New episode of Best Seller TV features author Deanna Singh discussing how to create impactful change within the organization when people are able to be their true selves
New York, NY, May 24, 2022 — Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV, is announcing a new episode featuring Deanna Singh, author of “Actions Speak Louder: A Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming an Inclusive Workplace.”
Singh is known as a Chief Change Agent which reflects her belief that everyone has the ability to – not just make change, but create positive change. Singh believes that her “purpose is to shift power to marginalized communities” and her books are a reflection of the work she does and the different ways in which she’s accomplished that. She adds, that the idea that if we’re doing things that allow for more people to show up, and do so fully, we can all create and build things to make the world a better place.
Singh also recalls that she wrote the book due in part to the massive response she received about wanting to build an inclusive workplace but did not feel like they knew how to accomplish that. The book is more than a roadmap, it’s a step-by-step guide to create and make a more inclusive workplace where everyone can show up as their whole, and true, selves.
There was an old adage that when people came to work, they left their families, communities, and other components of their social identity behind. However, Singh argues, the shift that has taken place in today’s work environment is not brand new. She says that people should be able to show up for work as their true selves not having to wear a mask in order to conform to preconceived norms to be successful.
For decades we have been taught that difficult topics such as race, religion, sexual orientation and others are considered “taboo” topics. While organizations will employ tactics to become more inclusive, there has to be a personal growth component added to the mix as well. Singh explains that one thing we have to learn is to be comfortable with understanding the baggage we all bring into the conversation. This can be accomplished by reflecting on who we are because without that foundation, it’s very easy for progress to fall apart.
To write this book, Singh brought together history, sociology, and theoretical parts – all blended into practical and actionable steps, ready to be immediately implemented to today’s changing landscape. There are also plenty of personal anecdotes that proved crucial to weaving the narrative and making it all come together.
Singh also cautions that there has to be a genuine approach to becoming more inclusive, otherwise, no progress will be made. She adds, “DEI in the charity bucket is not sustainable.”
All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.
Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.
“There’s no question that the world we grew up in has changed and it’s crucial to our success that we adapt to become more inclusive of people that 30 years ago were deeply marginalized,” Hayzlett said. “Deanna’s book provides real-life examples about how we, as business leaders, can help change the culture of our organizations and ensure we’re doing everything in our power to give everyone a voice and be part of the conversation. Her DEI expertise is second to none and I think everyone should take a moment out of their busy lives and take a listen.”
