Host Steve Potter talks to guest Amy S. Narishkin, PhD, the Founder of Empowering Partners’ about Cultural Intelligence, about the ability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt our behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. As employees develop cultural self-awareness, as well as cultural other-awareness, they experience greater safety and belonging. Empowering Partners’ first step with your organization is to identify the current behaviors that hinder productivity. Diversity can either work for or against you organization. Without Culteral Intelligence, different perspectives can increase defensiveness, stereotypes and stonewalling. Because it’s not easy to determine the root cause of the problem, we can begin by noticing and naming the symptoms.
