Silver Spring, Md. (PRWEB) October 09, 2016
Leadership from Cook Ross Inc., a certified woman-owned consulting firm that specializes in organizational cultural development, will be leading a panel session at next week’s 2016 National Diversity Women’s Business Leadership Conference held in Baltimore, Md. on Oct. 10 and 11.
During their “Leading in a Time of Fear” panel session, Howard Ross, founding partner, and Rosalyn Taylor O’Neale, principal consultant, will help participants identify the psychology and neurobiology of fear, examine the impact it has in the workplace and determine what leaders can do about it.
“Today’s world causes extreme amounts of stress and fear in our society. Incidents like shooting of black men and women by the police, race or political agendas, Islamophobia, anti-immigrant hysteria, and so many more events have left our collective culture reeling,” said Howard Ross, founding partner, Cook Ross. “Leaders can no longer pretend that these incidents do not impact our employees and our organizational community.”
The 11th annual conference celebrating women in leadership is themed “No More Glass Ceilings: Dispelling Myths, Removing Organizational Barriers & Equipping Women With Executive Traits to Ensure Leadership Success.” Expected to attract 400 attendees, the conference aims to support the leadership and executive development of women of all races, cultures and backgrounds.
“I am honored to participate in this conference and look forward to helping attendees deepen their knowledge of how fear is impacting their employees,” said Rosalyn Taylor O’Neale, principal consultant, Cook Ross. “By understanding the science behind fear, and examining its impact on themselves as leaders, women can enact intervention strategies to effectively manage workplace fear.”
The “Leadership in a Time of Fear” session will take place from 2:30-4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 10.
