Previous Events & Seminars
In August, as part of our Global Learning & Development Seminar Series we introduced a Cultural-Based Leadership Seminar with expert, Dr. Mary Perez Hattori.
Culture-Based Leadership Development by Dr. Mary Perez Hattori
For Pacific islanders and other indigenous people, authentic leadership means mobilizing our past and our ancestral heritage as a vehicle for success in the future. Authentic leadership begins with an awareness of your own values and cultural norms. Using the awareness as a foundation of your professional practice enables greater authenticity, empowerment, personal and professional satisfaction, and the ability to support these positive outcomes in those you lead.
This seminar highlights elements of Dr. Hattori’s Chamoru culture that form the foundation of a culturally sustaining leadership within the context of American Institutions. Each topic throughout the 3-day seminar are applied directly to leadership and management ensuring relevance and application for participants. Participants are guided through activities to promote connections between their own experience and the program content.

“Wow what a conference! I am still buzzing about it and excited about implementing this information. This was also great because I connected with Laken and Cathy to bring in professional development to our staff members who may not have the opportunity to attend various conferences and seminars. I am super excited about the future.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful things you taught us about during our culture-based leadership development class.”
