Kituku to train spear on cultural diversity
— Next brown-bag lunch scheduled for Dec. 6 —

Understanding and managing a buffalo in the workplace like cultural diversity can prove challenging without the necessary spears. Learn about those spears from Vincent Kituku, author of “Overcoming Buffalos At Work & In Life,” at ITD’s third brown-bag lunch program Dec. 6 at noon in the Headquarters auditorium.

His topic will be “Moving Forward in Challenging Times: How to Balance Work and Life While Thriving with Cultural Differences.”

The talk will cover a variety of points including:

  • How to move forward without leaving your life behind
  • Three must-know human dynamics for you to thrive in any cultural settin
  • Proven strategies for overcoming challenges, and
  • What matters in life and how not to leave it to chance

The popular writer and motivational speaker inspired state administrative support personnel to overcome and thrive beyond their buffaloes at the 23rd annual Administrative/Support Staff conference last month in Boise.

Kituku, a native of Kenya, Africa, draws on a rich cultural heritage and in-depth experience in corporate America to help others apply strategies of personal and professional success to their lives.

He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Nairobi and a master’s degree and doctorate from the University of Wyoming. He has worked extensively with both the government and private sectors.

Kituku encourages everyone attending the presentation to consider bringing food or clothing items for the Boise Rescue Mission, where he serves on the board of directors, or contribute to the sponsorship of an African child’s education through the Caring Hearts & Hands of Hope organization, where he is president.
