Although he grew up with privilege and an unconscious sense that he was better than others, a near-death experience caused Lewis Brown Griggs to see things differently. While hovering between life and death, he was "told" that he needed to come back and to "do his work." This meant overcoming what he saw as his principal weakness: learning to bridge the gaps between himself and other people. He's been helping others do this through diversity and inclusion work for more than 25 years.
Since surviving his near-death experience, Griggs has worked with companies all over the world, written three books and a host of multimedia projects, and been formally recognized as a "legend of diversity" from the International Society of Diversity and Inclusion Professionals.
But he's more that simply a diversity trainer and entrepreneur. He's also is a co-active leadership coach, a relationship coach and a facilitator of Spiritual Consciousness gained form Near Death Experiences and Recovery.
In this podcast, Griggs talks about his near-death experiences and how they motivated him to cross-cultural work, how the diversity movement has evolved in the past 25 years, and the importance of coming to terms with death for both valuing diversity and growing spiritually.
