Quote: “Be known as a leader who made a difference.” Kanchan Prinsloo
Just how diverse is the culture in your workplace? Are there people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, etc.? Is it balanced or could it be much more inclusive?
On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne we’re talking with my friend and Executive Coach Kanchan Prinsloo about what it takes for people of culture to become more authentic leaders and how their cultural differences can help them to create an open and welcoming workplace for everyone.
Kanchan is a professional executive coach, facilitator and speaker committed to both
Women of Culture (WOC) leaders and leaders of WOC leaders. As a speaker and facilitator, she helps organizations prevent turnover and build their brand with retaining diversity of thought.
