Workshops for Diplomats


In an increasingly multi-polar world, the roles of diplomats are in transition, with new actors, processes and challenges on the global stage.  It is ever more important to anchor oneself in core values and objectives, and forge exciting new orientations to navigate new terrain responsively.

The question is not either the nation or the world. It is, rather, how to serve the world by service to our nation, and how to serve the nation by service to the world.
