Diversity and inclusion – Go beyond the transactional way of responding to people and become relational.
About this Event
2020 triggered a cascade of lessons for organizations to consider. The confluence of a global pandemic, social turmoil, and the stressors from a new workplace constellation created a need to go beyond operational/transactional ways of responding to people. Leaders needed to think longer term, listen like they perhaps never had before, and empathize. The need to continue these relational ways of being has never been greater as the “next normal” is being co-created.
