2020 DIAN Meeting 1: Bridging the Gap Through Dialogue

Virtual | DIAN Members Only

Description

Is it increasingly challenging to find common ground in not just your business plans and strategies but also everyday conversations? Fear, uncertainty and volatility can create communication gaps within teams across the organisation. How does one contend with these difficulties to arrive at decisions with cohesion and synergy? The solution lies in the dialogue. In this virtual meeting, we explore the strategies and tools required to facilitate meaningful conversations.
 

  1. Discover best-practice frameworks to apply when exploring solutions to current challenges and ways to leverage opportunities.
  2. Reflect on underlying cultural nuances when handling conflicts.
  3. Explore strategies to successfully manage stressful, emotional situations in the workplace.

 

Dial in individually or join the meeting together with other colleagues/ERGs. DIAN members have the benefit of unlimited dial-ins.

This event is for DIAN members only.
