In today’s world, leaders at all levels are facing unprecedented challenges: a global pandemic, protests in the streets, racial discrimination, political tension and more. Yet, in an increasingly polarized society, effective communication has largely broken down with stay-at-home orders and social distancing restrictions limiting our ability to connect and address these difficult topics with our teams. But corporate leaders cannot afford to stay silent as these world issues impact both our professional and personal lives.
In this interactive webinar, Bonnie St. John, president of Blue Circle Leadership and Sanjay Advani, senior director of Intrepid Alliances, will discuss how Blue Circle Leadership uses the Intrepid platform to equip leaders and their teams with practical tools to have tough conversations without blaming, shaming or silencing different points of view.
They will explore:
- Bonnie’s story as a one-legged, African American Olympic ski racer, along with poignant moments from discussions she is having right now with people in the U.S. and around the world.
- Why being “politically correct” may not foster the collaboration we need during these challenging times.
- Six steps that transform uncomfortable situations into opportunities to build relationships.
