Enabling Impact through Cultural Fluency

There is an enormous buzz about twenty-first-century leadership competencies that reflect the evolving nature of both the organizational culture as well as the disparate expectations of stakeholders that organizational leaders have to effectively navigate. All of the aforementioned comprise the basis of an integrative approach to knowledge about self, choiceful actions and fundamentally about creating value for those that we serve as leaders. Such an integrative approach weaves in one’s leadership duty of care obligation at all levels of the organization and goes beyond the bounds of compliance or political correctness. In the Emancipatory Leadership frame, leaders ask the following critical question: How can the organizational culture offer a confluence of conditions within which all members of the organization can find meaningful engagement? Such an approach requires both intentionality and the requisite frameworks and tools for effective implementation. The session will explore these phenomena in an experiential and practicable manner.
