Business leaders from Murad engage in highly impactful workshop – and leave equipped to become living models for the future of inclusive leadership

Los Angeles, Ca. (18 November 2019) – The Trium Group, a leading management consultancy that specializes in breakthrough business performance, today announced that it has partnered with a unique organization of formerly incarcerated prison gang leaders to work with Murad, the leading skincare brand rooted in clinically proven results, science-backed wellness, and cruelty-free products, on an innovative leadership development program to foster greater inclusion, respect, and higher performance across diverse teams.

Partnering with experienced facilitators from Inside Circle, a rehabilitation-focused organization born out of New Folsom Prison, the Trium team led the entire Murad management team through an extremely profound workshop that enabled them to explore their leadership in an authentic and unifying way. In this highly experiential program, people created a new vision for themselves and their teams, conducted deep personal exploration, and applied new tools and concepts that break down barriers to leadership effectiveness.

“We are at a point in our society that is characterized by radical change and highly charged differences around gender, race, culture, politics, and religion. Yet, this program, which brings executives into a place of self and group exploration alongside formerly incarcerated persons, enables people to see that we are more alike than we are different,” says Monica Chi, Managing Partner, The Trium Group. “We were honored to work with Murad on this workshop. They are a forward-thinking organization that is investing in their leaders in a progressive and inspiring way.”

Inside Circle was founded by an inmate of New Folsom Prison, who realized while behind bars, that the best way to create sustainable change was to look deeply within and challenge the assumptions he had long held to be true about himself and others. Inside Circle provided a safe haven within the walls of the prison for participants, who were often from rival gangs, to speak freely, explore their feelings and beliefs, and ultimately experience their own personal transformations. Once out, they have continued to share their message of inclusiveness. “I was grateful to be able to witness the Murad team embrace this work so openly and powerfully,” says Eldra Jackson, Inside Circle facilitator and mentor, TedTalk speaker, and former inmate at New Folsom Prison. “Once people get comfortable sharing who they are at their core and managing their judgments and reactivity, the opportunities for growth are limitless. The Murad team courageously proved without a shadow of a doubt how true this is, even in high-pressured corporate environments where achieving bottom-line results are central to success.”

“Working alongside the Trium team and former inmates was beyond humbling for our entire extended leadership team,” said Michelle Shigemasa, CEO of Murad. “We’ve never had such a raw opportunity to dig deep into our own truths, connect with each other, and harness this power to profoundly influence our leadership, and ultimately our company. This program will provide a lasting impact on our entire organization.”

“We founded Trium over 20 years ago with a mission of changing the world by changing the way business leaders think – and sometimes that means sharing radical perspectives,” said Andrew Blum, Founder and CEO, The Trium Group. “This partnership with Inside Circle is a revolutionary way for us to fulfill our mission. It powerfully demonstrates that what connects us to each other is much greater than what distinguishes us. When leaders start by looking within, enormous organizational transformation is possible.”
