Overview

The MultiDentity Mindset introduces you to a complete set of specific skills and personal qualities needed to operate successfully in The Age of MultiDentity. Successful businesses and thriving communities will be looking for those who hold this mindset. The MultiDentity Mindset describes the kind of person it will take to successfully deal with the escalating fragmentation and polarization that occurs between numerous values, ideologies, and identity groups that hold differing agendas, social goals, and degrees of power.

The book explains how and why powerful forces are working together to rapidly reshape our old notions of identity at every level, including what identity means in the personal, organizational, and national contexts. We’re fast approaching the time when companies and agencies will no longer invest in teaching you the skills you need to get along with all kinds of “others.” Your future employer will expect you to come to the game with those skills.


Description

The Age of MultiDentity is here. This new age, has rendered past approaches to dealing with cultural and identity issues between those who hold differing values, agendas, social goals, and degrees of power meaningless. The book explains how powerful forces are rapidly reshaping our old notions of identity at every level, including what identity means in the personal, organizational, and national contexts. The MultiDentity Mindset presents the approach you'll need to deal with the dynamic challenges resulting from globalization, changing demographics, technology, multiple social movements, as well as the increased fragmentation, and polarization they bring.

The MultiDentity Mindset introduces you to a complete set of specific skills and personal qualities you'll need to operate successfully in the MultiDentity Age. Successful businesses and thriving communities will place a premium on those who hold the MultiDentity mindset. The MultiDentity Mindset describes the kind of person it will take to successfully deal with the escalating tensions between those who hold differing ideologies and identity perspectives.

In the Age of MultiDentity you'll hear hateful words, experience mean-spirited deeds, and see degrading images—all attacking or mocking some aspect of who you are, and often produced and consumed as pure entertainment. You’ll have to develop thicker skin, and personal strategies to deal with intolerance or be doomed to live in a state of perpetual outrage or constant fear. The MultiDentity Mindset will help you effectively use the power you have to deal with the identity based challenges you'll face at work and in the community.
