Flex: The New Playbook for Managing Across Differences

In this presentation, Jane Hyun offers a proactive strategy for managers to navigate and leverage diversity effectively in this new global economy, showing managers how to:

  • Understand the power gap, the social distance between you and those in the workplace of different cultures, ages and gender.

  • Flex your management style by stretching how you work and communicate with others, and bridging the gap with more effective communication, feedback tools and building healthy teams.

  • Multiply the effect by teaching these skills to others and closing the power gap with clients, customers and partners to create innovative solutions.
