Aligning Strengths, Values, and Differences to Maximize our Collective Potential

Extraordinary leaders commit to creating contexts that engage employees maximally. This means enabling employees of diverse perspectives and backgrounds to bring their best selves to work – leveraging their unique strengths and experiences to make valuable, authentic contributions to their organizations. Dr. Laura Morgan Roberts presents evidence-based insight that will help you activate the unrealized potential that diverse perspectives and experiences can bring to your organizations. This session builds upon an appreciative perspective for learning about, learning across and learning from differences, while fully acknowledging the “best-self blockers” that biases and inequity present for our workplaces and communities.

The webinar is presented by the University of Virginia:
