    December Sessions

    Inclusive Leadership Part 3
    Wednesday, December 7, 2022 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    Through engaging readings and interactive activities, participants will have the unique opportunity to closely examine their own social identities within systems of oppression and empowerment. Additionally, participants will explore the concepts of power and privilege in the context of leadership, and examine how their social identities bring both unearned privilege and unearned disadvantage. As participants develop a more sophisticated understanding of their own identities, they will have greater insight into how to work effectively with those from different backgrounds and how to address conflict within diverse groups. Participants will examine what it means to be culturally confident and begin to apply their cultural confidence in the workplace. Please note, this session is limited to leaders who currently manage others and who are also enrolled in the Leadership Certification Program (LCP).

    Resolving Workplace Conflict  [Virtual]
    Thursday, March 09, 2023 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    Today’s complex business dynamics and fierce global competition force organizations to continually ramp up productivity, improve quality, shorten cycle times, and reduce costs. An unfortunate, but natural, by-product is workplace conflict. Such pressures inevitably cause people with different personalities, communication styles, priorities, and values to have differences at one time or another. One of the course’s key messages is that leaders must help employees accept accountability for owning and resolving their workplace conflicts. Leaders learn to do this by leveraging two intervention tactics: coaching and, if the conflict remains unresolved, mediating. It’s also important that leaders are able to recognize the warning signs of conflict so that they can take the appropriate action. Please note, this session is limited to leaders who currently manage others and who are also enrolled in the Leadership Certification Program (LCP).

Leaders will learn how to conduct engagement and retention conversations and explore ways to recognize people, using no-cost everyday methods to create an engaging environment.
