The Business of We
January 20, 2021
Hosted by Mahesh Joshi
Laura Kriska on the power of We. There has never been a more important time for leaders to foster connection among people of diverse backgrounds. To thrive in the global marketplace teams must learn to work across differences of age, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status and many other identity factors. Laura talks about how to prevent Us versus Them culture clashes by promoting inclusion in the organizations to increase employee retention and productivity and to prevent misunderstandings that lead to lost time and increased legal risk. Laura offers a practical roadmap at a time when stakeholders at all levels – investors, employees, customers – are demanding action that will lead to lasting change. These timely tools can help any leader successfully navigate Us versus Them dynamics to create cohesive, productive and inclusive teams.
