Happy Birthday to The SEEN!
Join us for our 3rd Birthday: Monday, September 30th at 5:30pm at La Tourelle! SEEN member and leadership expert Al Gonzalez will speak on how some modern entrepreneurs are thriving on a model that drives business opportunities through giving. Together we will explore how to apply this model to our individual efforts and to the evolution of the SEEN in general. Learn more here. Al Gonzalez is the founder of the GIVE Leadership Institute and Senior Operations Officer for Cornell’s Division of University Communication.
On the 50th anniversary of the I Have A Dream speech, we at GIVE Leadership would like to share this post that can help us all to continue the good work as a society.
*Inclusion is a Personal Choice
This podcast explores "invisible" diversity items that must be addressed to enable a truly inclusive organizational culture. We tend to focus on visible signs such as gender, race, age and sexual orientation.
Inclusion programs must ensure we are not excluding others on the basis of diversity items such as:
~Personality ~Our perception ~Leadership style ~Communication style ~Work preferences/styles ~Privilege ~Culture, and other invisible types of diversity.
Join us this week as we explore a loan program that most bankers don’t want the small business owner to know about. Chris Hurn, author of the Entrepreneurs Secret to Creating Wealth and CEO of Mercantile Capital Corporation, shares tools and techniques that make owning commercial property easier than what the banks want us to think!
As you will learn, small business owners have a huge advantage in being able to use the ownership of their business to create wealth, regardless of what happens to the business itself!
Chris Hurn is providing evidence that entreprenuers can succeed by taking into consideration the people they serve, a critical component of the triple bottom line!
Join us this week, as we continue our exploration of Latino leadership with Juana Bordas, author of The Power of Latino Leadership.
If you are not latino, The Power of Latino leadership is a MUST read to better understand the latino community, our history, and how to leverage our strengths in order to run successful organizations while creating a society we want to live in.
If you are latino, The Power of Latino Leadership is a MUST read because it teaches us about our past in order to prepare us to lead beyond the status quo.
As you may know, our schools and workplace cultures are plagued by bullying, negativity bias and low employee engagement. Can the latino legacy of diversity and inclusion help us change the status quo? This week we focus on Latino People, a very important and large component of the triple bottom line.
