Bouncing Back: Developing a Culture of Resiliency
D,I&E: Core Competency: Integrity/Responsibility/Ethics. As organizations bring diverse cultures together, there is often an imbalance between creating a cohesive workforce identity and respecting differences. Central to resolving such issues is resiliency—an attitude that our reactions to circumstances can be skillfully managed—and that making the best from the worst is essential. Increased diversity sometimes comes hand-in-hand with conflict and negative interactions. Whether we find ourselves the target or the unintentional perpetrators or insensitive comments, discovering practical ways we can foster a spirit of resiliency amid these disruptive interactions will help us develop and maintain meaningful and authentic relationships with our colleagues. Participants will learn the importance of strategies for self-care in order to develop the ability to bounce back from intercultural misunderstandings.
