration, external networking, and skill-building.  A successful Women’s Initiative develops key metrics for the long-term retention and advancement of women, and implements a range of programming to help achieve those metrics.  With an in-depth understanding of the mutual gains derived when women work together, Lauren Stiller Rikleen’s unique approach combines the development and enhancement of a Women’s Initiative that fosters teamwork and a culture of mutual support with individual opportunities for building self-confidence and workplace navigation skills.
