How we show respect and disrespect – Even our handshakes are different
Ambition in the Latino culture – How to spot it and cultivate it
Education – The Old School vs. the New School
Pride in our companies – How we show you we care
We are immigrants and we are patriots – Yes, it is possible to have two homes
The presenter will address these points and address some of the biggest misconceptions of working alongside Latino employees.
