Tracey will focus on ways that small business owners and their staff can share intercultural spaces with their clients and customers (and each other) in these trying times. So many of us come from different backgrounds and cultures and it can be difficult to see another person or cultures perspective. Small business owners are in unique positions to attract and retain clients from diverse groups and cultures. In order to do this there is a need to have an understanding of how to Build Bridges of Trust that are authentic, sustainable, and long lasting. This is exactly what this workshop addresses.You will walk away with tools and ways to Build Bridges of Trust with your diverse client/customers. Join us to:
* RECOGNIZE the spaces and/or cultures we inhabit individually as well as the various spaces or cultures our clients/customers may inhabit.
*ANALYZE the oppressor within and ways this might be blocking us from building trust with one another and with our clients/customers. (We will be using comedic tools to keep this light.)
* IDENTIFY 3 ways our perspectives may be blocking us from building trust with each other and with our clients.
* PROPOSE 1 way to re-think or re-construct the spaces we inhabit individually in order to build trust with each other and with our clients.
