RGLP Recap: Intercultural Developmental Inventory Session (2)

This is a session recap of the Rockefeller Global Leadership Program (RGLP) from a participant's perspective.
Today’s session was illuminating, as I had never actually named or discussed different pacing styles. Reflecting on my own interactions, I realized I tend to pause in formal or academic environments, overlap with close friends and take turns in casual environments with acquaintances. Discussing Donald Trump also made me realize that my strong political beliefs can change me into an overlapper very quickly as well. Lastly, I realized that speaking to someone with a very different style can definitely come across as very rude, or that I can feel as if I am being ignored. This made me think of many classes here at Dartmouth that have a participation component and often reward the people who talk the most, although their ideas may not be as well developed or substantial. I think he different communication styles we discussed today should be studied and recognized in academics, as well as in the business field.

RGLP Recap: Intercultural Development Inventory Session

This is a session recap of the Rockefeller Global Leadership Program (RGLP) from a participant's perspective.
This Monday, our journey on the road to intercultural efficacy and understanding, began with a simple case study. Amy Newcomb, a Student Programs Officer and Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Academic Director at the Dickey Center for International Understanding, presented the RGLP team with three ways in which individuals converse with each other:

(1) Turn-taking: a conversational model wherein both parties take turns talking about the subject matter, with person B responding to the opinion and statements of person A.

(2) Pacing: a conversational structure that incorporates pauses to the flow of discussion in order to ensure that the conversation remains thoughtful and deliberate.

I breathed for the first time this term during RGLP's hot yoga session. It has been a very busy term for me, and yoga gave me the opportunity to stop and reflect, something that I haven’t had a chance to do in a very long time. Amongst the different body contortions and deep breathing, I thought about my recent trip abroad and my transition back to Dartmouth. I remembered how conscious I felt during the trip, and how the slower and more laid back atmosphere of a backpacking and study abroad experience in Barcelona compared to my current blur of Spring Term.

This week RGLP participants had the pleasure of participating in a session with Dr. Dottie Morris, Chief Officer of Diversity and Multiculturalism and Title IX Coordinator at Keene State College. Much of our session centered on the concept of identity—how we as individuals come to understand identity, what elements of our lives and experiences have influenced its development, and if identity is even a constant in a world of fluctuating circumstances.

When we had our first session of RGLP and the program overview presentation mentioned yoga as the activity for one of the sessions, I was definitely skeptical of its relevance to the RGLP curriculum. To me, yoga has always been just a glorified stretching routine. I never really saw its importance or took the people who regularly practiced and swore by it seriously. I had never done yoga before, so jumping right in at “hot” yoga had never really crossed my mind as a potential activity of mine.
