Promoting the Practice of Presence

Promoting the Practice of Presence

Summary: To be present means to show up, to occur, or to exist. We must ask ourselves, “Are we present in our daily lives?” We bring with us our experiences, beliefs, and values in everyday interactions that influence how we show up and the relationships we establish. This session will explore our cultural values and journey through how we can more impactfully and effectively work with those we encounter in work, leisure, and life.

Intended Audience: Adult learners

Objectives: In this session, participants will increase their capacity to...

  • Explain the relationship between emotional intelligence and cultural intelligence
  • Understand factors that drive effective work across differences
  • Implement strategies that promote collaborative relationships
