Leading Across Differences
The dynamics of diverse groups present an interesting challenge for organizations. How do you teach people of different nationalities, religions, races, and genders to work effectively together? Developed by a research team that includes The Center for Creative Leadership faculty, Leading Across Differences is a training package that offers new ways of thinking about leadership challenges, providing participants with a framework and process for better understanding their context and taking appropriate action.
How It Works
Leading Across Differences is flexible enough to use for a single one-hour session or for an extended course. The information in the facilitator's guide will help you craft a session or series of sessions organized around specific learning outcomes.
The package consists of a comprehensive casebook and a facilitator guide. The casebook includes the Leadership Across Differences Framework, 13 research-based cases, 11 chapters written by leadership experts, nine individual exercises, as well as references and resources to extend the learning.
As short as a 1 hour session or as long as a semester-long course
