Making the Case for Leading Across Differences Despite the growing challenges and opportunities created by our interconnected world, many leaders do not know how to handle situations in which there are misunderstandings or conflicts rooted in differences -- especially differences steeped in social identities, such as gender, religion, race, ethnicity, and country of origin. Filled with practical, relevant, and usable information, Leading Across Differences includes a wealth of illustrative examples for learning what it takes to lead a wide-range and diverse group of constituents.
This Facilitator's Guide provides information on how to create and facilitate a session based on the accompanying Casebook. It also includes group debriefing suggestions as well as additional exercises intended for groups. Several chapters provide practical advice from practitioners about the elements of successful facilitation and session management.
