Virtual Session
Dates Offered Time Location
December 17,  2020 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. Virtual Classroom via Zoom

Face is the new social currency of our time. The concept of face is essential in human relations and leadership. Face represents one’s self-worth, identity, reputation, status, pride, and dignity. “Saving face” is a universal concept that enables you to connect with people, break down barriers, and build trust and long-term relationships.

Participants will learn the concept of honoring, losing, and saving face so they can build authentic relationships and creating a culture of psychological safety for their teams.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What does it mean to apply the concept of face at work, and why is losing face such a bad thing?
  • How do you build up the “face account” and avoid the risk of “over draft”?
  • How can leaders embrace face to forge stronger, authentic partnerships with clients and colleagues across cultural, generational, and gender differences?

Date: December 17, 2020.  Please note this session is being offered through The Institute for Management Studies (IMS). Registration will close Tuesday, December 15th, at 8:00 AM to allow time to get the link from them.

Time: 10:00 – 11:00 AM
