Growing the Elephant takes a new and different approach to 'privilege' - the elephant in the room - as earned and unearned advantage. This book introduces contemplative practices that meet readers wherever they are to recognize and work with unearned advantage and grow opportunities for earned advantage. Endorsed by CEOs, DEI and mindfulness experts, and Dave Ulrich, Growing the Elephant provides a new way to engage in this most difficult topic - whoever you are, wherever you're from.
