What happens, when cultural diversity meets extraordinary leadership
Im Rahmen einer Kurzmitteilung der Harvard Universität heisst es
„Over the course of the workshop, Mr. Roppelt and Mr. Yeman combined their theoretical expertise in rhetorical and communication theory (Christian Roppelt) and applied high-level entrepreneurial leadership processes (Isack Yeman) to teach the students about the necessary methods and communication skills to communicate as aspiring global leaders in organizational settings, with a focus on managing cultural diversity“
Wieso das Thema Diversität?
Wir sind der Meinung, dass Diversität kritisches Denken und somit Synergieeffekte in Teams oder Organisationen fördert und einseitigem Gruppendenken entgegenwirkt. Auszug aus der offiziellen Ankündigung:
“Good leadership is the ability to challenge and change the status quo. Respect for diversity involves thinking critically and acting differently, being willing to see situations in new ways. Leadership that respects diversity creates synergy—it raises a group’s capacity to create and innovate, leading to success in organizations and multicultural teams. But synergy is not free! In this workshop, you will learn and practice the methods and communication skills to become an exceptional leader who utilizes this synergy to successfully manage the challenge of changing processes in an organization.”
Die Vorträge und der Workshop waren ein voller Erfolg, was auch der guten und engagierten Mitarbeit der Teilnehmer zu verdanken war. Ein Auszug aus dem offiziellen Referenzschreiben:
“Mr. Roppelt and Mr. Yeman excelled at first providing the theoretical foundations to create a shared knowledge base among the students before engaging them in an extensive exercise that included different case studies of challenging intercultural communication scenarios.
The two workshop leaders presented highly complex theoretical knowledge while being in a constant, open exchange with the participating students, as well as continuously inviting and incorporating their opinions and feedback. In the workshop’s practice unit, the students were challenged with a role play in which they could practice and enhance their intercultural sensitivity and communication skills at an executive leadership level. Mr. Roppelt and Mr. Yeman subsequently provided thorough feedback on the “diversity challenge” presentations that the teams had shared in front of their workshop peers, which enabled the students to thoroughly reflect upon the previously learned and implemented materials.
The participants left the workshop with an extensive toolbox of newly acquired communication skills that were summarized in the elaborate workshop reader, as well as the confidence to successfully apply them in the future. Furthermore, they gained invaluable experience practicing intercultural communication skills with their fellow students from across the globe. Thank you for this inspiring and enriching experience.“
