How do you align a global and interdependent workforce – with teams and individuals each representing unique perspectives and priorities – and ensure that everyone is moving in the same strategic direction? Is it possible to be rooted to a particular team, business function or physical location and still be connected to the mission, culture and issues that shape a global organization? Watch as Dr. William Gaudelli – 8th Dean of the College of Education at Lehigh University, prominent international scholar and author of “Global Citizenship Education: Everyday Transcendence” – unpacks how learning can help break down organizational borders and silos and support intercultural connection and understanding. In this LX Signature on-demand webinar, Dean Gaudelli:
- Examines the social implications of “placelessness” and how to address calls for belonging and community in remote work environments
- Discusses key insights from his research on Global Citizenship Education (GCE) and how to support more meaningful human interactions at scale and across cultural divides
- Explores ways to cultivate greater awareness, empathy, and understanding throughout a global workforce and how to reconcile the “end of history illusion” against the universal need for continual learning and upskilling
