In today’s global marketplace, cultural differences remain very real–and often get in the way of effective leadership. But culture-crossing experiences are happening locally too. As we work and live with people from a range of backgrounds, cultural agility is a practice that can benefit our businesses and communities.

This month’s Kitsap Business Forum opens a conversation about culture—how to engage in a diversity of perspectives, how to respond to and perform well in varied and unfamiliar cultural contexts, and how to foster effective cross-cultural collaboration.

Key Take-Aways

  • Practical tactics for boosting your cultural agility and improving your effectiveness as a leader
  • Latest research findings on cultural intelligence and the neuroscience of building high performance multicultural teams
  • Key indicators of equity and inclusion in a healthy local economy and how these measures support a service excellence approach and a shared vision
