Article Type 

The Center's Management & Leadership Development Program (MLDP) welcomed Sadhana Hall and Professor Christianne Wohlforth to present a session on Global Leadership on November 2nd. Sadhana Hall is the Deputy Director of the Rockefeller Center and Professor Wohlforth is the Associate Director of the Dickey Center for International Understanding and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Dartmouth's Department of Government.

The speakers described intercultural sensitivity to MLDP participants as one's willingness to adapt to a different cultural context without changing his or her identity. Moreover, they emphasized that the ability to develop intercultural sensitive will broaden one's worldview and increase his or her capacity to learn within different contexts.

MLDP participants worked together in small groups to analyze different intercultural dialogues and practice how they would respond to different situations with greater intercultural sensitivity. The session concluded with the participants creating individual SWOC analyses (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Challenges) to determine how they can best become effective global leaders.
