    Critical Conversations for the Authentic Leader

    Are your dialogues full of energy, hope, and a sense of purpose? Is there a willingness to speak uncomfortable truths and consider new perspectives?  

    The health of any team or community can be measured by the quality of its one-to-one interactions. While conflict is an inevitable part of life, it can be a positive force toward diversity, creativity, and strength. Yet many of us avoid conflict and sidestep difficult conversations, often unconsciously, creating gaps between ourselves and those most critical to our success.

    During this immersive program, which includes a special session with Scott Kriens, 1440 co-creater and former CEO of Juniper Networks, you will:  

    • Gain practical skills for navigating conflict in all relationships 
    • Increase capacity and tolerance for the robust dialogues necessary for teams and organizations to thrive 
    • Learn internal practices to manage responses and reactions during difficult conversations 
    • Recognize your approach to critical conversations through the concepts of authentic leadership.

    Disrupting Workplace Bias: A Workshop for Modern Leaders

    Bias is natural, personal, cultural, and institutional. As leaders, we all have biases, expressing them often without any awareness of their presence or impact on our thoughts, behaviors, and decision-making.

    In this transformative workshop, leadership expert Michelle Maldonado provides practical tools and guidance to mitigate bias impact, empowering you to create inclusive, high-performance work environments where everyone thrives.

    Maximize your ability to disrupt and counter biases at work by learning:
    • The impact of workplace and institutional bias and what you can do about it
    • The neuroscience of bias, including impactful research and numbers that can't be ignored
    • The consequences of microaggressions and the role of intersectionality
    • Conventional and contemplative tools and practices for disrupting or reducing unconscious bias
    • Ways to create cultural competency and promote psychological safety across your team and organization.

    Left unattended, bias can unintentionally create cultures of division, disengagement, or worse. Join us as we use the results of the Harvard Implicit Bias Test to spur deepened awareness and much-needed insight. Leave with an action plan to mitigate the devastating effect of bias and create a working environment that serves all in maximizing their full potential.
