Stop hating, start collaborating: Bridging workplace differences

Improve workplace collaboration

Last fall, Gallup reported more than 75% of Americans believe the US is more divided than ever. Whether it’s politics, ethnicity, or even sports teams, we sooner or later must work with others very different from us – and it’s easy to fall into a “us vs. them” mindset that hinders performance. This webinar demonstrates a process which can build collaboration and trust across generational, ideological or other kinds of barriers in the workplace.
