Connecting Across Cultures w/ Tayo Rockson

Have you ever wondered how to turn the adversity in your life into a positive asset? 

Today I am joined by a true polymath, Tayo Rockson, to discuss what it means to “Use Your Difference to Make a Difference.” As a professor, consultant, speaker, poet, and author Tayo has explored how growing up as a 3rd culture kid gave him the unique ability to help others bridge the gap to become culturally fluent. 

If you love immersing yourself in local culture while traveling, you are not going to want to miss this episode. Tayo shares the lessons he’s learned growing up a minority in 5 countries over 4 continents, how to have cultural fluency as a traveler, the key to changing old behavior, and why no lived experience is wasted. 

What kind of contract would you make with yourself for future growth? I’d love to hear what it looks like and hope you will share by sending me an audio message.
