Navigating personal and professional relationships amidst the complexities of our global environment can be daunting – and culture gaps costly.
This challenge is exacerbated by increased uncertainty and threat of our current socio-political context, as well as heightened sensitivity around race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and other dimensions of difference.
What does it take to inspire and engage people – and teams – across language, culture, and other dimensions of difference?
What does it take to navigate challenging – and often unexpected – situations that involve misunderstanding, conflict, and/or unintended impact?
How do we repair trust and safety and rebuild connection when misunderstanding, judgment, and reactivity derail us from our shared goals and purpose?
THINKING ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH.
Whether you’re at the beginning, middle, or later stages of your career, being a confident and effective leader in today’s global context – and being perceived as one – requires more than cognitive knowledge and content expertise.
