Thrive by Embracing Difference

This podcast series answers all sorts of deep questions that we face daily in our workplaces and asks us to reflect on how we can best embrace our differences and harness them for better performance.

By Evrard

Why might you want to go into an argument seeking and hoping for a fact that will prove you wrong? What should you do when a job interviewer makes assumptions about you based on your gender or background? How are organizations consistently overlooking most main leadership skill areas when picking their management and other top talent? 

This podcast series answers all sorts of deep questions that we face daily in our workplaces and asks us to reflect on how we can best embrace our differences and harness them for better performance. We'll see how to keep our workplaces safe from bullying and harassment, how to be more aware of our unconscious biases, and what dialectical thinking offers in solving problems. 

The podcast series comes from experts in the fields of leadership, critical thinking, mental health, and more, including Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, Donna Butler, Tom Chatfield, Dave Mitchell, Marshall Goldsmith, and Dorie Clark. 

The podcasts are short-form (generally 2-5 minutes) and offer actionable techniques for improving our performance and work environments as well as the stories of those who have applied them successfully.
