Join Association Chat host KiKi L'Italien as she interviews founder of Christina Blacken about using leadership and narrative intelligence for addressing culture change and inclusion.
Some of the questions discussed during the show:
  • What is The New Quo?
  • Why are stories so important for us to understand when trying to change the status quo?
  • What do leaders need to know about the role that narrative intelligence plays in driving behavior and making change happen? - Is the social contract broken?
  • Is our social contract something that can be repaired and improved?
  • How can association leaders make the biggest difference in addressing inequality internally with their staff and externally with their members and organizational stakeholders?
  • What are signs or signals to a leader that shows that they are on the right path with regard to creating meaningful change with regard to equality? What is a sign that maybe they aren’t?

Christina Blacken is a public speaker, performer, podcast host of "Sway them in Color," and founder of The New Quo is a leadership development and communication consultancy helping leaders tap into their narrative intelligence and the psychological power of story to transform behavior, build an inclusive culture, and communicate new ideas with deeper connection and influence to achieve their goals.
