I thought I had a pretty good handle on the challenges of Diversity... But that was before I met Celia Young. Celia's presentation was nothing short of stunning. Her passion, insight and delivery had an impact on the audience unlike any I'd seen. One could literally see 'the lights coming on' in the individuals who publicly responded to her series of observations and questions. Afterwards, everyone I spoke with said Celia's presentation was one of the most eye-opening, meaningful and practical they had experienced.

Through Celia Young & Associates consulting and coaching services, Ms. Young helped P&G's Asian Community develop a vision and strategy for retention and advancement of Asian Professionals at P&G. She not only helped improve the attrition rate among our Asian leaders significantly, she and her colleagues also coached 100 leaders including Asian professionals and 'two-up' managers to understand, participate in and own the development of Asian talent - consistent with Company principles and objectives. She helped unleash the leadership potential among promising Asian leaders. She enhanced senior management's awareness and competencies in their ability to manage and utilize Asian talent.

Becoming a Globally Competent and Multiculturally Versatile Leader
No one will argue with you when you say that the world is increasingly diverse and the global village is at your front door. The question is: Are you as a leader prepared to lead in this increasingly complex and diverse world? Is your organization truly global or just everywhere? People have been doing business around the world for thousands of years. Often, success and failure of an international business transaction depends on more than just technology, product, pricing and delivery. Whose rules have they been following? Is that the only way to do business? Is your idea of globalization nothing more than Americanization?
Your organization and your people depend on your ability to help navigate through the diverse and challenging waters. Your passion and capability to demonstrate your global competence and multicultural versatility are essential to your leadership success.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have:
