Deloria Nelson Streete
I have had the opportunity to work for some world class organizations with amazing cultures. I have mentored and been mentored by dynamic individuals with a diversity of styles and skills. I have had the opportunity to empower, innovate and inspire both organizations and individuals. Authenticity, Courage and Energy have been my consistent brand for decades. The exposure, tools and support I have received have positioned me for this moment in time. Despite the achievements and accolades there is something churning inside me saying you can do more, empower more, impact more, help more. That inner voice coupled with the divisive times we currently live in, work in, walk in and try to breathe in made it imperative that I act now! Authentic Culture and Engagement Solutions, Incorporated (ACE Solutions, Inc.) was birthed out of my desire to maximize the work I have done with individual companies and people through the years and offer it to more organizations and more individuals. I know some people reading this would say: "You should focus on organizations or individuals. "You can’t successfully do both." I beg to differ because balancing both is what I have done successfully for years. Authentic, Courageous and Empowered Individuals are those priceless resources that help create and sustain Hyper- Engaged cultures where people can do their best work. I know I can be more authentic through ACE than I was as an employee. All organizations have blind spots. It seems somewhat impossible for those inside the organization to see the blind spots much less call them out and fix them. If you think this statement is untrue, look at all the great organizations with all the Inclusion missteps. These missteps did not happen because these are terrible organizations; they happened because either everyone agreed that it was a great idea, they did not have a mix of people at the table or no one had the courage to express that the ad, commercial, video or tweet may be offensive or have unintended consequences.
