Once a month, Sights on Success Consulting hosts and facilitates, pro bono, the Intercultural Sharing Circle (formerly the Diversity and Cross-Cultural Sharing Circle), a community building peer mentoring group, to foster leadership development in intercultural competence. The Intercultural Sharing Circle uses a coach-approach to help participants shift towards intercultural attitudes and mindsets of understanding, respect, acceptance, and adaptation to both cultural differences and similarities.
Through active listening and non-judgment, the Intercultural Sharing Circle aims to increase both cultural self-awareness and cultural awareness about others across diversity dimensions such as age and generation, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, religion, etc. so that participants can learn to become more inclusive, equitable, and effective leaders.
