WHEN: Wednesday, July 11, 2018 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM (CST)
WHERE: Larkspur Bistro & Bar, 904 E Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS 67202
Join us for our WPC Monthly Luncheon and Meeting on Wednesday, July 11 for our program “Stop Hating, Start Collaborating: Bridging Workplace Differences.” Our guest speaker is Daniel White, an organizational development consultant with AGH CPAs & Advisors. Doors at Larkspur open at 11 a.m. so come early to network and beat the parking rush! Our lunch buffet begins at 11:30 a.m.
Gallup recently reported that more than 75 percent of Americans believe the U.S. is more divided than ever. Whether it is politics, ethnicity or even sport teams, we sooner or later must work with others very different from us–and it is easy to fall into a “us vs. them” mindset that hinders performance. Daniel White will share a process which can build collaboration and trust across generationsa, ideological or other kinds of barriers in the workplace.
Daniel White assists organizations and their organizational development needs, including strategic and operational planning, family business advising, business coaching, leadership development and employee engagement efforts. He has worked with a wide-range of industries including construction, manufacturing, banking, not-for-profits and government organizations.
Prior to advising organizations, White worked in not-for-profit leadership and operations, directing projects with clients such as the U.S. Department of State and the United Nations Population Fund. He has been published in multiple national publications and several academic journals, and he has presented at national conferences.
A Wichita native, White received a bachelor’s degree in communications from Wheaton College in Chicago and a master’s degree in organizational development from Friends University. He currently teaches organizational development at Friends University.
