116: Creating Civility and Respect at Work

What if there were a way to create a workplace (and world!) where people genuinely respect those who aren’t like them? That’s the focus of Robin Rosenberg’s work. As CEO and Founder of Live in Their World, Robin combines her expertise as a clinical psychologist with her passion for using Virtual Reality for good. Join our conversation to learn about the programs she’s created to help all employees of a company become more sensitive to bias and its effects…and develop more respectful and productive ways to interact with each other.

Robin is board certified in clinical psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Psychology. She has taught psychology classes at Harvard University and Lesley University and has written psychology textbooks. She’s also had psychotherapy and coaching practices in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.

You’ll discover:

  • How Robin defines civility in the workplace
  • Why she prefers the sequence of Equity, Inclusion and Diversity (EID) instead of DEI.
  • The impact on workplace behavior when someone is able to experience virtually what another person goes through when being disrespected
  • The challenges of remote and hybrid work environments…and how to overcome them

114: A Higher Ed Leadership Program with REAL Impact

What does it take to prepare college and university students to be effective leaders when they graduate? My guest Tom Kolditz knows exactly what’s required…and he’s making it happen as Executive Director of the Doerr Institute for New Leaders at Rice University—the most comprehensive, evidence‐based, university‐wide leader development program in the world. Tom was hand-picked by billionaire John Doerr to create this program. What Tom and his team have achieved in the past 6 years is ground-breaking and highly effective.

Then for 4 years he was the founding director of the Leader Development Program at the Yale School of Management.
