If you are leading a global team today, odds are you have teammates around the world experiencing a whole new reality. Recent world events have made us aware, perhaps now more than ever before, of our global connectedness and interdependence. For many multinational companies, it is the connection of people across borders and cultures […]
High performance teams aren’t born, they’re built. They’re carefully crafted with help from leaders who understand how to position different talents to complement each other, how to communicate productively and encourage others to do the same, and how to get the most out of the diversity present.

Her too?! That has been my stunned and, yes, privileged reaction to the recent social media movement of women posting: “Me Too.” Some included this explanation and call to action: If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote “Me Too.” as a status we might give people a sense of […]
It was a great day. It wasn’t the size of the crowd. It wasn’t the glitz and glamour of the event. It wasn’t the status and credentials of the attendees. It was the heartfelt purpose of men gathering from different backgrounds to discuss how do we best support one another to address a divided society […]
Regretfully, there won’t be an article on D&I from The Kaleidoscope Group this month. I was contacted by Mary Hunter, our Senior Vice President of Business Development – She’s a woman, which is totally fine with me because I treat everybody the same.
