Important Announcements


Leading with Cultural Intelligence

Capitalize on the diversity of Silicon Valley and a global workforce by developing leaders who can adapt to multi-cultural teams and cross-functional project situations.  Easier said than done.  Complexity and time are working against our best efforts, so we need new tools to reinvigorate established leaders while engaging young talent to deliver on the current set of business objectives.

By attending this free session, you will learn about Comprehensive cultural assessment tools and Neuroscience based leadership practices in an Activity oriented learning format. 

The result is a fun, energized workshop that shifts mindsets, reinforces skills and sets a game plan for applying what you have learned back at work, all while inspiring hope for the future!
