Everywhere we go, we hear stories from leaders about how a politically charged culture is poisoning relationships, splitting organizations and creating stress far above normal. Yet, our country needs leaders at all levels who can manage themselves in polarization by thinking clearly, acting out of deeply held principles and staying connected to people who see things differently. And that’s a lot easier said than done. In this episode, we discuss attitudes and practices that will help us lead effectively in these challenging times.
- Leaders and organizations are in crisis due to political and emotional polarization
- Getting out of the echo chamber
- The right to be wrong—staying connected to people who see things differently
- Differentiation of self in a politically anxious system
- Moving away from the extremes
- Practices for self-management in the face of difference
