Overview: Join us to learn three ways to connect effectively across cultures in divisive times. Our increasingly interconnected, digitized, and globalized world presents immense opportunities and unique challenges. Modern businesses and schools interact with individuals and organizations from a diverse range of cultural and national backgrounds—increasing the likelihood for miscommunication, errors in strategy, and unintended consequences in the process.
This has also spilled into our daily lives and the way we consume information today. Understanding how to navigate these and other pitfalls requires adaptability, nuanced cross-cultural communication, and effective conflict resolution.
Tayo will provide the audience with a skills-based, actionable plan that transforms them into agents of inclusiveness, connection, and mutual understanding.
