How to Work With and Lead People Not Like You
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 6:30 AM

HR Conference

A diverse workforce leads to better decisions and solutions and has been proven to grow business and profits; but when the person in the next cube or office is different from you, friction can arise. How do you work alongside someone who may be quite different from you, while respecting those differences and being effective in your role?

Join Kenja Purkey at the 2018 HR Conference in Oklahoma City, Aug. 8-10, for an insightful session on "How to Work with and Lead People Not Like You."

Register before the early bird registration deadline of July 6, and save money!

Leadership isn't about seniority or position; it’s about influence, forming connections, and building trust. Therefore, it's imperative that you know what motivates people—and what doesn't. Regardless of gender, age, life stage, race, ethnicity, or even communication preferences, you'll learn to create a deep values-based connection between you and your associates, clients, and prospects.
