What does it mean to be Diplomatic in Finance?
When you hear the word Diplomacy it conjures up images of government or state officials negotiating and influencing outcomes. Sometimes these diplomatic acts make the news such as the well-publicised Trade Wars between the US & China or how to coordinate nations to better deliver on climate change targets, although most go unreported. So I was a bit taken aback when someone said they thought I had been diplomatic during the week, because I didn’t really think of our work like that and also I didn’t deliberately know how to be diplomatic.
So In this bite-sized episode I explore some thoughts on as what diplomacy might look like in Finance and how we can get better at it.
