Experiential development suggestions

  • Get involved in a diversity initiative and work out an organisational approach for leveraging interpersonal differences
  • Keep a learning journal about the issues and opportunities you've faced and how you've responded - reflect on what worked and what didn't, and what you'll do differently next time
