C10/D10: Communication Paradoxes - CANCELLED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Update: Unfortunately, this session has been cancelled. Please select alternate sessions in blocks C&D. 







Please note this is a double block session that runs through blocks C & D. The five paradoxes leaders and managers in the twenty‐first century need to consider are... the: paradox of knowing (self and other); paradox of focus (individual and communal); paradox of communication (direct and indirect); paradox of action (doing and being); and the paradox of response (time focus: short and long‐term)​ ​" Beth Fisher-Yoshida and Kathy Geller​​. Take part in this a card-playing simulation, Barnga, and explore the communiation paradox. Barnga allow​s​ participants to gain insights about their​ ​communication styles. Since communication is challenging across cultures it serves​ leaders to develop​ ​more effective means of​ ​communicating.
