Our workforce continues to become more diverse, representing individuals from many backgrounds and experiences. We are able to best leverage the value of this diversity when we role model inclusive behaviors and foster a workplace climate that encourages all employees to bring their whole best selves to work every day. In turn, this provides employees with the positive workplace experience that they deserve. This session will introduce several relevant models of leadership, and the concept of cultural intelligence, as context for developing your own personal leadership approach.
As leaders, we don’t often take time for self-reflection and assessment. Participating in this session will provide a framework for:
- Recognizing the breadth of diversity and the opportunities & challenges it presents;
- Understanding your leadership tendencies;
- Exploring opportunities to develop your leadership capabilities.
