The Push and Pull of Culture
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CDT)
San Antonio, TX
How do you recognize and appreciate multiple, complex cultures within your organization? Is there a strategy, or do you just hope it magically happens?
David Perryman, noted author, seasoned communications practioner and current researcher on culture and communication will guide us through a dialogue on how to communicate so we relate, understand and learn from each other for greater success. Come discuss how you can lead a communication effort that creates a culture that celebrates and ultimately transcends multiculturalism in your organization.
This is probably you and your colleagues:
- You bring your race, ethnicity and point of geographic origin with you wherever you go; it’s part of your culture.
- We share a workplace with three, even four or five, generations with different ways we each see the world and act in it.
How might we transcend these cultures? How can we create and communicate attributes and behaviors that take those diversity factors into account to create stronger teams and successful organizations?
