Mastering Conflict by Bridging Differences

Thursday, April 22 (11 AM ET | 8 AM PT | 5 PM CET)
Breakdowns in communication are hitting a new low every day as we get increasingly polarized in our positions on a wide range of social issues. The lack of constructive dialog is leading to conflict at home, at work, and across borders. Some of us find ourselves stumbling in heated arguments, while others avoid such conflict by suppressing their authentic voice. And when dialog breaks down, we are unable to surface issues, explore perspectives and achieve breakthroughs. But it does not have to be this way.

Join Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa in conversation with Fred Dust, a world-renowned expert of designing conversations that matter, live on Intersections on Thursday, April 22 (11 am ET | 8 am PT | 5 pm CET).  

Fred Dust is the founder of Making Conversation, LLC and works at the intersection of business, society and creativity. As a designer, author, educator, consultant, trustee, and advisor to social and business leaders, he is one of the world’s most original thinkers, applying the craft and optimism of human-centered design to the intractable challenges we face today. Using the methodology in his book Making Conversation, Fred has been working as the Senior Dialogue Designer with The Rockefeller Foundation to explore the future of pressing global needs; and with The Einhorn Collaborative and other foundations to host constructive dialogue with leaders ranging from David Brooks, Reverend Jenn Bailey, and Vivek Murthy to rebuild human connection in a climate of widespread polarization, cynicism and disruption. He also serves as faculty at the Esalen Institute. As a former Global Managing Partner at the acclaimed international design firm IDEO, Fred works with leaders and change agents to unlock the creative potential of business, government, education, and philanthropic organizations. 

The times when people learn the most and are most open to change are when they are coming out of a crisis. If we’re not designing for how we have dialogue in those critical—potentially curable—moments, we won’t be able to get to radical change.”—Fred Dust 

Join us live on Intersections on Thursday, April 22 (11 am ET | 8 am PT | 5 pm CET) and walk away with key insights on how to:

  1. Translate moments of conflict into collaborative, win-win exchanges
  2. Fuel your everyday conversations with intention and purpose

Creating a Values-Based Culture

Thursday, April 8 (11 AM ET | 8 AM PT | 5 PM CET)
Join Prof. Hitendra Wadhwa on Intersections this Thursday, April 8 (11 AM ET | 8 AM PT | 5 PM CET) in a dialog with his colleague Paul Ingram, the Kravis Professor of Business at Columbia Business School, on today's imperative of infusing corporate culture—and our personal lives—with the right values.

Prof. Ingram's teaching on leadership and culture has won him the Dean's Award for Teaching Excellence and the Executive-MBA Commitment to Excellence Award. His research has been published in more than sixty articles, book chapters and books, and has received numerous distinctions. He consults on issues of leadership, organizational design and strategy to leading companies in the finance, health care, insurance, energy, arts, education, and consumer products industries.

Today, the business world is on fire. Corporate leaders are witnessing a growing hunger, from inside their organizations and outside, for the workplace to reflect the right values—values such as inclusion, empathy, autonomy and service to humanity. Those organizations that aren't adapting face serious reputational and performance risks.

How can leaders take their people on a journey toward articulation, awareness, alignment and action along a shared set of values? How do employees harmonize their personal values with the organization's values? How do these shared values relate to performance? What role should business schools play to help create more values-based cultures in business? 

Prof. Wadhwa will invite Prof. Ingram to share his groundbreaking work on individual and collective values, and on how—as one example—the value of inclusion can be best practiced in organizational settings. You will learn some surprising and uplifting truths about human nature, and the possibilities for all of us to be agents of positive change in our organizations.
