00435 Conscious Leadership with Dr. Jonathan Locust, Jr.
Tuesday, February 27, 2024
12:00PM - 1:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

Join us for Game Changers with Dr. Jonathan Locust, CSSBB, Founder and President of the Locust Group.

During this session, Dr. Jonathan Locust, Jr. will present the conscious leadership framework, illustrating key concepts through personal stories and experiences. Conscious leadership recognizes the interconnected and energetic dynamics within individuals and organizations. Leaders embracing this approach understand the pivotal role of energy—manifested through thoughts, intentions, and emotions—in shaping collective consciousness. Dr. Locust will delve into the 4-step process that he employs, offering insights for other leaders aiming to cultivate conscious leadership.

Dr. Locust is a consultant and strategist in the areas of DEI, research design, and statistical/process analysis. His expertise is drawn from his years in higher education as a Chief Diversity Officer and Adjunct Professor. Dr. Locust is deeply engaged in independent and organizational study. Most of his research is proprietary and focuses on predictive modeling of consumer behavior outcomes through a lens of equity (ie. jury cases, UX research, demographic preferences, etc.). He is a certified six sigma black belt (CSSBB) and has a thorough understanding of all aspects of the DMAIC model to improve process efficiency.

Dr. Locust has co-authored and published articles in academic journals and received over 2 million dollars in grants. He has been recognized by the University of Cincinnati as one of their 50 “Communication Alumni Champions”, and a recipient of the “National Role Model” award from Minority Access, a nonprofit organization with the mission of assisting institutions to recruit and retain underserved and underrepresented populations.

00428 Why Cultural Intelligence Matters
Wednesday, March 13, 2024
12:00PM - 1:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

Leadership is contingent upon continuous personal and professional development, beyond traditional work-ready skills. Leaders that can navigate our dynamic places of work that thrive on thought leadership and diversity in culture are the ones that display the unique gift of cultural intelligence (CQ).

From a leader’s perspective, cultural intelligence is the ability to understand, adapt to, and leverage cultural differences to lead diverse teams and organizations successfully. It involves understanding the norms, behaviors, and expectations of different cultures, including national, ethnic, organizational, generational, and other group cultures, and adjusting one's leadership approach accordingly.

Please join Dr. Kevin Groves to learn about what it means to build cultural intelligence. Kevin will discuss:

  • Why our globalized world requires leaders to adapt a new approach to work differently with teams, clients, and partners from diverse cultural backgrounds.
  • Given the emphasis on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, leaders with high CQ can create a work environment where unconscious bias is mitigated so that employees from various backgrounds and generations feel valued and can contribute their best.
  • Leaders with cultural intelligence are better equipped to navigate and resolve conflicts, preventing them from escalating and affecting team dynamics.
  • Leaders with cultural intelligence are more successful in organizations seeking to expand internationally, because they understand local market dynamics, effective marketing strategies, and the importance of building mutually beneficial relationships.

In addition, Kevin will provide an overview of UCI’s Global Leadership Program, that he designed specially to help learners build and develop their cultural intelligence skills.

Kevin S. Groves, Ph.D., is President of Groves Consulting Group, LLC, and Professor of Management at Pepperdine Graziadio Business School. The consultancy supports businesses, non-profit organizations, and public agencies with leadership and organization development solutions, including customized 360-degree assessment tools, executive development program design and facilitation, succession planning systems, executive team development, strategic planning facilitation, and high-potential identification and development practices.
