Pearson Partners HR Roundtable: Making Waves
Jun 4 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

making-waves-book-coverWhy is it so hard for us to start big or small changes in our teams, organizations or community?

Our thoughts get in our way and we rely on the same steps that work for other situations. But, a true change—a wave—is different, says Patti Johnson, CEO of PeopleResults and former Accenture Senior Executive. A wave requires stepping out and building commitment that grows organically.

At our June 4 DFW HR Roundtable: Make Waves: Be the One to Start Change at Work and in Life, Patti Johnson will share how anyone can start or contribute to a wave by diving into topics such as:

  • Relying on “What can I do?” in any situation
  • Why having all of the answers can work against you
  • Why you need Idea Partners
  • How to get started—without a perfect plan
  • The impact of true experimentation
  • How to build a community around your wave
  • Trends in the workplace and our culture that are transforming how change happens
  • Why organizations committed to growth, innovation and personal accountability need more Wave Makers and how to develop them

Patti Johnson has researched and interviewed an eclectic mix of Wave Makers, from leaders in business and the community to entrepreneurs and new professionals, to explore the decisions and actions of individuals who started a change.

What’s your wave?

Pearson Partners HR Roundtable: Cultural Diversity in Team Building
Apr 21 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Pearson Partners HR Roundtable: Cultural Diversity in Team Building @ Pearson Partners International | Dallas | Texas | United States

Driving Profitability and Cultural Competence
in Culturally Diverse Global Teams

Featuring Nicole DiRocco
Author, Speaker, Executive Coach

The impact on bottom-line financials is significant to companies unaware of how to operate as an enterprise in other parts of the world. As organizations expand, when investing in human capital abroad, cultural competency is a key factor for success for the individual and the larger, global team.

The importance of translating this understanding throughout the enterprise when managing remote teams and a culturally diverse workforce in global industries is an integral component to the success of companies. Risks of blindly applying one’s own cultural norms to culturally diverse workforces can negatively impact productivity, engagement and morale. We must commit ourselves to change our thinking and our doing for companies and individuals to succeed in a multi cultural society.

After attending this luncheon, you will:

  • Understand the risk of cultural incompetence with employees, colleagues and suppliers relative to profitability, productivity, engagement and morale
  • Identify where you are on the cultural competence continuum
  • Understand the five elements of organizational cultural competence
  • Learn the four steps to help you acquire cultural competence

Pearson Partners HR Roundtable: Unleash the Power of Diversity
Jun 9 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Pearson Partners HR Roundtable: Unleash the Power of Diversity @ Pearson Partners International | Dallas | Texas | United States

Unleash the Power of Diversity

Featuring Debjani Biswas, author, international public speaker and change agent

Cultural diversity savvy is critical for business results in an increasingly global workforce. Debjani Biswas has developed groundbreaking new frameworks and a practical guide to increase effectiveness through multi-cultural competence. In his endorsement, Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers50 Award Winner for Most Influential Leader Thinker in the World says:

“Diversity—it’s been a buzzword in corporate and political circles for about a decade. But most books on leadership and management simply don’t address its importance to an organization’s ability to survive and thrive. Enter Mukherjee-Biswas’ Unleash the Power of Diversity. After reading her thought-provoking book, few executives will be able to ignore the relevance of diversity to their company’s growth and success.”

The Five Judgments analyze the very real cost of stereotyping in the workplace based upon:

  • Reputational Currency
  • Physical Impact
  • Auditory Cues
  • Distinguishing Markers
  • Work Product

A Diversity Foray provides a practical global toolkit of Do’s—*Ask * Adapt * Accept * Appreciate—and Don’ts, with real life scenarios from multiple continents.

Debjani Mukherjee Biswas is an author, international public speaker and change agent. Principal of Coachieve, she specializes in diversity strategies, executive coaching and leadership effectiveness. She has an eclectic combination of executive and corporate experience.
