Jul 02, 2020 (AB Digital via COMTEX) — Dr. Amanda Felkey, a behavioral economist and inclusion expert, and ProHabits, a Learning & Development software company, are announcing the launch of The Inclusion Habit: an evidence-based learning solution helping workplaces become more inclusive. To ensure that all organizations have access to the best inclusion tools, they are offering The Inclusion Habit free to all.
Adam Fridman, Founder and CEO of ProHabits, commenting on the pressing need for inclusion in the workplace stated: “We’re in a turbulent time for businesses. As injustices are coming to light in an unprecedented way, organizations are scrambling to ensure that they’re part of the solution — not the problem.”
Why are negative habits easier to build. and how can we overcome them? Is it possible to flip negative habits on their head, and use that energy to build positive ones?
Our guest in this episode is Adam Fridman, as a seasoned entrepreneur, startup veteran, and founder of Mabbly, a digital marketing agency whose motto is “Inspired by Why, Driven by Data.” Adam helps people pursue a common purpose with unified drive. He’s also the co-author of The Science of Story and the Founder of ProHabits — a positive, psychology-based application that links professional habits to personal and organizational goals.
Dividend Restaurant Group—the owner of Macaroni Grill and Sullivan’s Steakhouse—could add another brand to its ranks before the end of 2020’s first quarter. If the deal comes to pass, the new acquisition would become the largest brand in the group’s portfolio.
“This is a meaningful brand, it will be the largest part of our portfolio if we get it done, and a lot of its characteristics are exactly in line with Sullivan’s and Macaroni Grill,” Dividend’s CEO and president Nishant Machado says.
This evidence-based solution transfers inclusion work to the individual, and focuses on changing behaviors and habits. The program is designed to help individuals be proactive in making their behavior more inclusive through six habit-building phases—embracing that inclusion matters, understanding biases and their sources, dispersing the negativity associated with unconscious biases, practicing thinking more deliberately, reprogramming incorrect intuitions about others, and becoming more empathetic. It uses small daily activities designed to mitigate biases and microaggressions, while creating new habits of understanding, empathy, and inclusion.

We see trending tweets about what CEOs are doing almost constantly, whether they’re committing fraud or donating multimillions of dollars to help those in need.
