“Flexing” is the art of switching between leadership styles to more effectively work and engage people who are different from you. The workplace is growing increasingly multicultural, female and younger. As today’s leaders you must be able to navigate this diverse work environment. Yet, because cultural differences can be invisible or difficult to spot, we may not pick up on subtle nuances that we encounter daily. Internationally renowned executive coach and leadership strategist Jane Hyun will share practical advice for building trust and connecting with those who are different than us to create innovative solutions at work and achieve greater outcomes in life.
– Understand the Power Gap, the dimension you need to master;
– Flex your style by stretching how you work and communicate with others and learn how to leverage differences;
– Bridge the Gap with more effective communication and practical feedback tools; and
– Multiply the effect, by teaching these skills to others
