DEI Workshop: Cultural Diversity - The Power of Adaptability

Thursday, March 18, 2021 (9:00 AM - 10:15 AM) (EDT)


Cultural Diversity: The Power of Adaptability 

Adaptability - is it on your list of core leadership competencies? For many companies it’s in the top 5. But what does it really mean? According to Korn Ferry, it means having flexibility in handling change, being able to juggle multiple demands, and adapting to new situations with fresh ideas or innovative approaches. Yet, how willing are we to adapt when it comes to our core cultural values? How much should we adapt without losing ourselves? What happens when we adapt too far or don’t adapt enough?

In this session, we will examine our personal and organizational cultural values and how living into our core values can unintentionally exclude one or more cultural groups. We will discuss how we can use the power of adaptability and cultural intelligence to create high performing teams rather than like-minded ones.

Key Takeaways: 

- Why people fail to adapt and an unfortunate consequence … burnout(!)

- 3 cultural values that have a powerful impact on the culture of our workplace and teams

- 3 strategies for effectively adapting across cultures to maximize performance

This is an interactive session. Be prepared to have your video cameras on and to share your organization’s core values. See you there!
