About the Presenters
Facilitated by Figure 8 Consulting, owners, Carol and April believe becoming culturally competent is not a destination, nor is it just about figuring other people out. It is about becoming more aware of who we are in the context of the increasingly complex and culturally diverse world in which we live and work. It is a process, one of learning how to foster better relationships, how to be more productive, and how to improve job performance.
They facilitate trainings that help organizations improve customer service, build more highly functioning teams, capitalize on the skills of all employees, build better relationships within organizations…..and have fun at the same time.
