Responsible Gambling Council Appreciates Intercultural Competence in Leadership
Hamlin Grange delivers his farewell address to the Responsible Gambling Council after three years of intercultural leadership as Chair of the organization’s Board of Directors.
Hamlin Grange, Chair Emeritus of the Responsible Gambling Council, shares a mutually appreciative moment with Shelley White, CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council.
Recently at a dinner in downtown Toronto, the Responsible Gambling Council honored DiversiPro founder Hamlin Grange at the end of his three-year term as Board Chair for outstanding leadership.
One by one directors rose to praise Hamlin for his outstanding leadership during a particularly challenging time in the not-for profit organization’s history.
Incoming Chair, Mr. Yvon Lemire, made a reference that moved some audience members close to tears. He described Hamlin as a real-life Armand Gamache—the main character in Canadian author Louise Penny’s Three Pine Series. The fictional Canadian police inspector is portrayed as a thoughtful, courageous and wise leader who asks the right questions in tough situations. He takes
care of his team and in his private life is a dedicated father and grandfather, a good friend and a lover of literature and the arts. He carries some old wounds. He occasionally makes personal and professional mistakes, but acknowledges and works to correct them. His values are solid.
Over the last 20 years, through DiversiPro, Hamlin has taught countless leaders to embrace Intercultural Competence as a catalyst for organizational change. Here are some of the insights produced by employees in one client organization.
