Flex: The New Playbook for Managing Across Differences
In this presentation, Jane Hyun offers a proactive strategy for managers to navigate and leverage diversity effectively in this new global economy, showing managers how to: Understand the power gap, the social distance between you and those in the workplace of different cultures, ages and gender. Flex your management style by stretching how you work and communicate with others, and bridging the gap with more effective communication, feedback tools and building healthy teams. Multiply the effect by teaching these skills to others and closing the power gap with clients, customers and partners to create innovative solutions.
