Diversity & Civil Discourse

January 30, 2017
2 pm Eastern, 1 pm Central, 12 pm Mountain, 11 am Pacific

How do leadership program professionals help support communities who appreciate their diversity – the quality or state of having many different forms, types, ideas, etc. – and who accomplish this appreciation through civil discourse – the engagement in conversation intended to enhance understanding.

Today’s world is full of jumping to conclusions, assuming the worse, bad manners and quick tempers and sadly, many of these behaviors are coming from our public and private officials, those who seem to have the ‘ear’ of the community. Are leadership program professionals equipped to instill a sense of professional behavior in those attending their program and the alumni who represent the organization as servant leaders in their community?

Join us on Monday January 30th for the first Leadership Connections call of 2017 when you’ll hear from two dynamic professionals working to change the dysfunction of our conversations into healthy discourse.
