B. Working with Senior Leaders and Intercultural Competency

March 15, 2019

Sometimes working with senior leaders can be frustrating and difficult due to their tendency to minimize understanding and the importance of cultural competency in organizations. Organizational goals and priorities make it very difficult to have access and spend time with leaders on these important discussions. What can change this? A strong case for culture and resilience. Sustainable growth and improvement is a deliberate strategy of which culture is the primary ingredient in achieving organizational effectiveness. This workshop will spend the day discussing and exploring the power of intercultural competency in the C-suite.
