“The arts make up a significant percentage of how humans communicate with each other and see each other. Becoming aware of others’ mode of operating is essential to our own success. Understanding our similarities and differences is the foundation on which one builds healthy relationships.” – A Win-Win Culture: How Inclusivity Drives Innovation in the Business World
