      How To Connect Effectively Across Cultures with Tayo Rockson and Barbara Furlow-Smiles

      Note:  Your ticket includes - and is the same price as - the book! The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Tayo Rockson and his new book on cultural competency, Use Your Difference To Make A Difference with Barbara Furlow-Smiles. Join us to learn more about the three ways to learn how to connect effectively across cultures in divisive times. Become more culturally competent in an increasingly diverse world  Recent years have seen dramatic changes to several institutions worldwide. Our increasingly interconnected, digitized, and globalized world presents immense opportunities and unique challenges. Modern businesses and schools interact with individuals and organizations from a diverse range of cultural and national backgrounds—increasing the likelihood for miscommunication, errors in strategy, and unintended consequences in the process. This has also spilled into our daily lives and the way we consume information today. Understanding how to navigate these and other pitfalls requires adaptability, nuanced cross-cultural communication, and effective conflict resolution.   Use Your Difference to Make a Difference provides readers with a skills-based, actionable plan that transforms differences into agents of inclusiveness, connection, and mutual understanding. This innovative and timely guide illustrates how to leverage differences to move beyond unconscious biases, manage a culturally-diverse workplace, create an environment for more tolerant schooling environments, more trusted media, communicate across borders, find and retain diverse talent, and bridge the gap between working locally and expanding globally.   Use Your Difference to Make a Difference is a must-have resource for any educator, parent, leader, manager, or team member of an organization that interacts with co-workers and customers from diverse cultural backgrounds.   Tayo Rockson is a writer, speaker, consultant, and media personality who runs UYD Management - a strategic leadership and consulting firm that helps organizations incorporate sustainable diversity and inclusion practices. As someone who has lived on 4 continents, he is an authority in communicating effectively across cultures. In addition to that, he's been named a "Top 40 Millennial Influencer" by New Theory magazine. He hosts the popular As Told By Nomads podcast and his book Use Your Difference To Make A Difference which is based on how to connect and communicate in a cross-cultural world is scheduled to come out on September 4, 2019. All events are subject to cancellation, so please check back.
