Keynote Presentation

Leading with Dignity: The Surprising Truth about Engaging Culturally Diverse Stakeholders

The presentation will introduce a framework for understanding cultural differences based on three distinctive ways in which culture shapes our sense of dignity and the implications for engaging culturally diverse teams and stakeholders. The framework explains why the most consistent underlying source of conflict, in culturally diverse teams, is linked to perceived “dignity violations” and the role dignity plays in shaping how individuals from different cultures approach delegating, making decisions, reaching agreements, giving feedback, and resolving conflict.
You will gain fresh insights to help you examine your culturally learned assumptions about dignity and an understanding of the essential skills needed to adapt your communication and leadership styles to the needs and demands of cross-cultural environments.

Educational Presentation

Neurodiversity: How Culture Shapes the Brain and Implications for Leading Across Cultures

The more we learn about the brain, the more validation science is giving that 'one-size-fits-all' approach to leadership is no longer sufficient to effectively engage an increasingly diverse, multicultural, and international array of business stakeholders. More than ever before, the capacity to manage and leverage cultural differences is becoming an increasingly important skill for individuals at all levels of the organization and especially at the managerial and senior leadership level. The presentation will provide an understanding of the essential findings from the growing body of research in the fields of cultural neuroscience demonstrating the substantial degree to which culture shapes how the brain processes social experience in the context of collaboration. The aim is to move participants beyond the simple dos and don’ts of cultural awareness to a more in-depth understanding of cultural differences and their implications for leading across cultures.
