Cultural Diversity and Business Leadership - Part 2
October 18, 2014 – Round Table Discussion @ 8 PM CDT
Major areas to be discussed:
1. Major Issues to consider for Workplace Diversity
2. Importance of Cross Cultural Communication
3. How Cultural difference affect business communication
4. Strategies for inter-cultural communication
5. Cultural differences in Leadership styles
6. Influence of Cultural competency on Leadership performance
7. Action steps to develop and Change the Culture of the Workplace.
Culture creates the foundation for strategy and will either be a company’s greatest asset or largest liability.
Human nature instinctively rejects change of any sort, even if the change will be beneficial in the long run.
To win the hearts and minds of your coworkers, as a Leader, you must be authentic and forthright about how you approach the creation of a new corporate culture.
Reprogram Your Genetic Code To Achieving Success in LIFE
Radio Talk, October 11, 2014 @ 8 PM CDT
Continuing from last week about the Mind Power, but, in a little more detail on how we might change our life as part of reprogramming our Subconscious.
There is now scientific evidence of specific molecular changes – DNA Activation - in the body following a period of mindfulness meditation.
Now, we not only understand the relationship between the mind and body but also have the scientific evidence that our thoughts and beliefs can actually change our genetic code.
If you are looking for greater clarity in life and improved health, DNA activation may be the jumpstart you need to achieve this.
Mind Power and Success Philosophy
Radio Talk, October 04, 2014
"Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
The totality of our consciousness is comprised of three levels: the conscious, the subconscious, and the Superconscious. These levels of consciousness represent differing degrees of intensity of awareness…
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve“ ~ Napoleon Hill
"Money Is Usually Attracted, Not Pursued." ~ Jim Rohn
"Your Subconscious Beliefs Create Your Realities."
"Your subconscious mind cannot differentiate what is real or vividly imagined. Through repetition, the image you visualize must come to pass."

Cultural Diversity and Business Leadership - Part 1
September 20, 2014 – Round Table
Diversity refers to the differences in people: age, gender, race, religion, culture and economic upbringing.
Formal cross-cultural awareness training is very helpful for problem solving on multicultural business teams.
The positive influence of cultural diversity facilitates members of the organization to build relationships and acknowledge each other regardless of their differences of origin and background.
The growing cultural diversity in the Global economy presents some potential for conflict in the workplace if not handled appropriately.

Being Judgmental – Part 3
Radio Talk, September 13, 2014
Judgmental is not stating an opinion or even labeling something as "good" or "bad". Being judgmental is when based on one quality of someone or something you conclude about his whole nature, about all his other qualities. You judge his wholeness based on one aspect.
“Be Curious, Not Judgmental.” ~ Walt Whitman
Judgment is a Thought that Arises within Awareness.
Even very enlightened people judge! It is the nature of the human mind. And, it’s usually more harmful than helpful. Working to let go of being judgmental is a lifelong practice—one that can start right now in this moment.
Be Non-Judgmental of Yourself and Others
Radio Talk, September 06, 2014 @ 8pm Chicago Time
We don’t even bother to get to know the people… yet we can’t keep a handle on that muscle inside our mouth – to judging the people. That tongue is like a whip lash on the heart if left untamed. And this very tongue has the power to inspire and empower with love if we live heart centered lives.
Stop Being Judgmental, and Start Being Compassionate.
Being non-judgmental, can lead to lower levels of depression, anxiety and stress-related illnesses.
“Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation. It’s not what they are not doing or should be doing that’s the issue. The issue is your own chosen response to the situation and what you should be doing. If you start to think the problem is “out there,” stop yourself. That thought is the problem.” ~ Stephen Covey in his famous 7 Habits of the Highly Successful People

Why are People so Judgmental?
Radio Talk, August 30, 2014
"When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself." – Wayne Dyer
“It is not for me to judge another man's life. I must judge, I must choose, I must spurn, purely for myself. For myself, alone." –Hermann Hesse, in Siddhartha
“We are all hypocrites. We cannot see ourselves or judge ourselves the way we see and judge others.” –José Emilio Pacheco, in Battles in the Desert and Other Stories
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." –Matthew 7:1-2
"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." –John 8:7
"Whenever we act as judge between people, we make them hate each other even more and one side ends up hating us, too." –Izzy Kalman
"Before You Judge me, make sure that You are Perfect."
Judging is a precarious business. Traditional psychology and most religious and ethical systems advise us not to judge our fellow human beings. Judging other people makes it difficult to understand and help them.

Some of the contributors include: Matthew Fox, Gregg Braden, Byron Katie, Marianne Williamson, Masuro Emoto, Lama Surya Das, Patch Adams and Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi. This show and the book will inspire you to consider what it means to you to pray---how do you connect with the Greater Consciousness? "How we pray is as diverse as each being on our planet..."
